Big Games This Week (involving both teams from the section): Granite Bay at Del Oro; Central Catholic at Manteca; Grant at Franklin.

Note of the Week: At the end of last season, St. Mary’s of Stockton was scheduled to be hosting national powerhouse St. John Bosco of Bellflower on the Sept. 22-23 weekend for this season. The Rams played and lost at St. John Bosco 55-16 last season. The Braves then got the opportunity to play at St. John’s of Washington D.C. for the same weekend. After some negotiating and searching, a replacement was found for St. Mary’s: Bosco league rival Mater Dei of Santa Ana. Officials at both St. Mary’s and Mater Dei then agreed to have their game moved to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. While the Rams already have a loss to Central Catholic of Modesto, the Monarchs already have a win over 2016 mythical national champ Bishop Gorman of Las Vegas and are the consensus No. 1 team in the nation.
