1. (1) Columbia (4-0), Class 6A

Last week: Off

This week: vs. Gainesville (0-4)*

Last week: d. St. Augustine 43-40 

This week: Off

3. (3) Oakleaf (4-1), Class 8A

Last week: d. White, 26-7

This week: at Sandalwood (3-1)*

4. (8) Trinity Christian (2-3), Class 3A

Last week: d. Miami Carol City, 42-21

This week: vs. Pahokee (1-3), 7:30 p.m.

5. (7) Lee (3-1), Class 6A

Last week: d. Mandarin, 32-27

This week: vs. Middleburg (1-3)*

6. (5) Fleming Island (4-0), Class 7A

Last week: d. Ridgeview, 33-3

This week: at Creekside (3-2)*

Last week: d. Creekside, 24-21

This week: at Palatka (1-3)

Glance: Bolles edged Creekside on a last-second field goal, their second big win over a St. Johns County program in a row. There's not much left on this schedule, save for a Week 11 game at Mainland, that's too daunting.

Last week: lost to Ribault, 21-14

This week: vs. Oakleaf (4-1)*
