Only one upset rocked The Baltimore Sun's Top 15 football poll this week as No. 6 Mount St. Joseph surprised No. 3 St. Frances, 24-6, on Saturday.

Just a week ago, St. Frances pulled the big upset with an 8-3 win at then-No. 1 McDonogh.


With one week to go in the private school season and a week left in the public school regular season, more games were close this week with county titles and postseason berths on the line.
