Big upset causes shakeup in The Fresno Bee’s high school football rankings – including a return

Redwood continues to shake up The Bee’s high school football Top 25 rankings.

This time, the Rangers pulled off a 27-22 upset against Tulare Western, pushing Redwood up six spots to No. 11 and dropping the Mustangs nine spots to No. 16.

The Rangers joined the rankings just two weeks ago at No. 25, then leaped eight spots with an upset win over Tulare Union.

Central and Buchanan remain Nos. 1-2 after wins, and Bullard moved up one spot to No. 3 after rolling to a 63-10 victory over Pitman-Turlock.

Dinuba rejoins the rankings at No. 25. The Emperors were in the preseason Top 25 but fell out after starting with a 49-42 loss to Porterville and a 28-25 loss to Redwood. But Dinuba has won its last two, including 38-0 over El Diamante.
