Fun PE Games for middle school kids? (Stuff you can play in a gym with 30 kids and fairly good ball/mat/whatever resources)

I'm taking over 45 minutes of a physical education class per week, in which I'm supposed to bring in a few games, explain the rules, and have a group of 13 year old kids play them. I've had real success with a couple games (Rafts, where kids need to competitively cross the gym without touching anything but 2 mats, and line basketball, where 2 teams stand in a line and have to pass to all members of their team and freethrow before the other team does), and a few flops, and I'd love to have some suggestions for new games.
