Mid-Michigan H.S. Football Top 10 (After Week 8)
Congratulations to Holt for clinching a share of the CAAC Blue title with a 16-13 home victory over East Lansing. They didn't make the poll this week. But they'll need to beat 5-3 Ann Arbor Huron to clinch a playoff berth in Division 1.
Also, congratulations are in order for Fowler and Pewamo-Westphalia as they clinched a share of the CMAC title with victories last Friday.
We still only have one unbeaten team left in the area. And that's Mason. The Bulldogs took care of Jackson last Friday, and should end up 9-0 as they host 0-8 Eaton Rapids.
The same ten teams that were in the poll last week are in the poll this week. The order is different, as I took last Friday's results into account.
Having said that, here's this week's top 10 poll:
