Week 3: 2018 Class A football power rankings

September 9, 2018

We're proud to present our week three football power rankings, brought to you by PRIME Roofing:

 

10. Lincoln High (NR, 1-2)

After one of the most gruesome stretches a team could ask for (Bellevue West, Grand Island, and Omaha Creighton Prep), the Links escape week three with a 1-2 record. Perhaps the most unsuspected win, Lincoln High beat then-top-ranked Creighton Prep 42-21.

 

9. Elkhorn South (9, 3-0)

The Storm have yet to see another top ten team, but have managed to outweigh opponents 100-32 — highlighted by a 56-6 win over Lincoln North Star this week.

 

8. Omaha North (4, 1-2)

The Vikings have slipped to number eight following a 28-14 loss against Millard West. Their other quality loss was against Creighton Prep in week one.

 

7. Omaha Westside (7, 3-0)

Brett Froendt and the Warriors remained perfect on the year with a 29-14 win over Lincoln Southeast, despite a 14-point scare in the third quarter.

 

6. Millard West (8, 2-1)

The Wildcats bounced back from a 21-point week two loss to Omaha Burke with a 28-14 win over Omaha North on Thursday.

 

5. Millard South (6, 3-0)

Millard South breezed past cross-town rival Millard North on Friday night by a score of 35-10. Their season remains spotless.

 

4. Omaha Creighton Prep (1, 2-1)

Reid Burke’s Junior Jays suffered their first loss of the season on Friday night against Lincoln High. The 42-21 defeat drops Prep to 2-1 on the season.

 

3. Grand Island (5, 3-0)

The Islanders cashed in a 42-14 week three victory against Papillion-La Vista. They have yet to win within even close to a single digit margin, and it might stay that way for a few more weeks.

 

2. Bellevue West (3, 3-0)

The “Playmakers in Purple” took on previously-undefeated Papillion-La Vista South in a battle for Sarpy County. They came out with a dominant 51-16 win to stay perfect on the season.

 

1. Omaha Burke (2, 3-0)

The Bulldogs handled Omaha Central in a 35-7 fashion to slide them into the number one spot — the first time this season that Burke has been number one in our rankings.

 

Others receiving votes: Lincoln Pius X, Lincoln Southwest, Elkhorn, Kearney
