Ohio playoff games shake-up the Top 100

top 100

It’s has been a bad couple of weeks for all of the saints in Ohio, meaning St. Edward, St. Igantius and St. Xavier.  All three of the powerhouse are now officially into their off-seasons before the semifinal round of the playoffs.

No. 10 St. Igantius lost 23-21 to Mentor in the state Division I quarterfinals on friday in rematch of their regular season dual won by St. Igantius 41-31 in September.  Thanks to its win over the Wildcats and its defeat of St. Edward last week, Mentor soars into the new High School Football America Top 100 national rankings at No. 49 this week.

Defending Division I champ St. X also played a rematch game over the weekend against Colerain.  St. X beat Colerain 20-17 in overtime in September, but Friday night it was the Cardinals who came out on-top with a 21-14 win to advance to the state semis and also break into the national rankings at No. 91.  This week, Colerain will try to advance to the state title game when it faces No. 48 Pickerington Central.

Colerain and Mentor are two of six new teams in the rankings.  Also new to the rankings created with our proprietary algorithm are: North Gwinnett (Georgia) at No. 92 after knocking-off former No. 26 Grayson (Georgia); Maryville (Tennessee) at No. 95; Chaminade-Madonna (Florida) at No. 96; and McGill-Toolen (Alabama) at No. 97.

The Colerain-Pickerington Central game is one of a eleven head-to-head match-ups in the Top 100 this coming week.
