Controversy rules the day in this week's POWERADE Michigan Rankings. While the top teams remained largely intact save for a frustrating loss for Eisenhower, former No. 8 Clarkston was forced to forfeit two of its victories after the use of an ineligible player. The losses give the Wolves little margin for error in the playoff hunt, but the Wolves were dominant at 3-0 before the news, and another solid win this week keeps them in the rankings with the final spot. New squad Grand Rapids Christian joins the ranks after a blistering 62-point outburst this week.
1. Harrison — defeated Oxford, 34-7 (last week: No. 1)
2. Detroit Catholic Central — defeated Highland Park, 42-6 (last week: No. 2)
3. Canton — defeated Wayne, 47-14 (last week: No. 4)
