Los Gatos’ ascent up the Bay Area News Group’s Top 25 football rankings continued as the Wildcats leaped four spots, to No. 6, after routing previously undefeated Mountain View last week.

But where will Los Gatos land next week?

The game of the spring in the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League’s De Anza Division is Thursday night when Los Gatos travels to Wilcox, which checked in at No. 12 in the latest rankings.

Los Gatos and Wilcox are 3-0.

With only one game left after this week, the stakes Thursday are a league championship and probable Top 10 season-ending ranking.

Bishop O’Dowd made the biggest jump of the week, going from unranked to No. 18 after its win last week over San Leandro. The Dragons’ only defeat was by eight points at San Ramon Valley, which is ranked fifth this week.

James Logan, which has sizzled through three games, climbed from 18th to 14th this week. The Colts will visit Bishop O’Dowd on Friday night.

Acalanes also moved up four spots, from 19th to 15th.

In addition to O’Dowd, Heritage and De Anza cracked the Top 25 this week. Heritage is ranked 24th, De Anza 25th.
