For Eagle and Bishop Kelly, the formula is becoming well-worn — another week, another win and another No. 1 ranking in the state media poll.

Both the Mustangs and the Knights came out on top of the latest 5A and 4A state rankings, released Tuesday evening. It is the fourth straight week at No. 1 for Eagle, while unanimously top-ranked Bishop Kelly has been No. 1 in 4A all season.

Eagle opened its 5A SIC Pod B schedule last week with a 41-6 victory over Kuna, while Bishop Kelly needed overtime to finally put away Emmett.

Around the state, Shelley overtook Sugar-Salem as the No. 1 team in 3A. And Salmon River dropped to No. 2 in 1A Division II after a 52-20 loss to Lapwai snapped its 13-game winning streak.
