Week 8

Buford (Ga.) was the top performer heading into the latest USA TODAY Sports Super 25, with the Wolves topping No. 21 Mill Creek (Ga.) 39-27. The Hawks’ loss created a slide in the bottom half of the rankings, where Archbishop Moeller’s (Ohio) close defeat to St. Edward (Ohio) also helped open the door.

With one-loss Bergen Catholic (N.J.) falling outside the top 25 as well, three new teams appear this week, each looking to the top where Mater Dei (Calif.) continues its stronghold on the No. 1 spot.
