Team (Record) City, ST

1 (1)
Booker T Washington Logo
Washington (7-0) Miami, FL

Booker T. Washington got a fight from local power Miami Northwestern, but this Tornado team isn't to be denied. Gulliver Prep is next on the schedule, and the Raiders bring a sparkling 6-1 record to the game. But this one isn't likely to be close.

Last: Def Northwestern 21-9
Next: 10/17 Gulliver Prep (6-1)
2 (2)
Allen Logo
Allen (6-0) Allen, TX

Every time I think Allen is going to get a tough game, the Eagles blow out their competition. This week was no different. Plano East is a solid team, but they were no match for Allen falling 45-7. Plano West is a good team as well, but that hasn't seemed to make much difference this year.

Last: Def Plano East 45-7
Next: 10/18 @ Plano West (4-2)
3 (3)
Miami Central Logo
Miami Central (5-1) Miami, FL

Norland had a losing record, but they're a deceptively good team who has played a tough schedule. Norland kept it respectable at 28-0. Next up is Miami Northwestern, fresh off its game against No. 1 Washington. Ugh.

Last: Def Norland 28-0
: 10/18 @ Northwestern (3-3)
4 (4)
DeSoto Logo

DeSoto (6-0) De Soto, TX

Like Allen, DeSoto has been making mincemeat of their opponents. Mansfield Timberview is another good team that got blown out last week as the Eagles won 55-20. DeSoto has averaged just over 50 points per game this season, and they don't show any signs of slowing down.

Last: Def Mansfield Timberview 55-20
Next: 10/18 @ Midlothian (3-3)

5 (5)
Paramus Catholic (5-0) Paramus, NJ

Paramus Catholic had an easy go of it against St. Mark's last week, and despite Don Bosco's losing record, the Paladins know not to take Don Bosco lightly.

Last: Def St. Mark's 56-6
Next: 10/18 Don Bosco Prep (2-3)
6 (6)
De La Salle Logo
De La Salle (6-0) Concord, CA

De La Salle was idle last week, and the bulk of their remaining schedule will serve as a tune up for the Spartans annual trip to Southern California for the State Bowl game. Logan is the next victim.

Last: Idle
Next: 10/18 Logan (5-1)
7 (7)
St. Joseph Regional (4-0) Montvale, NJ

St. Joseph Regional was off in preparation for one of its toughest games of the season in St. Peter's Prep. The Marauders bring a 6-0 record into the game including solid wins over Bergen Catholic and Eastern Christian Academy.

Last: Idle
Next: 10/18 @ No. 50 St. Peter's Prep (6-0)
8 (8)
Saint John Bosco Logo
St. John Bosco (6-0) Bellflower, CA

We had wondered what St. John Bosco would look like if they put together a complete game with a team that includes over a dozen D1 prospects. Unfortunately for Santa Margarita, they're the ones that found out as Bosco put together one of the most impressive performances of the season in California. Each week should be a challenge for the remainder of the year for Bosco.

Last: Def Santa Margarita 56-12
Next: 10/18 Orange Lutheran (6-0)

9 (9)
Manatee logo
Manatee (7-0) Bradenton, FL

A trip to Palmetto proved to be a good test for the Hurricanes as Palmetto hung tough in a 35-14 loss. Considering Manatee's last three games finished 175-7 combined, this one was a nail biter by comparison. Manatee should get another solid win this week at St. Petersburg before their showdown with University.

Last: Def Palmetto 35-14
: 10/18 @ St. Petersburg (5-1)
10 (10)
Katy Logo
Katy (6-0) Katy, TX

Katy has been blowing out a relatively weak schedule in their classification. Seven Lakes is undefeated heading into the game on Friday; they won't start Saturday morning that way.

Last: Def Katy Taylor 44-0
Next: 10/18 Seven Lakes (6-0)
11 (11)
Colerain (7-0) Cincinnati, OH

Colerain got back in gear after a tough game two weeks ago against Princeton. The Cardinals beat Sycamore by three scores, and they'll beat Mason by more than that this week.

