No changes at the top of this week's rankings, but there are some in the bottom five.

Conference play begins in the CAAC this week, and I expect more changes in the next week or two. There are 16 area teams that are 2-0.

    We know one thing about the Vikings so far, they can play defense!!!!!  Allowed only 12 points so far this season.  And they should be 3-0 after this week's game against Owosso.

    Last Week: No. Unranked

    Coach Scott Farley has the Vikings revitalized!!!  If they can beat East Lansing this week, they'll be 3-0 for the first time since 2003.  Way to go!
