But Norco routed Centennial, 42-21, to strengthen its hold on the top spot. However, there were other games that had an impact on the rankings, including two games that involved matchups of Top 10 teams. When Los Osos routed Rancho Cucamonga 52-21 on Friday, it sent those teams in opposite directions. Rancho Cucamonga had been ranked No. 2, but dropped to No. 8 with the loss. That’s two spots behind Los Osos, which moved out of a tie for seventh.

If ever there was a golden opportunity for a new team to take over the No. 1 spot in the Inland Valley Top 10 Prep Football Poll, last week was it. Norco, undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the Inland Valley and in CIF-Southern Section Division V, was playing No. 2-ranked Corona Centennial, the team the Cougars lost to twice last year, including in the CIF championship game.