Last: Def Sycamore 40-22
Next: 10/18 Mason (3-4)
12 (12)
University School Logo Ft. Lauderdale
University (7-0) Ft. Lauderdale, FL

University was idle last week in preparation for Glades Central this week. This isn't one of the Raiders' better teams, but University knows they can't take Glades Central lightly as they look towards next week's showdown with Manatee.

Last: Idle
Next: 10/18 @ Glades Central (3-3)
13 (13)
Hoover Logo
Hoover (7-0) Hoover, AL

Hoover handled Hillcrest with little difficulty, and Minor won't be much of a challenge this week either. 

Last: Def Hillcrest 28-6
: 10/18 @ Minor (3-4)
14 (14)

Northwestern (7-0) Rock Hill, SC

Northwestern rolled over Clover last week, and it may be even worse this week against Fort Mill.

Last: Def Clover 49-6
Next: 10/18 @ Fort Mill (2-5)
15 (15)
Byrnes (6-1) Duncan, SC

Byrnes took it easy, in a manner of speaking, on Riverside. The Rebels only beat Riverside 57-0 in a game they could have named the score. This week brings a dangerous Gaffney team who beat Byrnes twice last year.

Last: Def Riverside 57-0
Next: 10/18 Gaffney (5-2)
16 (16)
  Bellevue Logo
Bellevue (6-0) Bellevue, WA

Bellevue blew out Interlake last week. Mount Si is undefeated and a solid team in the state of Washington, but Bellevue has outgrown its competition in the Evergreen State.

Last: Def Interlake 52-13
Next: 10/18 Mount Si (6-0)
17 (17)
Oscar Smith (5-0) Chesapeake, VA

Oscar Smith has had back to back blowout wins. Nansemond River will make it three in a row.

Last: Def Deep Creek 70-6
Next: 10/14 @ Nansemond River (2-3)
18 (18)
North Gwinnett (6-0) Suwanee, GA

North Gwinnett got all it wanted from Mill Creek and more in a 50-47 shootout. The Bulldogs escaped last week with the win but should need no magic tricks this week against Habersham Central.

Last: Def Mill Creek 50-47
Next: 10/18 @ Habersham Central (0-7)

19 (19)

Lamar (5-0) Houston, TX

Westside was 5-1 heading into a game they lost by 50? How bad is Lamar going to beat 0-6 Math @ Science Tech? Get the calculator out.

Last: Def Westside 71-21
Next: 10/19 Math & Science Tech (0-6)
20 (20)
Brother Rice (7-0) Bloomfield Hills, MI

Brother Rice sent Canada Prep home with a convincing 38-10 win without being too inhospitable. The Warriors should get another comfortable win against Detroit Jesuit on Saturday.

Last: Def Canada Prep 38-10
Next: 10/19 Detroit Jesuit (4-3)
21 (25)
Archbishop Moeller (7-0) Cincinnati, OH

Moeller took care of business against a good Elder team. Indianapolis Cathedral is playing .500 ball right now, but the Fighting Irish are always a dangerous opponent.

Last: Def Elder 35-14
Next: 10/18 Indianapolis Cathedral (4-4)
22 (21)
Mater Dei (6-0) Santa Ana, CA

Mater Dei jumped on Servite early then controlled the game that was never in doubt. The Monarchs get JSerra this week who was thumped by Orange Lutheran last week. Mater Dei and St. John Bosco play in the same league and face tough schedules, including each other the rest of the way. 

Last: Def Servite 28-21
Next: 10/18 @ JSerra (5-1)
23 (22)
Miramar (7-0) Miramar, FL

Miramar was convincing in its win over Everglades, beating the Gators in every aspect of the game. The Patriots will get a stiffer challenge from undefeated Flanagan this week.

Last:  Def Everglades 35-0
Next: 10/18 Flanagan (7-0)

24 (23)
Mountain Pointe (7-0) Phoenix, AZ

Mountain Pointe kept Brophy Prep in rebuilding mode, thumping the Broncos 31-0. This week's game against Corona del Sol is going to get ugly.

