Week 8 rankings: Back to basics for Warren Central, Carmel

After last week's No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown, there were no real headline games on this weekend's schedule. As a result, none of the top teams were pushed too much, as the top eight teams in the Indiana POWERADE state rankings all won by at least 19 points. No. 1 Warren Central continues to tune up for the postseason, as the Warriors revved up the rushing attack in a 55-13 win over Terre Haute South. No. 2 Carmel was just as impressive, bouncing back from its loss to Warren Central last week by tearing apart Terre Haute North, 63-0.

  1. Warren Central (8-0) — Defeated Terre Haute South, 55-13 (last week: No. 1)

  2. Carmel (7-1) — Defeated Terre Haute North, 63-0 (last week: No. 2)

  3. Ben Davis (7-1) — Defeated Lawrence North, 41-14 (last week: No. 3)
