1. L.B. POLY (2-0, SS-Pac-5)

Jackrabbits are on pace to give up 45 points -- during entire regular season. (1)

2. COR. CENTENNIAL (2-0, SS-Inland)

Huskies to state bowl game selection committee: "Open (division) sesame!" (2)

3. CRESPI (3-0, SS-Pac-5)

Coach Jeremiah Ross, now 2-0 against former mentor, wonders why he wasn't the boss. (4)

4. MISSION VIEJO (3-0, SS-Pac-5)

Having thrown for 12 TDs in three games, Allan Bridgford hears there's another QB in the O.C. who's pretty good. (5)

5. MATER DEI (2-1, SS-Pac-5)

L.A. Jordan DE James Boyd won't want to get too sack-happy Thursday; he'll be QB Matt Barkley's teammate next year at USC. (3)

6. ST. BONAVENTURE (3-0, SS-Northern)

Given choice, Coach Todd Therrien would opt to watch film of crisp first half over shoddy second half of L.A. Jordan victory. (7)

Given choice, Coach Troy Thomas would opt to watch baby videos over footage of final minutes of Crespi loss. (6)

8. SO NOTRE DAME (2-0, SS-Pac-5)

Playing 0-3 Birmingham won't give Knights originally intended strength-of-schedule boost. (8)

9. OAKS CHRISTIAN (3-0, SS-Northwest)

Coach Bill Redell's favorite dessert haunt must be Sprinkles because all he does is schedule cupcakes. (9)

10. REDLANDS EAST VALLEY (2-0, SS-Inland)

Having dispatched two Inland Empire opponents, Wildcats' next victory should come straight outta Compton (Dominguez). (10)

Dolphins make Hootie & the Blowfish cry but not the Chargers. (11)

12. LOS OSOS (2-0, SS-Central)

Just about everything UCLA QBs have done this season, Richard Brehaut hopes to do better in 2009. (12)

13. BISHOP AMAT (2-1, SS-Pac 5)

RB Deshawn Gaisie wants to meet (Eric) Bieniemy after equaling his mark of five touchdowns in a game for Lancers. (13)

14. UPLAND (3-0, SS-Central)

Can anyone stop Titans? It's hard to know until they play someone. (23)
