Oak Park River ForestThere will definitely we some changes when we release our new High School Football America Top 25 on Sunday.

This week’s slate of games features three match-ups within the Top 25 – #18 Paramus Catholic (New Jersey) at #2 Don Bosco Prep (New Jersey), #13 Mater Dei (California) at #7 St. John Bosco (California) and #24 Carmel (Indiana) at #20 Warren Central (Indiana).

The Top 25 action begins tonight with two games involving nationally-ranked teams –  Bell (Texas) at #17 Euless Trinity (Texas) and Nimitz (Texas) at #22 Skyline (Texas).

Other interesting match-ups involving Top 25 team:

Friday night in Florida, #3 Booker T. Washington will battle Northwestern (4-1). Until last week’s loss to Norland, the Bulls looked like they would enter the contest with an undefeated record.  Next week, Northwestern will take-on #8 Miami Central in a 6A-District 16 match-up.

In Georgia, #15 Colquitt County and Lee County will square-off Friday night in a battle of 6-0 teams in AAAAAA Region 1. All six teams in the region finished non-league play with perfect 5-0 records, making the region the fifth best league in our Best Leagues rankings that we released Wednesday.

In Ohio, #23 La Salle can clinch a piece of the Greater Catholic League South title with a win over St. Xavier (4-2).
