2017 WesternPAFootball.net Rankings, Week 10

Written by: on Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

 

Wow, week 10 is here and so are the playoffs!  We had a few changes this week, the biggest being 5A #1 Penn Trafford dropping to #4 after losing to our preseason favorite McKeesport. Gateway assumes the top spot there jumping an idle Grove City with their win over Franklin Regional (we don’t reward teams that were off. Not your fault Eagles, you can still move up on the field).

In 6A NA and State College swapped spots after a loss to #1 PR. 4A saw Johnstown drop and Bellefonte enter the top 5. Johnstown went down hard last week.

In 3A the Dragons of Central slide back in to the HM column. 2A, no changes there. HM Berlin lost to #3 Ligonier but we’ll hold them there.

In 1A we had a big change, Clairton re-enters the fray at #5 with their win over #2 Jeannette. The Jawhawks took a tumble and the Bears took a spot in the top ten once occupied by Portage.

No sense in highlighting games here, they’re ALL big once you hit the playoffs!
