Ashland-Greenwood vs. Wahoo, 10.9

Wahoo's Colin Ludvik (4) runs the ball against Ashland-Greenwood in the second quarter on Oct. 9, 2020, in Wahoo. 

Class A

School (Record) | Pvs. | This week

1. Bellevue West (4-0) | 1 | Columbus

2. Omaha Westside (7-0) | 2 | St. Thomas Aquinas

3. Millard South (5-1) | 3 | North Star

4. Elkhorn South (6-1) | 4 | Kearney

5. Lincoln Southeast (7-0) | 5 | Gretna

6. Creighton Prep (4-2) | 6 | Papio South

7. Gretna (6-1)| 7 | at L. Southeast

8. Lincoln East (5-2) | 8 | vs. L. Northeast

9. Millard West (1-5) | 9 | at North Platte

10. Millard North (2-4) | 10 | at Fremont

Contenders: Kearney, North Platte, Fremont, Grand Island, Columbus.

Comments: Gretna is not penalized for its first loss of the season against Elkhorn South. Millard North hangs on to the No. 10 spot after a double-overtime triumph over Grand Island. Westside steps outside the state to host St. Thomas Aquinas from Overland Park, Kansas, in a replacement game Friday. St. Thomas Aquinas (4-2), which lost to Kansas 6A No. 1 Lawrence this past Friday, was rated No. 1 in Kansas 5A last week. Gretna at Southeast on Thursday is the premier in-state game in Class A during the last week of the regular season.

Seeding committee announced: The 24-team Class A playoff field will be seeded Saturday morning by a committee consisting of five Class A athletic directors — JJ Toczek of Southeast, Ben Ries of Norfolk, Jason Ryan of Papillion-La Vista, Dan Schinzel of Creighton Prep and Jordan Cudney of North Platte. Class A coaches have been asked to rank the teams No. 1 through 24 after Friday’s games. Other seeding considerations besides the coaches’ votes include wild card points, common opponents, head-to-head competition and replacement game results.

Class B

School (Record) | Pvs. | This week

1. Omaha Skutt (5-2) | 2 | at Mount Michael

2. Bennington (6-1) | 3 | Omaha Roncalli

3. Norris (6-1) | 4 | at Lincoln Pius X

4. Elkhorn (5-2) | 5 | Elkhorn North

5. Waverly (5-2) | 6 | at Crete

6. Aurora (5-2) | 8 | Northwest

7. Hastings (6-1) | 1 | Bye

8. Plattsmouth (5-2) | 7 | Beatrice

9. McCook (4-2) | 9 | Scottsbluff

10. Scottsbluff (4-3) | 10 | at McCook

Contenders: Northwest, Blair, Ralston.

Comments: Aurora’s impressive road win at previous No. 1 Hastings shakes up the order. Norris’ road encounter at Class A rival Lincoln Pius X is the week’s most intriguing game.

Class C-1

School (Record) | Pvs. | This week

1. Pierce (6-0) | 2 | Battle Creek

2. St. Paul (6-1) | 4 | at Adams Central

3. Ashland-Greenwood (7-0) | 5 | Louisville

6. Auburn (6-1) | 8 | at Fairbury

7. Wahoo (4-2) | 3 | at Raymond Central

8. Cozad (6-1) | 7 | Broken Bow

9. Lincoln Christian (6-1) | 9 | at Milford

10. Wayne (5-2) | 10 | at O’Neill

Contenders: Logan View/SS, Battle Creek, Mitchell, Gothenburg, West Point-Beemer.

Comments: Kearney Catholic’s win over former No. 1 Adams Central and Ashland-Greenwood’s convincing win over defending state champion Wahoo account for this week’s changes. Auburn benefits from a one-point loss to A-G in week 1.

Class C-2

School (Record) | Pvs. | This week

1. Oakland-Craig (7-0) | 1 | Arch. Bergan

2. Ord (7-0) |2 | at Centura

10. Grand Island CC (4-3) | 10 | at Twin River

Contenders: Bishop Neumann, Centennial, Crofton, North Platte St. Pat’s, Crofton, Bridgeport.

Comments: Hartington Cedar Catholic slips slightly for a 38-point loss at No. 1 Oakland-Craig. The Bergan at Oakland-Craig matchup could be a prelude to a November showdown in the playoffs. Ord picked up a 35-16 win over Sutton in a replacement game Friday.

Contenders: Laurel-Concord-Coleridge, Elm Creek, Weeping Water, Nebraska Christian, Humphrye/LHF, Lourdes CC.

Comments: Howells-Dodge re-enters after Laurel-C-C’s loss to Wakefield. L-C-C has a chance to move back into the top 10 when it plays at No. 9 Lutheran High Northeast to close out the regular season.

1. BDS (6-0) | 1 | at Lawrence-Nelson

9. St. Mary’s (7-0) | 9 | at Boyd County

10. Allen (5-0) | - | at Emerson-Hubbard

Contenders: Creighton, Loomis, Medicine Valley, Wynot, Garden County, Osmond, Mullen.

Comments: While BDS and Falls City Sacred Heart were idle Friday night after COVID-19 issues involving their opponents, Central Valley picked up a replacement game at Fremont Mills, Iowa, and posted a 25-16 victory over the No. 5 team in Iowa eight-man. Medicine Valley’s loss to Loomis allows undefeated Allen to enter.
