After a couple of big wins this past weekend, there are two new #1 ranked teams in this week's South Dakota Prep Media Football Poll.

Madison has taken the top spot in the Class 11A rankings after defeating former #1 Canton 30-14 last weekend. Madison is now 5-0 on the season. The other #1 change comes in 9B where 5-0 Avon has taken the top spot after defeating Gayville-Volin 36-32.

There were no changes in the 11AAA ranks this week. Harrisburg remains the favorite after a win over Roosevelt. Brandon Valley is also undefeated at 5-0 with a big game this week against #4 Lincoln on the horizon.

Tea Area continues to impress in 11AA as a second-half outburst led them to a 44-13 win over Watertown at home. The Titans will head out west to Douglas this week. Pierre remains ranked second in 11AA with Brookings right behind them.
