Eleven weeks into the high school football season, it's pretty obvious that Blue Springs is the team to beat in Missouri Class 6 football for the second straight year.

The Wildcats, 11-0, have played one of the most difficult schedules in the area, yet their average margin of victory remains 29 points per game.

Not bad.

The numbers are apparently starting to turn some heads outside the state, too. Blue Springs snuck into the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 poll this week, claiming the final spot.

Blue Springs will play host to Lee's Summit at 7 p.m. Friday in the Class 6 quarterfinals. Blue Springs defeated Lee's Summit 49-7 earlier this season, which remains the Tigers' only loss of the year.
