Allen No. 1, DeSoto No. 4, Katy No. 12 in latest national composite football rankings
Allen is all alone at No. 1, DeSoto is still at No. 4, and Katy has moved up one spot to No. 12 in this week's national composite football rankings put together by MaxPreps. Just like a week ago, Allen and DeSoto get a big boost from the computer rankings, which have Allen at the top and DeSoto at No. 2.
Allen and DeSoto can meet in the Class 5A Division I semifinals, and if they do, they'll each be 14-0. It would be a tremendous matchup. Katy is in the 5A Division II bracket, so it won't play Allen or DeSoto this season.
Here are the details on the Texas teams:
