NEW Top 100 features seven head-to-head match-ups this week

top 100

Last week was the first time all season that we didn’t have at least one head-to-head match-up within the Top 100, but this week, it will be a different story with seven games featuring Top 100 vs. Top 100. And, four of the games are rematches from the regular season.

Top 100 Scoreboard November 9-11

In South Florida, No. 13 Northwestern and No. 14 Miami Central will play for the second time this year.  The two Miami heavyweights will square-off in the second round of the 6A playoffs.  Northwestern captured the regular season district game 21-7.  The winner will get the winner of the game between No. 68 Carol City and Mainland.  Carol City is the defending 6A champs.

Also in Florida, No. 82 Viera will square-off with No. 85 Plant in the 7A second round. The 7A bracket also includes No. 34 St. Thomas Aquinas and No. 81 Venice.  10-time state champ St. Thomas Aquinas, the three-time defending 7A champs wouldn’t meet Venice until the state semifinals and Plant in the finals.  Last year, STA beat Plant 45-6 in the title game.

In Utah, No. 17 Bingham will faces No. 31 East for the state’s first-ever 6A title.  Bingham is the defending 5A champ, while East won the last two 4A titles.  The game will be a rematch between the two. On August 25, Bingham beat the Leopards 48-17.

The third rematch will be in Washington, D.C. where No. 22 St. John’s College High School (Washington, D.C.) will take-on No. 91 Gonzaga (Washington, D.C.) for the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship. St. John’s beat the Eagles two weeks ago 32-14.  Gonzaga moves back into the Top 100 this week after beating former No. 81 Good Counsel in the WCAC semis on Saturday. Good Counsel had beaten the Eagles during the regular season.

The final rematch will be in the Illinois 8A semifinals where defending state champ Maine South, ranked No. 77 in the Top 100, plays No. 72 Lincoln-Way East.  Back on September 1, the Griffins beat Maine South 28-26, giving the Hawks their only loss of the year.

In Hawaii, No. 73 Kahuku will battle No. 76 Saint Louis for the Open Division state title for the third straight year.  Saint Louis is the defending state champ with Kahuku winning the title in 2015.

In Alabama, No. 43 Hewitt-Trussville, which moves up nine spots from last week in the latest rankings created with our proprietary algorithm, will take-on defending 7A champ Hoover, which is No. 86 in the new Top 100, in the state quarterfinals.  The winner will get the winner of No. 79 Thompson and Mountain Brook in the semis.

Aside from Gonzaga re-entering the rankings, Winton Woods from Ohio breaks into the Top 100 at No. 98.
