Nobody likely knew it at the time, but the two best football teams in Class 5A played against each other last Friday.

Spanish Fork (3-1), led by quarterback/kicker Austin Stevenson, topped previously unbeaten Springville 36-28 and on Monday morning earned the No. 2 spot in 5A RPI released by the Utah High School Activities Association. Springville (4-1) is No. 1, outpacing the Dons 0.733 to 0.713 in RPI. Provo, which is 5-0, is No. 3. Timpanogos, which also off to a 5-0 start after edging Payson 51-48 on Friday, is No. 6 and Timpview, which lost to 6A Skyridge in overtime on Friday, is No. 7.

In the 6A RPI unbeaten Mountain Ridge (0.802) claimed the top spot in its first year after moving up from Class 5A. Skyridge (0.760) is also 5-0 and is No. 2. 6A favorite Corner Canyon is No. 3 (0.790) is 5-0 and outscoring its opponents 271 to 49.

On Friday, the Chargers travel to Utah County for a big game at No. 6 American Fork, which is 4-0. Lone Peak lost its first game of the season on Saturday to Bishop Gorman (Nev.) 35-7 at the Poynesian Classic in Las Vegas and is No. 5 in RPI.
