|Manatee (2-0) Bradenton, FL
Manatee dispatched Riverview, but this week's game against No. 24 Miami Central will be much tougher. Central is 1-1 against Top 10 teams this year and found its stride last week against Booker T. Washington.
Last: Def Riverview 49-8
Next: 9/14 vs No. 24 Miami Central
|Grayson (2-0) Loganville, GA
Grayson was off this week and will play Parkview this week. The Panthers were the IT team of the early '00s, but Parkview is a shade of its former self.
Next: 9/14 @ Parkview (1-1)
|Skyline (2-0) Dallas, TX
Skyline survived a battle with Arlington Martin, and they will be tested this week by a good Bowie team.
Last: Def Arlington Martin 37-34
Next: 9/14 @ Bowie (1-1)
|Trinity (3-0) Louisville, KY
Some of the luster of this week's match up was lost with St. Xavier's loss to Colerain, but Trinity knows better than to take St. Xavier lightly... especially coming off a loss.
Last: Def Elder 45-21
Next: 9/14 St. Xavier (OH) (2-1)
|Santa Margarita (3-0) Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
The Eagles steam rolled its latest victim, and Carson shouldn't prove much of a challenge as Santa Margarita gears up for the meat of its schedule.
Last: Def Trabuco Hills 55-0
Next: 9/14 Carson (0-3)
|John Curtis (2-0) River Ridge, LA
John Curtis had the most impressive showing of the weekend with a 33-3 thrashing of No. 13 Plant. Frankly, the game wasn't that close.
Last: Def No. 13 Plant (FL) 33-3
Next: 9/14 East St. John (0-1)
|Bellevue (2-0) Bellevue, WA
Bellevue took care of business not looking past a good Bothel team. Bellevue might not be challenged until the playoffs.
Last: Def Bothel 35-7
Next: 9/14 @ Sammamish (0-2)
|Bishop Gorman (2-0) Las Vegas, NV
Bishop Gorman was idle, but they'll get another stiff challenge from Bergen Catholic who is just outside the FOX Sports Next Top 50.
Next: 9/14 vs Bergen Catholic (N.J.) (1-0)
|Archbishop Moeller (3-0) Cincinnati, OH
Moeller exploded against Catholic Central of Michigan. This week begins its back to back games against St. Xavier. This week's against the less challenging Kentucky version with St. Xavier of Cincinnati looming next week.
Last: Def Catholic Central 61-33
Next: 9/14 @ St. Xavier (KY) (3-1)
|Lake Travis (2-0) Austin, TX
Lake Travis doesn't have the toughest regular season schedule, and predictably the Cavaliers blew out Canyon. Round Rock Westwood should be a better opponent, but that's a relative statement.
Last: Def Canyon 49-7
Next: 9/14 @ Round Rock Westwood (2-0)
|De La Salle (2-0) Concord, CA
Mullen had two weeks to prepare for De La Salle, but it's still De La Salle. The visitors from Colorado were no match for the Spartans. This might be the last time we see anyone within 21 points of De La Salle this season.
Last: Def No. 40 Mullen (CO) 30-13
Next: 9/14 St. Mary's (2-1)
|Byrnes (3-0) Duncan, SC
Northwestern was 3-0 going into the game against Byrnes and gave the Rebels a fight until the end. Byrnes will be a tougher team down the stretch after being tested by Northwestern.
Last: Def Northwestern 32-28
Next: 9/14 Clinton (1-2)
|Katy (2-0) Katy, TX
Katy controlled the game against Alief Taylor, but the Tigers will need to be on their toes against a solid Woodlands squad.
Last: Def Alief Taylor 23-9
Next: 9/15 @ The Woodlands (1-1)
|Vista Murrieta (2-0) Murrieta, CA
South (AK) came to Southern California having outscored its in state opponents 199-9. Vista Murrieta hung 49 on them by halftime. Redlands East Valley will be a much tougher game now that the Broncos have sent South back to the Last Great Frontier.
Last: 9/7 Def South (AK) 49-8
Next: 9/14 Redlands East Valley (1-1)
|St. Ignatius (3-0) Cleveland, OH
St. Ignatius has opened with a solid slate of teams, but the Wildcats should get a breather against Strong Vincent.
