* All Times ET (Eastern Standard Time)

1. Mater Dei, Santa Ana, California (12-1)

Result: Lost 39-34 vs. St. John Bosco (Bellflower, California)

Takeaway: Mater Dei has been a first-half team all season, but up until Saturday, it seemed as though that was just because the team took the foot off the gas after racking up insurmountable leads. But against St. John Bosco, a 28-5 lead in the second quarter doesn’t mean the game is over. Second half turnovers by Bryce Young and Kyron Ware-Hudson cost the Monarchs, and they couldn’t stop DJ Uiagalelei in the second half, as the Clemson-bound QB passed for 444 yards and five touchdowns. A red zone fumble by Young late in the fourth quarter all but ended the game. Mater Dei, who had run through the season unscathed, fell in the championship game. Recap >>>

2. St. Thomas Aquinas, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (13-0)

Result: Won 42-0 vs. Venice (Florida)

Next: Saturday, Dec. 14 vs. Edgewater (Orlando, Florida), 7 p.m. ET

3. Duncanville, Texas (13-0)

Result: Won 45-7 vs. Martin (Arlington, Texas)

Next: Friday, Dec. 6 vs. Southlake Carroll (Texas), 8 p.m. ET

4. St. John Bosco, Bellflower, California (12-1)

Result: Won 39-34 vs. Mater Dei (Santa Ana, California)

Takeaway: The Braves went on a 34-0 run after falling behind 28-5 to take down the seemingly unbeatable Mater Dei. DJ Uiagalelei threw for 444 yards and five touchdowns and wide receiver Logan Loya scored the final two touchdowns for St. John Bosco. The Braves managed to force turnovers against the sure-handed Mater Dei team, putting the ball into the hands of their playmakers and helping spark drives in the second half. With one more win, Uiagalelei will have secured his high school legacy. Recap >>>

Next: Saturday, Dec. 14 vs. De La Salle (Concord, California), 11 p.m. ET

5. St. Frances Academy, Baltimore, Maryland (11-1)

Next: Season Complete. Eligible for GEICO State Champions Bowl Series, Dec. 20-21

6. St. Louis, Honolulu, Hawaii (12-0)

Result: Won 45-6 vs. Kahuku (Hawaii)

Next: Season Complete. Division I Open state champions.

7. Katy, Texas (12-1)

Result: Lost 56-35 vs. North Shore (Houston, Texas)

Takeaway: North Shore got another chance after losing to Katy in the regular season. North Shore got its vengeance. The Mustangs dominated the rushing game as quarterback Dematrius Davis had 286 rushing yards and six total touchdowns and running back Zach Evans had a pair of touchdowns himself. Katy, after limiting North Shore to just 21 points in the season opener, couldn’t stop the Mustangs this time around. North Shore advances. What We Learned >>>

8. De La Salle, Concord, California (12-1)

Result: Won 49-7 vs. Pittsburg (Pittsburg, California)

Takeaway: De La Salle was who we thought they were: much better than any other CIF North Coast team. Since its season-opening loss to then-No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, Florida), California has been waiting for De La Salle to run through its season and win the sectional title — as it now has 28 times in a row — and get to the good stuff: the assumed game between the Spartans and the winner of No. 1 Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calfornia) and No. 4 St. John Bosco (Bellflower, California). Now, we wait. Recap >>>

Next: Saturday, Dec. 14 vs. St. John Bosco (Bellflower, California), 11 p.m. ET

9. IMG Academy, Bradenton, Florida (9-1)

Next: Season Complete

10. Chandler, Arizona (12-0)

Next: Saturday, Dec. 7 vs. Saguaro (Scottsdale, Arizona), 6 p.m. ET

11. Male, Louisville, Kentucky (14-0)

Result: Won 48-18 vs. Tates Creek (Lexington, Kentucky)

Takeaway: Jaylin Bross was a workhorse for Male, carrying the ball 31 times for 193 yards and five touchdowns. The Bulldogs had 478 total yards of offense as they won their 20th straight game and set up a date with cross-town Trinity to decide the state champion. The last time these two teams played was in September, a 20-17 double-overtime Male win. Recap >>>

Next: Sunday, Dec. 8 vs. Trinity (Louisville, Kentucky), 2 p.m. ET

12. Mentor, Ohio (13-1)

Result: Lost 28-21 vs. Pickerington Central

Takeaway: Mentor had some tough breaks, including an injury to quarterback Ian Kipp which he returned from but was limited, a touchdown called back due to holding and the ensuing 40-yard field goal that was missed. But more than anything, the Cardinals could not stop Pickerington Central quarterback Demeatric Crenshaw, who had three touchdowns, including the game-winner in the third quarter. Neither teams could score in the fourth quarter and Mentor head coach Steve Trivisonno’s final season ended sooner than the team wanted.

