Lansing-Area High School Football Power Rankings: Week 8
Congratulations to DeWitt, Portland, and Lakewood for clinching league titles last week.
That fact reflects a slight change in this week's rankings. There's also a slight change near the bottom of the rankings.
Two weeks left in the regular season...on with this week's rankings.
The Red Raiders continue to impress with big time victory after big time victory. Clinched the CAAC White title after crushing Williamston. They go to Olivet this week.
The Panthers looked impressive against St. Johns in Week 7. Their defense contained the Red Wings running backs very well. A tough road trip and game at Menominee is this Friday.
The Comets have taken care of everybody in the CAAC Blue thus far. They can still move up in the poll if they beat East Lansing and Holt in the final two weeks.
Nick Boucher is the area coach of the year, leading the Vikings to their first league title over three decades. Two more wins make them 9-0 for the first time since 1974.
Running back Jared Smith is having an unbelievable season for coach Jeremy Miller. The Pirates go for the outright CMAC title against arch-rival Fowler at home this Friday.
It's been a running clock in the second half of all their games this season for the Yellow Jackets. It'll be that way until the playoffs.
The Cougars have recovered from the Portland loss and have re-established themselves as a legitimate state title contender.
The Aggies are going to the playoffs in back-to-back years for the first time ever. And can get a share of the CMAC title if they win over Laingsburg and P-W loses to Fowler.
The Eagles struggled over Saranac last week. But they can clinch a share of the CMAC championship if they win at P-W on Friday night.
The Rams have righted themselves after an 0-2 start. Two more wins give them the outright CAAC Blue title before a possible home game in the playoffs.
