Super 25 football rankings for Week 11: Hersey joins after playoff win

The Super 25 held strong in the opening week of the state playoffs. Bolingbrook was the only team to lose and fall out of the rankings. The Raiders’ 38-21 loss to Waubonsie Valley opened the door for Hersey (9-1) to make its Super 25 debut.

A close No. 26 in the rankings is Antioch (10-0), which loses out to Hersey due to the fact that the Huskies rolled over Lincoln Way-Central 52-13 in a dominant fashion in Class 7A.

The top three teams outpaced their opponents in a big way, with Lincoln Way-East, Batavia and Oswego each scoring 49 points in their respective games to blow out their first-round opponents and keep open a compelling conversation for the best team in the area.

Who sets the tone in the second round of the playoffs? Does the Super 25 shake up heading into the quarterfinals? Stay tuned to Sun Times Game Week. Here’s the full list entering Week 11 of the 2018 season.

    Will need to Run K.Davis more, between the Offensive Tackles to Win State!!! [ Ball Control will be – a must – against – some!!! of the upcoming opponents ]

    Yea, I know their records are exceptional, but after watching all five teams it’s hard to believe both Glenbard East and Wheaton South are ranked higher than Oak Park or either of the two remaining DVC teams. Other than that it’s one of the better list’s she’s had this season.

    This weekend will be a fun one. OPRF, WVHS, NCHS, WWSHS and GEHS all have an opportunity to earn a top 25 ranking. We’ll see how things shake out and then get to complain about Beth’s rankings next week.
