The regular season is coming to a close, which means league titles are up for grabs across the state. That's the case for every top game this week, including a matchup that pits Robbinsdale Cooper against Irondale in a battle for the Suburban Gold subdistrict crown.

Robbinsdale Cooper, ranked No. 3 in the Associated Press Class 5A poll, has been dominant in nearly every game, with its closest victory a 20-7 final against crosstown rival Robbinsdale Armstrong in Week 5. Last week, the Hawks (7-0, 3-0) dismantled North St. Paul 48-7.

Irondale (4-3, 3-0) has suffered a late-season slump, falling in three of its last four contests. Each loss was decided by three points or less, including last week's 16-13 nail-biter with St. Louis Park.

History also favors Robbinsdale Cooper in this matchup. The Hawks have won the last four games with Irondale, including a 42-12 blowout in last season's Class 5A, Section 5 playoffs.

These teams, as well as many others in the state, would love to grab some regular-season hardware heading into the postseason, but this matchup is this season's final Top Game of the Week.
