Every Tuesday during the 2018 WPIAL football season, the TribLive High School Sports Network releases weekly power rankings. These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
Eight of the Trib 10 teams from a week ago were winners, so once again, the top five remains intact.
For the second week in a row, the No. 6 team fell. McKeesport was bounced from the rankings after being upset at home by Penn-Trafford.
Also for a second consecutive week, the No. 10 team lost and was ousted. West Allegheny dropped from the ranks of the unbeaten when it fell to Peters Township in a battle of the Indians.
Week 4 has no head-to-head matchups of current Trib 10 teams, but Penn Hills, Aliquippa, North Allegheny, Central Catholic and Upper St. Clair will face stiff competition Friday night in games featured on Trib HSSN.
Here are rankings heading into Week 4.