Last: Def Mentor 48-21
Next: 9/15 @ Strong Vincent (PA) (0-2)
|Allen (2-0) Allen
Allen brought Cedar Hill back to earth after the Longhorns were riding high with a Week 1 victory over Denton Guyer. Allen should roll over Richardson.
Last: Def No. 45 Cedar Hill 37-20
Next: 9/14 Richardson (1-1)
|Good Counsel (2-1) Olney, MD
Good Counsel has played one of the toughest schedules in the nation and each game the Falcons have played has been within a touchdown. This week Good Counsel can name its score against Woodson.
Last: Def St. Joseph 14-10
Next: 9/14 Woodson (0-2)
|Lincoln (1-0) Tallahassee, FL
After a late start to the season, Lincoln finally got on the field and won a slugfest with St. Paul. This week it's the Florida State University School who has gotten off to a quick start.
Last: Def St. Paul 14-13
Next: 9/14 @ Florida State Univ. (2-0)
|DeSoto (2-0) DeSoto, TX
DeSoto has been impressive in its early games, and the Eagles will need to be ready again for the game of the week in the state of Texas as No. 25 Euless Trinity visits.
Last: Def Jenks (OK) 46-27
Next: 9/15 No. 25 Euless Trinity
|University (3-0) Ft. Lauderdale
University ran a modified scrimmage against Archbishop Carroll, but the Suns will need to button up their chin straps against Cocoa, a team who started the season in the Top 50.
Last: Def Archbishop Carroll 69-0
Next: 9/14 @ Cocoa
|Mission Viejo (3-0) Mission Viejo, CA
Mission Viejo's light non-league schedule continues last week against Santiago, and continues this week against a bad La Quinta team.
Last: Def Santiago 42-17
Next: 9/14 @ La Quinta (0-3)
|Steele (2-0) Cibolo, Texas
Steele got a tougher test than expected against Judson. The Knights shouldn't have much trouble with Tivy.
Last: Def Judson 42-35
Next: 9/14 @ Tivy (1-1)
|Don Bosco Prep (0-1) Ramsey, NJ
Gilman had already played two teams in the Top 50 before Don Bosco had even kicked off. It showed. Don Bosco Prep was out of sorts against a good Gilman squad. The Ironmen better get some things figured out against St. Thomas Aquinas, or a new streak will be started on Saturday.
Last: Lost to Gilman 13-6
Next: 9/14 @ St. Thomas Aquinas (FL)(2-0)
|Miami Central (1-1) Miami, FL
Round two of the nation's toughest schedule goes to Miami Central. The Rockets open against three Top 10 teams. Central was blown out against Grayson, beat No. 8 Washington, and faces No. 1 Manatee this week. 2-1 against That schedule will put the Rockets in the Top 10.
Last: Def No. 8 Washington 37-26
Next: 9/14 @ No. 1 Manatee (2-0)
|Trinity (1-1) Euless, TX
An amazing test of character for the Trojans who lost a heartbreaker to Bellevue in Washington only to turn around and take down Oklahoma's top team. Now another top-matchup with DeSoto looms.
Last: Def No. 30 Tulsa Union 21-18
Next: 9/15 vs DeSoto (2-0)
|Butler (3-0) Matthews, NC
Butler continues to chew up and spit out opponents. Vance was 3-0 coming in and was supposed to be a good test for the Bulldogs...oops.
Last: Def Vance 48-6
Next: 9/14 @ Myers Park (1-2)
|Bolingbrook (3-0) Bolingbrook, IL
The Raiders are a team we'd like to see step out of state and play in one of these marquee cross sectional games. A Trip to Lincoln-Way East on 9/28 looms as Bolingbrook's only real test.
Last: Def Romeoville Joliet 54-6
Next: 9/15 @ Joliet West (1-1)
|McGill-Toolen (3-0) Mobile, AL
McGill-Toolen got a battle from Bryant and had to come from behind in the fourth quarter to pull out the victory.
Last: Def Bryant 16-14
Next: 9/14 Theodore (1-1)
|Washington (1-1) Miami, FL
After watching Miami Central get decimated in its first game by Grayson, much to the dismay of the Tornadoes, the most improvement is made from game one to game two. Cedar Hill is capable of beating Washington as well.
Last: Lost to No. 50 Miami Central
Next: 9/15 @ Cedar Hill (TX) (1-1)
|Maine South (3-0) Park Ridge, IL
Maine South should easily improve to 4-0 against Niles North.