13. North Shore, Galena Park, Texas (12-1)

Result: Won 56-35 vs. Katy (Texas)

Takeaway: North Shore got another chance after losing to Katy in the regular season. North Shore got its vengeance. The Mustangs dominated the rushing game as quarterback Dematrius Davis had 286 rushing yards and six total touchdowns and running back Zach Evans had a pair of touchdowns himself. Katy, after limiting North Shore to just 21 points in the season opener, couldn’t stop the Mustangs this time around. North Shore advances. What We Learned >>>

Next: Saturday, Dec. 7 vs.  Atascocita (Humble, Texas), 3 p.m. ET

14. Carroll, Southlake, Texas (13-0)

Result: Won 48-27 vs. Midland Lee (Texas)

Next: Friday, Dec. 6 vs. Duncanville (Texas), 7 p.m. ET

15. Archbishop Rummel, Metairie, Louisiana (12-0)

Result: Won 37-27 vs. Brother Martin (New Orleans)

Takeaway: Don’t let that 10-point win fool you: Archbishop Rummel was in control of the game throughout, taking a 37-7 lead with 11 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and then taking the foot off the gas. All that stands between the Raiders and hoisting the trophy Catholic Baton-Rouge (Louisiana), a 12-0 team that shut out former Super 25 team John Curtis 14-0 on Friday.

Next: Friday, Dec. 6 vs. Catholic-Baton Rouge (Louisiana), time TBA

16. Owasso, Oklahoma (12-0)

Next: Friday, Dec. 6 vs. Jenks (Oklahoma), 8 p.m. ET

17. Dutch Fork, Irmo, South Carolina (13-0-1)

Result: Won 45-20 vs. Carolina Forest (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina)

Next: Saturday, Dec. 7 vs. Dorman (Roebuck, South Carolina), 12 p.m. ET

18. Lowndes, Valdosta, Georgia (13-0)

Result: Won 28-20 vs. Grayson (Loganville, Georgia)

Takeaway: After a late muffed punt, it took a goal-line stand in the final minute for Lowndes to secure the win over Grayson. But, after the Vikings stopped the Rams at the one-yard line with a minute left, all that was left was avoiding a touchback and running out the clock. Lowndes’ defense had been best on the goal line all game: Earlier, T.J. Quinn forced a fumble at the three-yard line and Josh Brown returned it to the house to give Lowndes a 14-0 lead. After Grayson cut the lead to 14-13, a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns lifted the Vikings just far enough ahead for the defense to take care of the rest.

Next: Friday, Dec. 6 vs. North Gwinnett (Suwanee, Geogia), 8 p.m. ET

19. Corner Canyon, Draper, Utah (14-0)

Next: Season Complete. Eligible for GEICO State Champions Bowl Series, Dec. 20-21

20. Armwood, Seffner, Florida (12-2)

Next: Lost 38-27 vs. Edgewater (Orlando, Florida)

Takeaway: Edgewater’s defense and special teams came prepared. The Eagles had three interceptions — two of them by Tommi Hill — a fumble recovery, and two blocked field goals, one of them for touchdown, according to Edgewater’s website and Chris Hays of the Orlando Sentinel. Armwood, coming off a win over then-No. 10 Lakeland, wasn’t able to match up with Edgewater and running back Isaiah Connelly, who had a pair of touchdowns himself.

Next: Season Complete

21. McEachern, Powder Springs, Georgia (12-1)

Result: Lost 32-13 vs. North Gwinnett (Suwanee, Geogia)

Takeaway: North Gwinnett running back Devin Crosby led the way offensively with 31 carries for 178 yards and three touchdowns, according to MDJOnline. One defense, the Bulldogs limited McEachern quarterback Carlos Del Rio-Wilson to 98 passing yards on 10-for-22 passing and 62 rushing yards on 19 carries, according to AJC, and the Indians had their lowest scoring output of the season. North Gwinnett led 22-0 in the third quarter and McEachern could not mount any sort of comeback.

Next: Season Complete

22. St. Joseph’s Prep, Philadelphia (11-2)

Results: Won 31-24 (OT) vs. Central Catholic (Pittsburgh)

Takeaway: St. Joseph’s Prep survived. Barely. The Hawks allowed two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, relinquishing a seven-point lead, and getting stuck on a fourth-and-10 from the 12-yard line with less than 30 seconds left in the game. St. Joseph’s Prep, as the team so often does, went to Marvin Harrison Jr. The four-star wide receiver caught it in the very back of the end zone to send it to overtime, where the Hawks scored on the first possession and then Keenan Nelson Jr. intercepted Central Catholic. They’re on to the championship. Recap and Harrison’s TD video >>>

Next: Saturday, Dec. 7 vs. Central Dauphin (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania), 7 p.m.

23. East St. Louis, Illinois (14-0)

Result: Won 43-21 vs. Prairie Ridge (Crystal Lake, Illinois)

Next: Class 6A state champion. Season Complete

24. Saguaro, Scottsdale, Arizona (11-1)

Next: Saturday, Dec. 7 vs. No. 10 Chandler (Arizona), 6 p.m. ET

25. Muskego, Wisconsin (14-0)

Next: Division 1 state champion. Season Complete
