The Super 25 teams had their second consecutive uneventful week as teams won handily, for the most part.
That period of prosperity is in jeopardy next week as several teams begin the playoffs or have more difficult opponents.
The only real change this week is that John Curtis Christian (River Ridge, La.) slipped a spot to No. 18 as it had to come from behind to defeat Jesuit (New Orleans) 14-7 on Friday. When you defeat a defending state champion and slip in the Super 25, that shows how dominant the rest of the games were.
Seven Super 25 teams scored 60 or more points. The most lopsided win of the week was posted by No. 10 St. John Bosco (Bellflower), which defeated Servite (Anaheim) 70-6 as quarterback Re-Al Mitchell threw for three touchdowns and ran for a touchdown. While the blowout victory will likely help the Braves in some computer rankings, with all of the teams above it winning handily, there was no room to move up in the Super 25.
There was one other relatively close game. Warren Central (Indianapolis) defeated Carmel (Indianapolis) 40-30 as Tristan Tonte ran for four touchdowns and threw a touchdown pass. The win avenged a 30-20 win by Carmel last season over the Warriors.
There are a few games that could shake things up this week. No. 15 Cass Tech (Detroit) and No. 22 Kahuku, Hawaii, enter the playoffs, with the Technicians playing Mumford (Detroit) in the Detroit Public School League playoffs and Kahuku taking on Leilehua (Wahiawa) in the Oahu Interscholastic Association quarterfinals.
Other interesting games include No. 19 Warren Central (Indianapolis) at St. Xavier (Cincinnati) and No. 25 Loyola Academy (Wilmette, Ill.) vs. Providence Catholic (New Lenox).