Last: Def Brophy Prep 31-0
Next: 10/18 Corona del Sol (1-6)
25 (24)

Aquinas (5-1) Fort Lauderdale, FL

Aquinas wasn't going to be challenged by Northeast. Cypress Bay will put up more of a fight, but the Raiders shouldn't be in danger of a loss this week.

Last: Def Def Northeast 60-6
Next: 10/18 Cypress Bay (4-3)
26 (26)
Karr (4-1) New Orleans, LA

Karr got a huge scare from O. Perry Walker in a 26-22 win, but the Cougars shouldn't get the same resistance from King this week.

Last: Def O. Perry Walker 26-22
Next: 10/17 King (1-5)
27 (27)
Serra (6-0) Gardena, CA

Serra put it all together against Harvard-Westlake in a 63-7 win that the Cavaliers led 56-0 at halftime. This week brings an excellent Chaminade team in what is likely the first of two contests between the two rivals.

Last: Def Harvard-Westlake 63-7
Next: 10/18 Chaminade (5-1)
28 (28)
John Curtis Christian Logo
John Curtis (4-2) River Ridge, LA

Curtis ran the gauntlet of its schedule already and should cruise the rest of the regular season including an easy win over St. Charles Catholic last week. 

Last: Def St. Charles Catholic 46-13
Next: Bye
29 (29)
McEachern (7-0) Powder Springs, GA

McEachern had no trouble with South Cobb last week, but moving North this week will be more of a challenge for the Indians.

Last: Def South Cobb 40-0
Next: 10/18 @ North Cobb (5-1)
30 (30)
Punahou (8-0) Honolulu, HI

Punahou welcomes an easy game against Pac-Five after its thrilling win over St. Louis two weeks ago. The Buff 'n Blue have the week off as they make their way towards the playoffs.

Last: Def Pac-Five 59-7
Next: Bye
31 (31)
Coppell (4-1) Coppell, TX

Coppell had two weeks to stew over its loss to Allen, and the Cowboys took advantage of the bye week to prepare for a good Hebron team. Coppell won a tough game and will win an easy one this week.

Last: Def Hebron 24-14
Next: 10/18 Flower Mound (1-5)
32 (32)

Aledo (6-0) Aledo, TX

Aledo has broken 80 twice already this season, and the Tigers will make it three times this week if they want to.

Last: Def Wyatt 84-7
Next: 10/18 Western Hills (0-6)

33 (33)

Saint Augustine (4-1) New Orleans, LA

St. Augustine had little trouble with Brother Martin in a 49-21 victory. The Purple Knights will get a much tougher game from Archbishop Rummel this week.

Last: Def Brother Martin 49-21
Next: 10/19 @ Archbishop Rummel (5-2)
34 (34)
Ensworth Logo
Ensworth (7-0) Nashville, TN

Ensworth hardly broke a sweat against Giles County. The bye week will be  a bigger challenge for the Tigers than many of their opponents

Last: Def Giles County 48-7
Next: Bye
35 (35)

Folsom (6-0) Folsom, CA

Folsom put the first loss of the season on Oak Ridge last week, and the Bulldogs liked the experience so much, they're going to hang a first loss on Jesuit this week.

Last: Def Oak Ridge 28-7
Next: 10/18 Jesuit (6-0)
36 (36)

St. Edward (6-0) Lakewood, OH

St. Edward was off last week getting ready for St. Ignatius. Some of the luster in this game was removed as St. Ignatius dropped their third game of the season last week. But St. Edward knows St. Ignatius' season can turn in an instant with a win over their rival on Saturday.

Last: Idle
Next: 10/19 St. Ignatius (4-3)
37 (37)

Salpointe Catholic (7-0) Tucson, AZ

Salpointe Catholic ran up another big score on Rincon last week. They'll run up another on Vista Grande this week.

