Williamston's loss to Fowlerville knocks them out, so a new team will take their place.

On with this week's rankings:

  • 1

    Portland (6-0, 4-0)

    Last Week: No. 1

    A surprisingly easy 45-0 win over Eaton Rapids keeps them at number 1.  Has the best win of the season - Week 4 over Lansing Catholic 28-6.

  • 2

    Grand Ledge (6-0, 4-0)

    Last Week: No. 2

    The schedule gets tougher with Everett, East Lansing, and at Holt to finish the season.  Win all three and they're CAAC Blue champs.

  • 3

    DeWitt (6-0, 4-0)

    Last Week: No. 3

    Big win over Haslett on Friday night, 27-10.  A bigger game awaits on Friday.  At home against 5-1 St. Johns for the outright CAAC Red title.

    Lakewood (6-0, 4-0)

    Last Week: No. 4

    The Vikings are 6-0 for the first time since 1974.  Nick Boucher is the top candidate for Mid-Michigan Coach of the Year.

    Pewamo-Westphalia (6-0, 4-0)

    Last Week: No. 5

    P-W's two toughest games in the league are coming up,  Laingsburg and Fowler.  Running back Jared Smith is having a great season for the Pirates.

    Ithaca (6-0, 5-0)

    Last Week: No. 8

    An easy 38-0 win over Saginaw MLS on the road moves them up in this week's poll.  Should be unchallenged until the playoffs.

  • 7

    Lansing Catholic (5-1, 3-1)

    Last Week: No. 6

    Have rebounded well after the Portland loss.  Easy wins over Fowlerville and Ionia have righted the ship.  May get a rematch with Portland in the playoffs.

    St. Johns, (5-1, 4-0)

    Last Week: No. 7

    Will move up if they beat DeWitt on the road for the CAAC Red title this coming Friday.

    Dansville (5-1, 4-1)

    Last Week: No. 9

    The Aggies have the second best win of the season in the area - Winning in Week 5 at Fowler 24-19.  One more win gives them another playoff berth.

  • 10

    Fowler (5-1, 4-1)

    Last Week: Unranked

    A win over Saranac makes the Eagles playoff-bound.  Then the annual grudge match against P-W in Week 8.
