About the rankings: USA TODAY's Super 25 football rankings are compiled by Lawlor, who consults with a national network of prep sports writers, analysts and coaches. Among the criteria: a school's strength of schedule, the quality of competition in its state or league and the quality of its players.

The rankings will appear on Tuesdays throughout the fall.
