  1. Orchard Lake St. Mary’s (4-0): St. Mary’s had a breather (49-14 over U-D Jesuit) and now the Eaglets face the defending Division 2 champs Warren De La Salle (3-1) on the red carpet.
  2. Detroit Cass Tech (4-0), A: The Technicians have outscored their opponents 178-34. On Saturday Cass Tech plays at Detroit King in what is the city’s most heated rivalry.
  3. Detroit King (4-0), A: The Crusaders defeated Detroit Denby, 41-0, and now face its third tough opponent of the season, Cass Tech, on Saturday.
  4. Saline (4-0), A: The Hornets just keep rolling along. Temperance Bedford (43-0) proved to be no match. Next is Ann Arbor Huron (0-4).
  5. Canton (4-0), A: As expected the Chiefs blew past Wayne Memorial (0-4), 57-0. It should be more of the same this week when they host Westland John Glenn (0-4)   
  6. East Kentwood (4-0), A: Holland West Ottawa (35-7) proved to be no match for the Falcons. And despite its record, Jenison (2-2) shouldn’t pose much of a hurdle this week either.   
  7. Walled Lake Western (4-0), A: Western defeated White Lake Lakeland, 42-14, and now face an inconsistent Waterford Mott team (2-2). Mott is averaging 37.5 points but has difficulty stopping teams from scoring.
  8. Detroit Catholic Central (3-1), A: No more cupcakes left on the table for the Shamrocks. Brother Rice comes calling in the annual Boys Bowl on Sunday.
  9. West Bloomfield (4-0), A: West Bloomfield led Troy Athens 14-9 at halftime before pulling away for a 28-17 victory. Lake Orion (2-2) is next and the Dragons have given up just three points in their last two games.
  10. Muskegon (3-1), A:  Muskegon’s offense got going last week (56-28 over East Grand Rapids). The Big Reds host Grand Rapids Kenowa Hills (2-2) on Friday.
  11. Lowell (3-1), A: The Red Arrows had a surprisingly easy time last week (56-0 over Muskegon Reeths-Puffer) and now go to Grand Haven (2-2). Lowell is averaging 49 points a game.
  12. Muskegon Mona Shores (4-0), A: The Sailors continued their stout defensive work last week (30-7 over Caledonia). This week they host Zeeland East (3-1), which lost to Grand Rapids Christian, 24-20, last week.
  13. Warren Mott (4-0), A: Mott got the breather (35-0 over St. Clair Shores Lakeview) it was looking for last week. On Friday it travels to Clinton Township Chippewa Valley in what could be a high-scoring affair
  14. Macomb Dakota (3-1), A: Dakota defeated Harrison Township L’Anse Creuse (1-3), 35-0, last week and now moves into the meat of its schedule beginning with Utica Eisenhower (3-1) on Friday.
  15. Clinton Township Chippewa Valley (3-1), A: The Big Reds led Warren Cousino 21-0 before cruising to a 49-27 victory. The surprise team (Warren Mott) in Macomb County is next.
  16. Midland (4-0), A: After a rough-and-tumble game last week (21-14 over Mount Pleasant) the Chemics should have a much easier time with Bay City Western (1-3).
  17. Warren De La Salle (3-1): A: The Pilots ran past Birmingham Brother Rice (30-6) on Saturday and now go to St. Mary’s on Friday for what could be one of the best games of the season.
  18. Romeo (4-0), A: The Bulldogs trounced Utica Ford (49-7) last week and has Harrison Township L’Anse Creuse (1-3) next before facing Macomb Dakota.
  19. Lapeer (4-0), A: The Lightning have given up just 15 points after pasting Saginaw Heritage 49-0. Mount Pleasant (3-1) is next and Lapeer will play the Oilers at home on Friday.
  20. Howell (4-0), A: Howell barely slipped Pinckney (0-4), 28-23, last week and now faces Grand Blanc (3-1) In a key KLAA West Division game.  
  21. Zeeland West (4-0), B: Comstock Park (3-1) gave West quite a game before losing 38-28 on Friday. West opens the OK Green Division season against Hamilton (1-3) on Friday.
  22. Brighton (4-0), A: The Bulldogs looked good last week in downing Grand Blanc (3-1), 35-12. Now they have consecutive road games beginning with Milford (0-4) this week.
  23. Portage Central (4-0), A: The Mustangs defeated an improved Benton Harbor team, 28-0, last Friday and host Richland Gull Lake (2-2) this week. Central will likely be 8-0 when it faces St. Joseph (3-1) in the regular season finale.
  24. Farmington Hills Harrison (3-1), A: The Hawks beat Birmingham Seaholm for their third straight win. It’s OAA White Division showdown time this Friday at home against Southfield (3-1).
  25. Mount Pleasant (3-1), A: The Oilers lost a tough one last week (21-14 to Midland). They’ll have to pick themselves up quickly with Lapeer (4-0) on tap this week.
