Statewide Rankings – Sept. 15, 2014
|1||Bingham||4-1||Should have no problem with Granger this week, which will allow the coaching staff to rest some ailing starters for Brighton showdown in two weeks.|
|2||Timpview||5-0||Has won every game by at least two touchdowns this year, a trend that should continue throughout Region 8 play.|
|3||Brighton||4-0||This week's game against Hunter serves as a mere warm-up for the main course next week against visiting Bingham.|
|4||Jordan||4-1||Coming off big win in Colorado, Jordan faces its toughest test of the season against a very physical Herriman team.|
|5||Corner Canyon||5-0||After what should be an easy win over Olympus this week, the surging Chargers have four straight road games.|
|6||Woods Cross||5-0||This program has had some big wins the past few years, but none were bigger than beating East in the region opener last week.|
|7||American Fork||4-1||Vaults six places up the Top 25 after allowing just one offensive touchdown to a very good Riverton team.|
|8||Herriman||4-1||Manhandled Lone Peak last week, but will need to be even better this week to compete with a Jordan team firing on all cylinders offensively.|
|9||Pleasant Grove||4-1||Eventually the Vikings will need to play some defense otherwise they'll be the unlucky No. 5 seed this season.|
|10||Riverton||4-1||Opened region play with a big thud against American Fork, and needs to get things sorted out quickly with Lone Peak and Pleasant Grove the next two weeks.|
|11||Davis||3-2||The past two years the Davis-Syracuse winner has gone on to win the Region 1 title, which bodes well for the Darts after last week's victory.|
|12||Roy||5-0||Nearly let another lead slip away, but the Royals hung on for the solid road victory at Mountain Crest to start Region 5 1-0.|
|13||Syracuse||4-1||After three straight last-second victories to start the season, the Titans couldn't get anything going offensively in loss to Davis last week.|
|14||Logan||3-2||In two weeks since American Fork debacle, the Grizzly offense has found its groove just in time for this week's huge visit to Roy.|
|15||Desert Hills||5-0||Overwhelmed Cedar to open region with victory, and marquee showdown with Pine View looms in two weeks.|
|16||Highland||4-1||Coming off second straight dominant defensive performance, the Rams suddenly find themselves the slight favorite against rival East this week.|
|17||Bountiful||4-1||With showdown with Woods Cross looming in two weeks, the Braves can't get caught looking past a very good Layton team.|
|18||Sky View||4-1||Quietly proving it can win games with offense or defense this year, but first true region test comes in two weeks at Mountain Crest.|
|19||East||1-4||Losses have been against quality competition, but East needs to get things sorted out against Highland this week to be considered a real contender.|
|20||Lone Peak||2-3||Defense hung with Herriman just fine, but offense came up empty in two of three red zone trips.|
|21||Taylorsville||4-1||Coming off shutout victory over Olympus, if T-ville wants to be regarded as a top 5A program it must beat Alta this week.|
|22||Judge Memorial||4-1||It's too bad Judge wasn't in 3AA, because this defense could compete with anyone in 3AA, as evidenced by Week 1 win against Pine View.|
|23||Northridge||2-3||It's only Week 5, but this Friday's showdown with Syracuse is huge for playoff seeding implications and a possible home game.|
|24||Pine View||4-1||Since Week 1 loss to Judge, offense has been on fire, but road games against Dixie and Desert Hills next two weeks will determine region fate.|
|25||Mountain Crest||1-4||All three losses have been by three points, and if this young team every figures out how to close out games it could be pretty dangerous.|
