#1 Bishop Gorman vs. #10 St. Thomas Aquinas and #4 DeMatha vs. #9 St. John’s highlight this weekend’s Top 25 schedule

Top 25

Seven Top 25 teams are on their bye week, but there are two huge games this week that will shape the national championship chase.

In Nevada on Friday, #1 Bishop Gorman will take-on #10 St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida).  Gorman is currently riding a 44-game win streak, which is the fourth longest active win streak in the nation.  STA began the season ranked #1 by USA TODAY, MaxPreps and Prepnation.com in their preseason polls.  High School Football America had the Raiders at #7 in our preseason Top 25.

In Maryland, #4 DeMatha, winner of three straight Washington Catholic Athletic Conference titles, will host #9 St. John’s College High School (Washington, D.C.).  DeMatha beat SJC twice last year.  Friday night’s game will mark the fifth time in its first six games that St. John’s is playing a team that began the season in the High School Football America Top 25.

Another game that shouldn’t be overlooked is in New Jersey on Saturday when #24 St. Joseph Regional (Montvale) takes-on #27 Bergen Catholic.
