Wyoming High School Football Rankings: Week 5, 2014 [POLL]
Things at starting to settle at the top of the latest coaches/media polls, but there's still still time to stir things up.
The latest 4A poll is unchanged from last week, but the matchups are bigger. Natrona is still #1, with all but 1 first place vote. Sheridan is #2 and has that other 1. After that it's Gillette, Cheyenne East and Kelly Walsh. This weekend is the Energy Bowl as Gillette visits Sheridan, and it's also the Oil Bowl, as NC visits KW and tries to reclaim the trophy that they lost last year.
There was a small amount of movement in 3A. Cody swiped the #3 ranking from Powell by 1 vote, thus the Panthers are now #4. Other then that, Riverton is still #1, Douglas is #2, and undefeated Jackson is #5. There are no matchups of ranked team vs. ranked team this weekend, but Riverton and Douglas should be ready, because Rawlins and Torrington are both 3-1, and would love to spring an upset. Actually the TrailBlazers have dropped 8 straight vs. the Bearcats...all of them by a blowout margin.
The top 4 in 2A in unchanged from last week. The rankings remain with Big Horn at #1, followed by Mountain View, Newcastle and Wheatland. Thermopolis is back in the rankings at #5, and will help christen the new lights at Big Horn this Friday. Meanwhile MV has some unfinished business with unranked Pinedlae. Recall that the Buffalos lost this game last year.
Like 2A, the top 4 in 1A is unchanged as well. Cokeville, Lusk and Lingle-Ft. Laramie are all undefeated, and Southeast is still #4. Burlington cracks the top 5 by one vote ahead of Upton-Sundance and Moorcroft, but the Huskies have to make the trip to Cokeville this weekend.
No change in the 6-man ranks. Guernsey-Sunrise holds the top spot with all but 1 first place. Behind them is Little Snake River, Meeteetse, Farson-Eden, and Kaycee. The schedule doesn't have much for the ranked teams, but that doesn't mean some team can't spring an upset.
