Can port channel in 3825 connect to two different switches?

We have one 3825 router used as voice gateway. For redudancy, we want to connect it to two different switches which has STP and HSRP running. Can I create a port-channel with two Giga interfaces in 3825 and connect to two different switches? Should I configure port channel in switch with only one port in each port-channel? I know server can be connected to different switches with NIC teaming. I just want to mimic that kind of setup. I did one time for port-channel in 3825, but it was connected to a stacked 3750X. So it's different case now.

Thanks for the help.

Re: Can port channel in 3825 connect to two different switches?

If you are connecting the 3825 to a stack of switches (3750), or a pair of 6500 (VSS) it will work fine, other then these, you have to connect the 3825 to only one switch (3560)

Thanks Reza for your answer. I'm thinking that way too. It appears I must connect it to one of switch. Kind of losing the redudancy by setting up that way...
