ESPN 25 Power Rankings: Week 3

Week:

ESPN RecruitingNation

After games of Sept. 8

It's only the third week of the ESPN 25 Power Rankings and there are already big changes. Four more teams fell out of the rankings this week, headlined by previous No. 24 and national powerhouse Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.), which fell to an 0-2 Gilman (Baltimore) squad 13-6. The loss snapped Don Bosco's 46-game winning streak.

The Ironmen will quickly get a shot to get back on track when they take on fellow national power No. 23 St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) on Friday at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN2. Aquinas joins the rankings after starting the year 2-0.

Rounding out this week's newcomers are No. 20 Camden County (Kingsland, Ga.), No. 21 Allen (Texas) and No. 24 Ensworth (Nashville, Tenn.).
