South Summit and Stansbury make Top 25 debuts
The high school football season in Utah is past the midpoint. And while there hasn’t been any movement among the state’s top four teams, fewer than 10 teams can now say they haven’t lost a game yet.
Among those undefeated teams is South Summit, which had a loss record last season. He is making his Powers Ranking debut this week, with Stansbury.
But outside of the teams that haven’t lost yet, there’s a blockage among most of the top 25, and it doesn’t look any easier to hold onto a spot.
