USA TODAY High School Sports Super 25 football rankings as of Dec. 12, 2023

A state title upset in Florida and big-time wins in Texas reshaped the latest Super 25, with three teams from the Lone Star State now in the top 10 — DeSoto, North Shore and Duncanville.

At the top of the rankings, Bishop Gorman (Nev.) and Chaminade-Madonna (Fla.) held firm while Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) sealed up Open Division Championship No. 4 and made a strong case for Super 25 supremacy.

Outside looking in, three new teams appear in the bottom half, which continues to shift and shake as the season nears an end.

The methodology: the HSS staff creates the Super 25 rankings while considering various data points, including strength of schedule, prospects, the more traditional stats—did the team win or lose?—as well as overall point differentials.
