Throughout the 2023 high school football season, SBLive is taking a look at the top 25 teams in the state of Texas, spanning all classifications and corners of the Lone Star State.

Each week, we release an update to the SBLive Texas Power 25 football team rankings, reflecting all results from the previous week.

Through eight weeks, the top 10 has really solidified themselves as real contenders to win a state title. However, the rest of the top 25 have proven that no matter what on any given night, an upset can happen.

In the top 15, Cibolo-Steele slides up one spot over idle South Oak Cliff, while the McKinney Lions drop four spots to No. 25 after their first loss of the season.
