Video: Xcellent 25 High School Football RankingsLouisiana's University Lab only new team in Top 25 as little movement among top teams.
There wasn't a ton of movement in this week's Top 25 as University Lab (Baton Rouge, La.)
is the only new team to join the rankings after cruising to its 19th consecutive victory. The Cubs have won every game by at least 20 points through their first five games and beat a very good Zachary (La.) team 49-27 on Friday night. The defending Division II state champs are the clear favorites to repeat this season. See the video above for a complete look at this week's Xcellent 25 rankings presented by the Army National Guard.