Last: Def Rincon 63-0
Next: 10/18 Vista Grande (2-5)
38 (38)

DeMatha (7-1) Hyattsville, MD

Bishop McNamara was 5-1 heading into the game with DeMatha last week, but the records didn't display how different these teams are as the Stags won big. This week's game against Gonzaga should be a better test for DeMatha.

Last: Def Bishop McNamara 61-27
: 10/18 Gonzaga (5-2)
39 (40)
Apopka (6-1) Apopka, FL

Apopka has been rolling since its opening game loss to Byrnes (S.C.). The Blue Darters are off this week before getting back to work by pummeling Evans.

Last: Bye
Next: 10/18 Evans (1-5)
40 (41)
Mission Viejo (6-0) Mission Viejo, CA

Mission Viejo's regular season is all but over as far as drama is concerned. The Diablos won't get tested again until the playoffs.

Last: Idle
: 10/18 San Clemente (2-5)
41 (45)
Jenks (6-0) Jenks, OK

Jenks has been the class of Oklahoma this year with impressive wins over Union and Broken Arrow among others. The Trojans will get another good team this week in undefeated Westmoore, but it hasn't mattered much so far. 

Last: Def Broken Arrow 28-7
Next: 10/18 @ Westmoore (6-0)
42 (42)
Southlake Carroll Logo
Carroll (5-1) Southlake, TX

Carroll wasn't going to be challenged by Richland last week, but Northwest should put up a fight on Friday.

Last: Def Richland 48-9
: 10/18 @ Northwest (5-1)
43 (43)

Ocean Lakes (6-0) Virginia Beach, VA

Cox was one of the better opponents on Ocean Lakes' regular season schedule, but the Dolphins still won handily. They'll win even bigger this week in Virginia Beach against First Colonial.

Last: Def Cox 31-6
Next: 10/18 @ First Colonial (4-3)
44 (44)

Sandy Creek (5-0-1) Sandy Creek, GA

Shaw was a power in Georgia just a few years ago, but oh what a difference a few years can make. Alexander should keep it closer, but Sandy Creek is still a big favorite.

Last: Def Shaw 49-0
Next: 10/18 Alexander (4-2)
45 (46)
Mentor Football Logo
Mentor (6-1) Mentor, OH

Brunswick should have been a tougher game for Mentor. That Mentor blew them out shows us that the Cardinals are peaking heading towards the playoffs again.

Last: Def Brunswick 45-3
Next: 10/18 @ Solon (4-3)

46 (47)

Lowell (7-0) Lowell, MI

Lowell had a breather last week against Caledonia, and they needed it to get ready for a showdown with Christian this week.

Last: Def Caledonia 53-25
Next: 10/18 Christian (6-1)
47 (48)

Bingham (8-0) South Jordan, UT

Bingham heaped a little more dirt on the once promising Jordan season with a 48-28 win over the Beet Diggers. Copper Hills won't be much of a challenge this week.

Last: Def Jordan 48-28
Next: 10/16 Copper Hills (1-7)
48 (49)

Mallard Creek (7-0) Charlotte, NC

Mallard Creek got a big win over a tough Hough team on Friday. The Mavericks should handle Vance on Friday.

Last: Def Hough 38-21
Next: 10/18 @ Vance (4-3)
49 (50)

Oak Grove (7-0) Hattiesburg, MS

Oak Grove is rolling through Mississippi's best this season including a 38-10 win over Meridian that left little doubt. The Warriors get a break this week against Terry before a tough road test at Brandon next week.

Last: Def Meridian 38-10
Next: 10/18 Terry (4-3)
50 (NR)

St. Peter's Prep (6-0) Jersey City, N.J.

St. Peter's Prep moved to 6-0 with a convincing win over Union City, and the Marauders have wins over Bergen Catholic, Gonzaga, and Eastern Christian Academy who knocked of St. Ignatius (OH)  last week. The competition is about to pick it up a notch though as this week brings No. 7 St. Joseph Regional.

Last: Def Union City 48-12
Next: 10/18 No. 7 St. Joseph Regional (4-0)

In: St. Peter's Prep (N.J.)

Out: St. Ignatius (OH)
