Southern California Top 25 – Week 3

Southern California Top 25

Los Al’s upset of Long Beach Poly brings the Griffins into the High School Football America Southern California Top 25 this week at No. 19, which shook-up the bottom of the rankings created by our proprietary algorithm.

The Los Al victory also brought Vista Murrieta into this week’s rankings, because the Broncos own a 38-35 victory over the Griffins. This sort of movement in the rankings is typical at this point in the season as the algorithm starts to do its job of assessing on-field performance.

Long Beach Poly drops from No. 11 to No. 20. This week, the Jackrabbits face No. 13 Serra (Gardena). Last week, Cathedral Catholic beat the Cavs.

The other head-to-head matchups in the SoCal Top 25 this week are:

No. 3 Corona Centennial vs. No. 21 Narbonne

No. 6 Oaks Christian vs. No. 23 Alemany

No. 17 Norco vs. No. 18 Vista Murrieta
