Several decisive victories highlighted weekend action for teams ranked in the Xcellent 25 National Football Rankings presented by the Army National Guard.
Allen, the nation's No. 3-ranked team, dominated former No. 9 Coppell 31-0 in a showdown of two Top 10-ranked teams. Tay Evans, who normally stars at linebacker, rushed for two touchdowns in the victory.
In one of the weekend's more exciting games, John Curtis used a late touchdown to slip past previous No. 5 Edna Karr in a game that spotlighted Louisiana's top two teams.
But the most stunning victory of the weekend belongs to St. Joseph Regional. Facing a Bergen Catholic squad that hung tough with John Curtis and Bishop Gorman, St. Joseph Regional looked flawless, hammering Bergen Catholic 49-6.
