Where the Top 25 plays

national top 50

After lots of changes in last week’s High School Football America Top 25, we could have that on back-to-back weeks, depending on what happens with several big games within the Top 50 this week.

The biggest games that will shape the next set of rankings, that are created with our proprietary algorithm, are in Georgia where #5 Grayson plays #10 Roswell for the Georgia Class AAAAAAA state championship and #4 Allen playing #29 The Woodlands in the Texas Class 6A Division I state semis.  Another big game will be in Hershey, Pennsylvania where #12 St. Joseph’s Prep plays #34 Pittsburgh Central Catholic for the state’s 6A title.
