When McPherson High’s football team opens its season Sept. 1 at Buhler, it will be a showdown of teams ranked in the Top 3 of Class 4A Division I, according to CatchItKansas.com.

Buhler is No. 2 and the Bullpups are No. 3. Both teams trail defending state champion Miege.

Maize South, MHS’ opponent in Week 2, is ranked right behind the Bullpups at No. 4. Abilene, which is in MHS’ district, rounds out the Top 5.

Andale, which the Bullpups defeated in the playoffs last year, is ranked No. 6. Rounding out the Top 10 are Mulvane, Louisburg, Basehor-Linwood and DeSoto.

Hesston, which finished second in the state in Class 3A last year, opens in that same spot, trailing only defending champion Rossville.

Smoky Valley checked in at No. 7 in Class 4A Division II.
