Big schools (5A-4A)
1. Acadiana (1-0) 1
The Wreckin’ Rams allowed Northside to score a 90-yard touchdown on its first drive but cruised over the Vikings rest of the way in a 55-6 rout. The defending champs looked good.
2. St. Thomas More (1-0) 2
St. Thomas More returned the opening kickoff for a score and never looked back in a 43-26 win against Sulphur in its season opener.
3. Breaux Bridge (1-0) 3
The Tigers limited 5A opponent New Iberia to just 49 yards of offense in a suffocating 22-3 Week 1 win. Breaux Bridge’s defense will get a stiff test this week against Notre Dame and starting quarterback Brad Stoma.
4. Rayne (1-0) 5
Rayne rolled over St. Edmund, a playoff team from a year ago, by an impressive 33-6 margin last week. They’ll face another this week in North Vermilion.
5. Carencro (1-0) NR
The Bears rode a strong second half performance from sophomore running back Tyriek Campbell to surge past Westgate 20-6. Carencro might have a future star on its hands.
Honorable mention: Teurlings, Eunice, Lafayette
Small schools (3A-1A)
1. Notre Dame (1-0) 1 Head coach Lewis Cook is gunning for his 300th career victory Thursday after his Pioneers dropped LaGrange 24-14 on the road. But his team will get a good test in Breaux Bridge.
2. Catholic New-Iberia (1-0) 2
Catholic-NI blew out defending state champion Vermilion Catholic behind four touchdowns from quarterback Jason Pellerin, who will keep Catholic near the top of this list this season.
3. Jennings (1-0) NR
Jennings screamed out to a 27-0 halftime advantage over St. Martinville before coasting to a 36-10 win.
4. Church Point (1-0) 4
Church Point ran for more than 300 yards and very nearly kept Beau Chene off the scoreboard in an impressive 35-7 week one win. They’ll get a better test against a Kaplan squad that’s hungry for a win after being shut out by Lafayette High last week.
5. Livonia (1-0) NR
The dynamic duo of CeeJay Powell and Malcolm Dedrick combined to rush for almost 350 yards in Livonia’s 41-19 rout of Live Oak last week. The Wildcats have the week off before traveling to Port Allen.
Honorable mention: Kaplan, Loreauville, Vermilion Catholic
