SALT LAKE CITY — There were very few surprising results in week four of the Utah high school football season which meant very little change in the polls.
For the 2nd year in a row Hurricane and Dixie will meet in a No. 1 vs. No. 2 match-up. Last year Hurricane got the best of Dixie on their way to another region title and the first 11-man football state championship in school history. This year's meeting will likely give the winner a leg-up in the quest for the Region 9 title in 2012.No. 2 Alta at No. 1 Jordan Friday 7pm
Another 1 vs. 2 match-up featuring region rivals. There is no love lost between these two teams and this time there is a lot riding on the outcome. There is a good chance we could see a rematch in the 5A state championship. There will be several players in this game that will play Division I college football some day. No. 1 East at No. 4 Woods Cross Friday 7pm
These two teams open up Region 6 play with a match-up of ranked teams. Another game loaded with college prospects. Region 6 is arguably the deepest and most competitive region in the state and this game should be outstanding.No. 4 Syracuse at Davis Friday 7pm
Many high school football fans are looking forward to the match-up between No. 4 Syracuse and No. 5 Northridge on September 28. Syracuse better not be. They will be on upset alert against Davis who will be the biggest test so far this season for the Titans. Davis has looked strong after a season opening loss to a very good Brighton team. The Titans have only beat the Darts once back in 2009.No. 3 Juan Diego at Granger 7pm
This is another intriguing game featuring undefeated teams. Is Granger for real? They got off to a 4-0 start last year. Their first loss was to Juan Diego. The Lancers would then lose three of their last five games and missed the playoffs. A win over 3A powerhouse Juan Diego would be their best win of the season and could help this program finally get over the hump. For Juan Diego it's a chance to knock off another big school as they continue their quest to win another 3A title.
The top five in 5A remains the same but is likely to change next week. No. 1 Jordan will host No. 2 Alta in one of the most important match-ups of the year. The winner will likely be the No. 1 team in the state next week and will have a leg up in the Region 3 race. Bingham remains No. 3 followed by No. 4 Syracuse and No. 5 Northridge. If both Syracuse and Northridge win this week it will set up a match-up of undefeated Region 1 teams on September 28.
East continues to top the 4A poll but there was some changes behind them.
Timpview has moved up to No. 2 after they defeated Mountain View 48-7. Logan drops one spot to No. 3 after a 38-13 home win over 3A Spanish Fork.
Woods Cross remains No. 4 after crushing Sky View in our Game Night Live Game of the Week 41-14.
There is also a change at No. 5 in the poll as Bountiful is back in the top five moving past Herriman.
Hurricane continues to rule 3A as they prepare for their big Region 9 battle Friday against Dixie. The Flyers have moved ahead of Juan Diego to No. 2 after an impressive come-from-behind win over Pine View. This sets up another 1 vs. 2 match-up in the state this Friday. Juan Diego is now No. 3 after a 27-19 win over Skyline. Stansbury is still undefeated and ranked 4th followed by Spanish Fork who rounds out the top five.
San Juan is still No. 1 in 2A followed by Manti at No. 2. South Summit moves up to No. 3 after an impressive win over previously 3rd ranked Millard. The Eagles drop to No. 5 behind the Emery Spartans who move up one spot to No. 4.
There is one change in 1A as Rich moves up to No. 2 after an impressive win over 4th ranked Summit Academy. Duchesne is No. 1 followed by Rich, Monticello, Summit Academy and Diamond Ranch.
