The Super 25 Computer rankings are provided by Ken Massey. The ratings are designed to reward teams for their performance, and objectively quantify those performances. Strength of schedule is built into the model. The model also corrects for home field advantage. Teams lose less for a loss on the road and gain more for a win on the road. Margin of victory also is factored in. Because some of the data is based on past performances, the computer will be more accurate as the season progresses.

After La Lumiere at No. 6 comes Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.), Houston Math and Science Tech, Garfield (Seattle, Wash.), and Klein Forest (Houston).
