plenty of movement throughout the rankings of the top teams. There were several high-profile

matchups throughout the different classes, especially in Class 1A and Class 3A. While it was only

week 3, these matchups were a great indicator for how the rest of the season could play out.

Here’s a quick rundown of the best team performances and what the featured teams have left

in front of them.
