1. Mount Carmel (5-0)

Last Week: Beat St. Rita 24-3

This Week: @ Loyola (3)

EDGY's Take: Stellar defensive effort in win over St. Rita will need to continue this week as well.

2. Lake Zurich (5-0)

Last Week: Beat Lake Forest 21-10

This Week: vs. Antioch

EDGY's Take: Trailed to Lake Forest 10-0 early but rebounded nicely. The Bears passing game is for real.

3. Loyola Academy (5-0)

Last Week: Beat Brother Rice 24-3

This Week: vs. Mount Carmel (1)

EDGY's Take: The Ramblers look to retain the CCL Blue title and a win on Saturday will go a long way towards keeping that crown.

4. Montini Catholic (5-0)

Last Week: Beat Marmion 27-3

This Week: vs. Immaculate Conception

EDGY's Take: The Broncos are cruising, but the schedule will get tougher soon.

5. Glenbard West (4-1) (7)

Last Week: Beat Hinsdale Central 37-7

This Week: @ OPRF (16)

EDGY's Take: Despite being banged up the Hitters can still hit.

6. Bolingbrook (5-0) (8)

Last Week: Beat Joliet West 30-6

This Week: vs. Lockport

7. Naperville Central (5-0) (9)

Last Week: Beat West Aurora 56-0

This Week: @ Wheaton South (10)

8. Joliet Catholic (5-0) (13)

Last Week: Beat Marist 49-27

Last Week: Lost to Homewood-Floosmoor 24-21

Last Week: Lost to Evergreen Park 35-34
