SBLive/Sports Illustrated Top 25 national high school football rankings (9/18/2023)

Bishop Gorman (Nevada) moves up to No. 2 in the country

There’s a shakeup in the top half of this week’s SBLive/Sports Illustrated Power 25 national high school football rankings as two top-10 teams — including former No. 2 St. John Bosco (California) — suffered losses on the road.

The biggest winner from the shakeup? Bishop Gorman, which completed a grueling front half of its schedule by routing its closest challenger to Nevada supremacy. The Gaels leapfrogged IMG Academy to move to No. 2, just behind No. 1 Mater Dei, which had the week off.

And welcome back, Kahuku (Hawaii), which bounced back from a 55-8 loss to Mater Dei by stunning St. John Bosco 30-23. The Red Raiders’ re-entry comes at the expense of Centennial of Corona, California. 

Walton (Georgia) and Sierra Canyon (California) are among the teams circling the field, ready to swoop in should anyone in the bottom half of the rankings fall this week. 

Here’s the complete breakdown of our Week 6 SBLive/SI Power 25 national high school football rankings.
