(Last week's rankings in parentheses)

1. Andrean (2) 2-0

Who owns Broadway? Who owns Broadway? Who owns Broadway? Who owns Broadway? Who owns Broadway? Who owns Broadway? Who owns Broadway? Who owns Broadway? Matt DeSomer.

2. Merrillville (1) 1-1

The Pirates are smarting after a tough loss against their neighbors to the north. Now it's the neighbors to the south. The Bucs have won three straight and Broadway goes through C.P. as well.

3. Crown Point (3) 2-0

The Bulldogs are 2-0 against two 4A schools. Good 4A schools. But still 4A. They will have to have a monster effort to beat the best big-school team in Lake County. These 'Dogs want to own Broadway, too.

4. Morton (4) 2-0

Is Roy Richards Lou Holtz? We're young. We're inexperienced. We don't have an ice machine, full-time trainer or kicking coach. Yeah, right. The Govs are undefeated and will remain so after tonight's game with Clark.

5. Hobart (6) 2-0

The sky is crying. Tonight's game at The Boneyard is the last regular-season tilt between the two blue-collar rivals on natural grass. The world is upside down. The clock is ticking backwards.

6. Chesterton (NR) 1-1

The Trojans rebounded nicely from a tough opening loss, waiting out two days of lightning to pop Munster on NWI's Monday Night Football. Offense looks sharp, improving defense will be tested by potent Michigan City attack tonight. How they will handle the short turnaround?

7. Lake Central (NR) 1-1

The greatest show on earth, E.C.'s offense, ran into a rain-delayed blue brick wall last Saturday. Will host Portage tonight, another circus-like offense. Will the brick wall prevail or will the tent fall down?

8. Rensselaer (9) 2-0

Chris Meeks, meet Kirk Kennedy. The Bombers travel to North Judson and one thing is for sure. This rivalry is going to heat up in the coming years. Good now. Great later.

9. Whiting (10) 2-0

So what is better, the Oilers' offense or defense? At Wheeler tonight, both sides of the ball should be super again. Book it now. This team will not lose a regular-season game. Then, October.

10. Portage (NR) 1-1

The Indians were no match for Penn, but that's no disgrace. The defense actually played well, they just didn't get any support from the still-struggling offense. After getting knocked to the mat the last two years by L.C. to the tune of 102-24, they go to the Burial Grounds with a puncher's chance tonight.

On the bubble: Boone Grove (2-0), Griffith (1-1), Michigan City (2-0), Munster 1-1, E.C. Central (1-1), Highland (2-0), Kankakee Valley (1-1), Lowell (0-2), North Newton (1-1), West Side (1-1).
