A pair of newly top-ranked teams highlight the latest WyoPreps Coaches and Media Football Poll.
There are also two teams in this week’s rankings and change in all five classes.
The new No. 1 teams are Big Piney and Mountain View. They join Little Snake River, Cody, and Cheyenne East at the top.

The Hornets fell to second and earned four first-place votes. Southeast garnered three first-place votes and climbed to third. Wind River got two first-place votes but fell to fourth. Lingle-Ft.

Tongue River and Big Horn moved up to second and third. The Eagles earned five first-place votes, and the Rams got one. The Lovell Bulldogs jumped back into the rankings at No. 4. Previously top-ranked Lyman fell to fifth. Cokeville got a first-place vote but fell out of the top five.
In Class 1A 6-man, Little Snake River continued its reign. The Rattlers garnered all but one first-place vote. Encampment remained second, but the poll changed after that. Burlington rose to third, which pushed Dubois down to fourth. Farson-Eden made its debut in the rankings in fifth.
