Football By The Numbers for Week Four

This week's high school football slate had a little bit of everything -- upsets, big passing, big rushing -- and the number of undefeated teams is dwindling as the regular season nears its midpoint. Every team has given up at least a touchdown and many offenses have gone over the 100-point mark already.

Here's what stood out from the fourth week of high school football action:
