Corner Canyon, Skyridge, American Fork still at the top after week 6
South Summit and Stansbury make their top 25 debuts of the season
Utah high school football season has passed halftime. And while there was no movement within the state’s top four teams, now fewer than 10 teams can say they haven’t lost a game.
Among those undefeated teams is South Summit, which posted a record loss last season. It makes its debut in the power rankings this week alongside Stansbury.
But aside from the teams that haven’t lost yet, there’s a jam among most of the top 25 and it doesn’t get any easier to hold onto a spot.
