The Eagle High football program survived an upset scare last week at Centennial, and Bishop Kelly rolled to its 15th straight win, allowing both teams to hold on to the No. 1 state media poll rankings in their classifications.

But both teams may face their toughest challenges yet this season. Undefeated Eagle hosts No. 5 Rocky Mountain on Friday in a possible 5A SIC Pod B championship game. And three-time defending state champ Bishop Kelly hosts No. 4 Skyview, winner of four straight, on Friday.

Elsewhere in the rankings, Mountain View jumped to No. 3 after its 71-2 rout of Meridian. And the 4A SIC holds on to four of the top five spots in 4A rankings with Bishop Kelly, Emmett, Skyview and Vallivue all being ranked.
