Forget The Record’s Prep Football Power Rankings.

After Sacramento upset Folsom 32-27 on Friday night on the Bulldogs’ vaunted blue turf, St. Mary’s has ascended to No. 1 in the Sac-Joaquin Section hierarchy. Both Cal-Hi Sports and Prep2Prep Sports moved the Rams to their top SJSCIF team on Monday.

With that, here are the latest power rankings for large and small schools in The Record’s coverage area.

The Record covers all SJAA and TCAL teams, but not Oakdale or Central Catholic in the VOL nor Summerville or Sonora in the MLL. Plus, The Record only considers San Joaquin County-based teams in the CCAA, SL and TVL. These lists include the ranking, team, last week's ranking in parenthesis and record.
