The top three teams in the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 National Football Rankings presented by the Army National Guard all performed very well this week, solidifying their spots -- at least for now.
Washington and Allen, the nation's top two teams, each enjoyed blowouts while No. 3 Aquinas notched one of the biggest wins of the year so far, a 27-13 road victory over John Curtis that might not even have been as close as the score indicates.
No. 4 St. John Bosco defeated Chandler, coming from behind to do so. However, star quarterback Josh Rosen left the game due to injury and did not return.
Karr, DeSoto and North Gwinnett all notched big victories as well.MaxPreps Xcellent 25 National Football Rankings presented by the Army National Guard1. (1) Washington (Miami), 3-0
