Southern California High School Football Top 25 – Week 5

Southern California Top 25

We’re at the halfway point in the regular season in Southern California, but there’s been no change in the top two teams in the Southern California Top 25. Mater Dei and St. John Bosco remain No. 1 and No. 2 in the region and No. 1 and No. 4 in the nation.

Mater Dei’s No. 1 ranking will be tested this week when the Monarchs host IMG Academy (Florida), ranked No. 5 in our national rankings.

The other matchup that will affect next week’s rankings is the showdown between No. 4 Mission Viejo and No. 5 Orange Lutheran.