Last: Def Deerfield 35-7

|Cass Tech (3-0) Detroit, MI
Michigan's top team rolled over Renaissance and should do the same to Cody.
Last: Def Renaissance 44-0
Next: 9/14 @ Cody (2-1)
|Dwyer (2-0) Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Jupiter hasn't scored a point on the season, and facing Dwyer wasn't the right place to try and get on the board for the first time.
Last: Def Jupiter 34-0
Next: 9/14 @ Seminole Ridge (0-1)
|Walton (2-0) Marietta, GA
Walton has had two tough games to start the season and should get another stiff test from North Cobb.
Next: 9/14 @ North Cobb (1-0)
|Skyline (2-0) Sammamish, WA
Skyline needs to shore up its defense, but there's nothing wrong with that offense powered by the nation's top college quarterback prospect Max Browne.
Last: Def Cottonwood (UT) 57-25
Next: 9/15 Couer d'Alene (3-0)
|North Allegheny (2-0) Wexford, PA
North Allegheny enjoyed its trip to Fox Chapel a little too much to the liking of its hosts. Seneca Valley should be a better match for the Tigers.
Last: Def Fox Chapel 48-7
Next: 9/14 Seneca Valley (2-0)
|Camden County (3-0) Kingsland, GA
Camden County is enjoying its stroll through its old stomping grounds, and the Wildcats could probably hang 100 on Beach. Big boy football is looming though as Camden County must travel to Valdosta in two weeks to open up its region play. Region 1-AAAAA is as tough as any in the nation.
Last: Def Johnson 55-0
Next: 9/14 Beach 0-3
|American Heritage (2-0) Delray Beach, FL
The Stallions were impressive in their win over No. 15 Armwood. Big running back Greg Bryant is a man amongst boys at the high school level. American Heritage gets Glades Central team this week that is down from previous years.
Last: Def Armwood 36-28
Next: 9/14 @ Glades Central (0-2)

Next: 9/14 Jackson-Olin (0-2)
|Colerain (3-0) Cincinnati, OH
A terrific road win for the Cardinals as they travel to St. Xavier and come away with the win. Even with an understandable letdown, Colerain should still blow out Princeton.
Last: Def No. 48 St. Xavier (OH) 31-28
Next: 9/14 Princeton (0-3)
|Union (1-1) Tulsa, OK
Union came off a close win against Jenks and lost a close one to No. 32 Euless Trinity. Broken Arrow is a good team that Union will need to rebound quickly to face.
Last: Lost to No. 32 Euless Trinity (TX) 21-18
Next: 9/14 Broken Arrow (1-1)
|Ensworth (4-0) Nashville, TN
Baylor should be a better test for Ensworth, but realistically, expect the Tigers to cruise.
Last: Def Raleigh-Egypt 47-0

Oscar Smith rebound nicely from its defeat against Byrnes, and the Tigers may not face another opponent capable of keeping the game within three scores.
Last: Def Great Bridge 56-0

Armwood ran into a hammer in American Heritage, but the Hawks have enough talent to run the table the rest of the way.
Last: Lost to American Hertiage 36-28
Next: 9/14 @ Tampa Bay Tech (2-0)
|Plant (1-1) Tampa, FL
Speaking of running into a hammer, Plant was hammered in all facets of the game in a trip to New Orleans to take on John Curtis. Plant should get back on track against Jefferson.
Last: Lost to No. 21 John Curtis 33-3
Next: 9/14 Jefferson (1-1)
|Carroll (1-1) Southlake, TX
After getting shellacked by Allen in the first week of the season, Midland was in for a long day against Carroll. The Dragons should be able to hang the first loss on Temple this week.
Last: Def Midland 63-3
Next: 9/14 Temple (2-0)
|Gilman (1-2) Baltimore, MD
Only Miami Central has a tougher first three games than Gilman. Gilman could be this year's Manatee, a team who lost its first two games only to win the rest of them.
Last: Def No. 6 Don Bosco 13-6
Next: 9/14 Charlotte Christian (2-2)
|Gateway (2-0) Monroeville, PA
The Gators have outscored their opponents 107-22 in its 2-0 start. While both are 2-0, it's Gateway who should emerge from its game with Kiski Area this week undefeated.
Last: Def Connellsiville (46-16)
