The moment of truth.
Here's How the News Voted in this week's Buffalo News football polls.
1. Canisius (3-1). Crusaders overwhelm perhaps second-best team in their league. ICYMI, the Pittsford team Canisius defeated to open the season took down state runner-up Victor over the weekend. That's the same Victor team that beat Aquinas, which put up 65 and 41 points, vs. St. Joe's and St. Francis, respectively.
2. Lancaster (4-0). Legends have scored more than 40 points in each of their games. Definitely look like cream of crop in Class AA midway through season.
3. West Seneca West (4-0). How good is West's offense? The only time the Indians have failed to score at least 40 was in a Week Two road win at McKinley, where they put up 35 against a defense that's yielded just 31 points to everyone else.
4. South Park (4-0). The Sparks passed their biggest test yet. Another looms Friday night in Elma against fellow Class A South contender Iroquois.
5. Starpoint (4-0). Since putting up 35 points in Week One win, Spartans have scored 49, 55 and 57 points with the 49- and 55-point efforts coming on the road.
6. Williamsville North (4-0). Spartans rally to remain unbeaten, which means Thursday night's contest at 4-0 Jamestown is a big deal.
7. Jamestown (4-0). The Red Raiders play two of their biggest games of the season at home to conclude four-game homestand. Thursday is penultimate contest of that run. Next week: Lancaster.
8. St. Francis (1-3). I think the Red Raiders will warrant being voted higher down the road. For now, this is as high as I can go.
9. St. Joe's (2-2). After yielding 65 and 55 points in back-to-back televised games, this is as high as I can vote for the Marauders.
10. Williamsville East. Flames are smoking hot right now after 0-2 start. They follow up win at rival Williamsville South by taking down previously unbeaten Sweet Home in a successful debut in their new home.
1. Cheektowaga (3-1). Friday night lights win at Alden. That's a tough place to play.
2. Dunkirk (4-0). Marauders have yielded just 14 points the past three weeks. Wow. Fun nonleaguer on road at Southwestern on Friday.
3. Maryvale (4-0). Shutting out Burgard isn't easy, but the Flyers pulled it off.
4. Lackawanna (4-0). Win at Medina means Steelers are in the driver's seat to potentially win Class B-3 division title. Lackawanna also owns wins over division rivals Alden and Newfane.
5. Franklinville/Ellicottville (4-0). Titans make rare Erie County appearance this Saturday at 3-1 John F. Kennedy.
6. Cleveland Hill (3-1). The champions are still the team to beat in Class C after taking down Southwestern in rematch of last year's Section VI final.
7. Southwestern (3-1). Hiccup in Erie County notwithstanding, the Trojans are still a title contender.
8. Albion (4-0). The Purple Eagles are off to soaring under first-year coach Adam Krenning.
9. Newfane (3-1). Panthers handled their business in crushing Tonawanda. Big test looms Saturday against Alden.
10. Olean (2-2). Huskies lose to another Class B contender with one of their top players sidelined in Dylan Vincent.
