SANTA ANA – Maybe the computer now is convinced.

Mater Dei and Bishop Gorman this week both were ranked No. 1 in USA Today’s national high school football top 25. USA Today’s “expert” top 25, put together by humans, had Mater Dei at No. 1. Gorman was No. 1 in USA Today’s computer-generated top 25.

The Monarchs defeated Bishop Gorman, 35-21, Friday at Santa Ana Stadium.
