Holt's loss to Jackson knocks them out of the poll, and there's other changes to this week's poll.
Here's the Week 9 Power Rankings:
The outright CAAC White champions blew out Olivet 59-19 on the road. Only a strong Marshall squad stands in the way of a 9-0 regular season.
Overcame SEVEN turnovers to beat East Lansing 31-21 at home. The Comets visit their arch-rivals in the Holt Rams on Friday.
Won the outright CMAC championship with a surprisingly easy win over Fowler. Running back Jared Smith is almost at 2,000 yards for the season. Could be another long playoff run for the Pirates.
The Yellow Jackets have been dominant this season. Another trip to Ford Field is a possibility, if not a likelihood.
Tough, tough loss to an excellent Menominee team on the road. But it could be an excellent primer for the postseason for the Panthers.
A great preparation for the playoffs await the Cougars. They head to the defending Division 6 champion Monroe St. Mary CC to close the regular season.
The CMAC runners-up will likely be 8-1 entering the playoffs as they host winless Vermontville Maple Valley. Should get at least one home game in the postseason.
Nearly came back to beat Fowlerville. Should be able to beat Ionia to close the season. Nick Boucher is the area coach of the year after leading the Vikings to a GLAC title.
Crushed an improving Holt team at home on Friday. But now they take on arch-rival Lumen Christi to close the regular season.
The Red Wings are back in the poll after cruising past Fruitport 37-14. A win over Goodrich could secure a home game in the first round of the playoffs.
