The Times' high school football rankings by Ben Bolch:

*--* Rk. Team (Rec., Sec.-Div.) Comment (Last week's ranking) 1 CRENSHAW (4-0, City-Division I) If it's truly "open," then state championship bowl game should pit Cougars against Oaks Christian. (1) 2 OAKS CHRISTIAN (3-0, SS-Northwest) The joke could be on rankings committee if Lions finish 15-0. (4) 3 EDISON (4-0, SS-Pac 5) Loaded Chargers are more than a passing (league) fancy. (6) 4 ST. BONAVENTURE (4-0, SS-Northern) Winning ugly results in rankings slide for Seraphs. (3) 5 LAKEWOOD (3-1, SS-Pac-5) Lancers primed to end Long Beach Poly's epic Moore League winning streak -- if Long Beach Jordan doesn't do it first. (5) 6 SERVITE (3-1, SS-Pac-5) Friars might have already left campus to make long trek to Temecula by game time. (2) 7 RANCHO CUCAMONGA (4-0, SS-Central) College recruiters better make sure they get pronunciation right when they call Sateki Finau. (7) 8 GARDENA SERRA (4-0, SS-Northwest) Taft matchup just got downgraded from colossal showdown to eh. (9) 9 MOORPARK (3-0, SS-Northern) Game against Calabasas attracts fans of high school football and overpriced real estate. (10) 10 LOS ALAMITOS (3-0, SS-Pac 5) Victory over La Habra could earn Griffins invite to set of "The Real Housewives of Orange County." (11) 11 MISSION VIEJO (4-0, SS-Pac 5) Road to South Coast League title suddenly doesn't seem so bumpy. (12) 12 REDLANDS E. VALLEY (3-0, SS-Inland) The Inland Empire strikes back when quarterback Tyler Shreve scores on game's final play. (20) 13 S.O. NOTRE DAME (3-1, SS-Pac 5) Knights claim they added Dominguez to schedule before Dons lost 10 of last 13 games. (13) 14 MATER DEI (3-1, SS-Pac 5) Playing to the level of their opponent means Monarchs have a chance against Edison. (14) 15 CORONA CENTENNIAL (2-1, SS-Inland) Committing six turnovers again this week against 3-0 Corona Roosevelt could result in new city champ. (15) 16 CHAPARRAL (2-1, SS-Inland) Good luck trying to replicate 540-yard offensive explosion against Servite. (16) 17 CRESPI (2-2, SS-Pac 5) Rankings committee won't be nearly as forgiving if Celts lose to Saugus in two weeks. (17) 18 ORANGE LUTHERAN (1-2, SS-Pac 5) Lancers mistakenly thought Redlands East Valley quarterback Tyler Shreve was going to take a knee on last play. (8) 19 VALENCIA (3-0, SS-Northern) Playing Santa Monica these days about as leisurely as a stroll down Third Street Promenade. (19) 20 FOUNTAIN VALLEY (4-0, SS-Pac-5) San Diego Scripps Ranch might not have enough horses to keep up with Barons. (23) 21 NORCO (2-1, SS-Inland) Deantre Lewis, Kelsey Young, Carl Bradford combine for 402 yards, one miffed defensive coordinator vs. La Quinta. (24) 22 CHARTER OAK (3-1, SS-Southeast) Chargers may want to save their pregame jawing until after beating an opponent. (21) 23 NEWPORT HARBOR (3-0, SS-Pac 5) Sailors apparently didn't get memo that ranked teams aren't supposed to play on Thursdays. (25) 24 ALEMANY (3-1, SS-Western) Warriors invite TMZ camera crew to accompany them to Harvard-Westlake in case Ashton Kutcher shows up. (NR) 25 VISTA MURRIETA (3-0, SS-Inland) Game against 0-3 Palos Verdes Peninsula has 4 p.m. start so Broncos can play varsity-level opponent afterward. (NR) *--*
