As for what will happen when the teams actually take the field, we asked Creve Coeur area high school football coaches to offer up expert analysis:
De Smet Jesuit Head Coach Pat Mahoney:
I would take SF and give the points. The key to me is two levels of experience. While I think SF is the more talented team, they have to overcome their inexperience and youth vs. the passion and experience of Ray Lewis and his defense, and the older Harbaugh’s playoff and coaching experience. Ray will keep his guys focused...With all that said, Joe Flacco plays as he has the last few weeks and SF plays defense the way they did in the first part of the Atlanta game, Baltimore will settle in and make it a boring, ball control, field position game as they did vs. NE. I still think SF had better players and will win, but they are going to have to play fast and play their game.
Parkway North Head Coach Bob Bunton
A great match-up of two solid teams and coaching brothers. I'll go with the 49ers 23-13 due to their defense and the athleticism at QB.
Pattonville Head Coach Steve Smith
Though I'd like to see the Ravens win the Super Bowl, I predict the 49ers will win by 3 touchdowns. I believe the 49ers will attack Terrell Suggs in the running game, and Ray Lewis in the passing game. As inspiring as Ray Lewis has been, he's the obvious pass game mismatch for 49ers and they'll take advantage of it. The 49ers will also use Terrell Suggs' aggression against him, making him the read key in their zone/read scheme. The game will be very interesting and fun to watch but I see it as The 49ers 38, The Ravens 17.
