Here are the state rankings from the Post-Gazette and Harrisburg Patriot-News.

It's interesting that Harrisburg made some big changes this week, despite teams not losing. For example, in Class AAAA, Harrisburg jumped Gateway from No. 3 to No. 2 this week, and dropped North Penn from No. 2 to No. 3, even though North Penn crushed Hatboro-Horsham, 35-0.

In Class AA, West Catholic jumped from No. 5 to No. 2 in Harrisburg, while West Catholic stayed at No. 5 in the Post-Gazette. The biggest change came in Class A, where Clairton went from No. 5 to No. 1 in the Harrisburg poll, even though none of the four teams in front of the Bears lost last week.

  

Clairton and talented running back Deontae Howard jumped from No. 5 to No. 1 in the Harrisburg Patriot-News Class A rankings. The Bears stayed at No. 5 in the Post-Gazette rankings.
