Lincoln Southwest's Jacob Hohl (89) has the ball come back to him on a blocked kick Friday at Seacrest Field.

School (Record) | Pvs. | This week

1. Bellevue West (2-0) | 1 | Papilllion-LV South

2. Millard South (2-0) | 2 | Millard North

3. Millard West (2-0) | 5 | at Omaha North

4. Omaha Westside (2-0) | 3 | at Lincoln Southeast

9. Grand Island (2-0) | 9 | at Papillion-LV

10. Omaha North (1-1) | 10 | Millard West

Contenders: Kearney, Lincoln East, Lincoln Southwest, Papillion-La Vista South, Omaha Central.

Comments: Everything went according to form last week, but Millard West slips past Omaha Westside into No. 3 after an impressive 17-point win over defending state champion Omaha Burke, snapping the Bulldogs’ 14-game winning streak.

Class B

School (Record) | Pvs. | This week

1. Omaha Skutt (2-0) | 1 | Blair

2. Scottsbluff (2-0) | 2 | at Northwest

3. Omaha Roncalli (1-1) | 3 | at Waverly

4. Waverly (2-0) | 4 | Omaha Roncalli

5. Norris (2-0) | 6 | at Bennington

6. York (2-0) | 7 | at McCook

7. Hastings (1-1) | 5 | at Alliance

8. Northwest (2-0) | - | Scottsbluff

9. Seward (1-1) | 9 | at Lexington

10. Mt. Michael (2-0) | 10 | Omaha Concordia

Contenders: McCook, Blair, Bennington, Crete.

Comments: Scottsbluff’s 35-point win at Hastings solidifies the Bearcats’ No. 2 ranking and sends the Tigers tumbling two spots. Thanks to 131 yards rushing and another 121 passing from Tyson Gordon, Skutt survived against rival Roncalli as Jack Dotzler’s 294 yards passing and four TDs put a scare into the SkyHawks. Kaden Glynn, an all-state receiver at Johnson-Brock last year as a sophomore, has joined the Beatrice football team after originally deciding to focus on basketball when he transferred earlier this fall.

Class C-1

School (Record) | Pvs. | This week

1. Pierce (2-0) | 1 | at Ord

2. Wahoo (2-0) | 2 | Aurora

8. Columbus Scotus (2-0) | 9 | at West Pt.-Beemer

9. Columbus Lakeview (2-0) | 10 | Boone Central

10. Ogallala (2-0) | - | Broken Bow

Contenders: Gothenburg, Kearney Catholic, Central City, Fairbury, Boys Town, Chadron.

Comments: The only change is Kearney Catholic dropping out after a 35-point loss to Aurora, allowing Ogallala to enter. Ogallala has one of the top quarterbacks in the state regardless of class in Clayton Murphy who has completed 70% of his passes for 578 yards and seven TDs in two games.

Comments: Sutton’s shutout over Wilber-Clatonia, Oakland-Craig’s surprising 37-point blowout over Hartington Cedar Catholic and Aquinas’ hard-fought victory against Norfolk Catholic account for this week’s changes. Norfolk Catholic has No. 3 St. Paul and No. 1 BRLD the next two weeks.
