How the Top 15 football fared in Week 5

Most of The Baltimore Sun's Top 15 football teams demonstrated their dominance in Week 5 with almost all of the 11 victorious teams winning by huge margins.

The only Top 15 teams that lost fell to other Top 15 teams. Calvert Hall had the week off.

In a rare slate of Thursday games, because Yom Kippur began Friday night, all of the Top 15 teams played a day or two early and all but one of the winning teams clobbered its opponent by three touchdowns or more.

Only No. 9 Howard's win over No. 14 Glenelg was close, 20-15.

No. 2 Arundel won by 56 points. No. 3 Gilman and No. 13 Archbishop Spalding combined for 109 points with the Greyhounds winning 69-40. They blew it open with 55 second-quarter points.

Don't expect much -- if any -- change in this week's Top 15, but check Tuesday’s paper and to make sure. Here’s how the entire Top 15 fared Thursday:
