Week 3

Week 3

California’s top teams left little doubt as to why each is worthy of a No. 1 nod in the latest USA TODAY Sports Super 25, with Mater Dei and St. John Bosco both shutting out the opponent while putting up a collective 84 points last Friday. 

Will Mater Dei stay at the top? Each week, there is a stronger case for the boys from Bellflower.

The rest of the top 10 remained stable, highlighted by Miami Central coming off its bye with an impressive win and Bergen Catholic (N.J.) continuing to build momentum. However, Nevada power Bishop Gorman took an opportunity in Week 3 to leapfrog the top Texas teams after it dismantled perennial in-state juggernaut Hamilton.

And outside looking in, upsets shaped the bottom half of the rankings as Jesuit (Fla.) and East St. Louis (Ill.) suffered defeats, opening the door for two new teams.
