By Jayson Jenks / Seattle Times staff reporter

Bellevue's football team moved into the top spot in national polls produced by ESPN and Sports Illustrated on Monday.

The Wolverines, who finished their 14-0 season with a 35-3 win against Eastside Catholic for the Class 3A state championship, were ranked second heading into last week. But Manatee from Bradenton, Fla., the team ranked No. 1 in both ESPN and SI's poll, lost in the Florida Class 7A semifinals on Friday.

The Wolverines' ranking isn't set in stone yet: three of the top five teams in the ESPN and Sports Illustrated polls are still playing.

Bellevue is ranked fourth in Max Preps' national poll.
