Last weekend’s losses by Euless Trinity (Texas) and South Panola (Mississippi) have caused plenty of shifts in this week’s National Top 25 Media Compilation Poll.

The biggest mover this week is Colerain (Ohio), which moves from #21 to #14.  The seven place jump is impressive considering that the Cardinals aren’t ranked in the USA TODAY Super 25.

After dropping-out of the compilation media poll last week, St. Thomas Aquinas jumps back in at #19.  Aside from the Raiders, new to the poll this week — Cibolo Steele (Texas) at #24 and Lone Peak (Utah) and Loyola (Illinois) are in a tie at #25.

Katy (Texas), which has won five straight games by shutout, climbs from #8 to 6 this week.

Dropping-out this week, aside from Euless Trinity and South Panola, is Gonzaga (Washington, DC).

In addition to our poll, which is based on our proprietary algorithm, we include USA Today’s Super 25, MaxPreps’ Xcellent 25, NationalHSFootball.com’s HSFB 100 and PrepNation.com’s National Prep Poll.

The poll awards points on the basis of ranking.  For example, the #1 team receives 25 points, the #2 team receives 24 points and so forth.

Our media compilation poll is released every Wednesday.
