Football Rankings: Week 4, 2013 [POLL]

Football
Kevin Koile – wyopreps.com

Two new #1′s have reached the top of the polls heading into the half-way point of the season, and the first cold blast of the season is scheduled to arrive, about 2 weeks ahead of normal schedule.

Gillette got their revenge last week, against a Natrona team responsible for their only 2 losses last year. The Camels now claim the top spot. Sheridan climbs up to #2 after pulling off a stunning surprise against former #1 East. The Energy Bowl rivals need to focus on the next game and the weather, before they can turn their attention to each other next week. The Thunderbirds drop to #3, and Natrona drops to #4, while Central retains the #5 spot. All 5 ranked teams this week, play unranked competition.

For now in 3A…it’s Powell, Douglas, and everyone else. The Panthers claim all but 1 first vote, which went to the Bearcats. Cody moves back up to #3, by just 2 votes ahead of Star Valley. Jackson cracks the polls for the first time in a long time, as the Broncs are now #5. Conference play in 3A starts this week. The game of note has #5 Jackson at #1 Powell.

Six teams got #1 votes in 2A, after last weeks shake up on top. Mountain View is now the team with the bulls-eye on their back. Burns impressed enough voters with their win against then #1 Big Horn, that they would climb up to #2, while Lovell would hold at #3, after last week’s state title rematch shootout vs. unranked Lyman. Wheatland is up to #4, and the Rams almost went from #1 to out of the polls, but held on to #5. There are 2 huge matchups this weekend, featuring undefeated vs. undefeated. #3 Lovell travels to #1 Mountain View, while unranked Glenrock plays at #4 Wheatland. Some have questioned who have the Herders played so far, but they have their chance this week to prove themselves.

Only 6 teams got votes in 1A…and they’re all ranked, which means there’s a tie somewhere. The top 3 are unchanged with Cokeville, Lusk and Upton-Sundance. Southeast finally scored and got their first win of the season, which was enough to bump them up to #4. Lingle-Ft. Laramie dropped to #5 after last week’s shutout loss to Lusk…and they have to share that ranking with Rocky Mountain. This is the 2nd of 2 weeks, where it’s East vs. West. Cokeville visits eastern Wyoming, for the first time in a long time, as they will go to Dogger country, for a Saturday game.

The match-up that 6-man fans have been waiting for is this week. It’s #2 Meeteetse at #1 Dubois. Seth Bennett vs. Sterling Baker. #3 Midwest is waiting to climb over the loser in the rankings…maybe. Hulett holds at #4 this week, and Kaycee is now #5. The latter 2 teams will duke it out Saturday in Buckaroo country.
