Lansing-Area High School Football Power Rankings After Week 3
There are only seven Lansing-area teams that are undefeated after three weeks of the high school football season. Two of them do battle this week as Lansing Catholic visits Portland.
Okemos' loss to Everett moves them out of this week's poll, and Bath's upset win over Fowler puts them in the poll this week.

DeWitt visits Mason, Bath is at P-W, so the rankings will change again next week.
On with this week's rankings:
Another easy win for the Pirates in Week 3. 56-0 over an improved Saranac squad keeps them at number 1.
They'll host Bath this week before they go to Fulton and Laingsburg. Maybe in these games, star running back Jared Smith will play more than one half of football.
Another week, another shutout for John Novara's Red Raiders. Junior Austin Allison is off to a great start and Logan Lefke continues to run the ball well.
They host Lansing Catholic this week in a rematch of last year's playoff loss. Portland wants that game badly.
The Cougars continue to impress with Michael Lynn III, Konnor Maloney, and Ely Whitney leading the way.
They visit Portland in a huge showdown this Friday night. If they win that, 9-0 is a possibility.
The Comets were impressive in their 40-19 victory over Sexton in their CAAC Blue opener.
They have to go to Jackson in two weeks, the winner will have the upper hand in the CAAC Blue.
The Vikings get marked down slightly after a close 37-32 win over Perry last Friday.
They host Stockbridge in two weeks, that game could decide the GLAC championship this year.
Make it 97 wins out of their last 100 games for the Yellow Jackets after their 53-0 pasting of Saginaw Valley Lutheran.
The road to 9-0 continues with another likely victory over Pinconning this week.
Jerry VanHeuvel has a terrific defense in Bulldog land this season. They've allowed only 22 points so far this year.
If they beat DeWitt this Friday, they have a shot to finish 9-0. Which would be a surprise to many.
The Panthers rebounded after a tough loss to Grand Ledge with a big home win over improved Waverly.
They will move up if they can beat Mason on Friday night on the road.
The Wolf Pack got a tough 27-20 win over Dansville on the road this past Friday.
After a likely win over Potterville, the schedule gets tougher with Fowler and P-W in the following two weeks.
Congratulations to the Fighting Bees!!! Why?? Bath beat Fowler for the first time since 1989, 17-14 at home last Friday.
They are 2-0 in the CMAC for the first time since 2000, and are improved under coach Matt Stephens.
The Bees visit P-W this week, so their stay in the power rankings could be short. But a great win for that program over Fowler.
