Games were completed this past week in Classes 11B, 9AA, 9A, and 9B. After one week of play, there is a new top-ranked team in 9B.

The latest edition of the South Dakota Prep Media Football Poll has been released. Five new teams between all classes have entered the top-five for the first time. The only class that remained unchanged was Class 11B, where all top-five teams were victorious.

The Colome Cowboys have taken the top spot this week in 9B after a 22-18 win over Corsica-Stickney.

Classes 11AAA, 11AA, and 11A will start the season this upcoming weekend. The polls for each of those classes remain unchanged from the preseason rankings.
