There was a shakeup in this week’s 5A football state media poll as Rigby makes an appearance at No. 5, while Highland and Eagle both dropped out of the top-5 rankings following losses. Mountain View, which lost to Borah, drops from second to third, and Borah moves into the poll at No. 4.

Rocky Mountain, at 8-0, remained the top team with all eight first-place votes and Coeur d’Alene moved up two spots to No. 2.

In 4A, District 6 champion Blackfoot stayed at No. 2 behind unbeaten Kuna.

District 6 teams Sugar-Salem (3A), North Fremont (2A) and Lost Rivers (1A Division I) all remained No. 1 in their respective classifications. Lost Rivers, which was tied for the top spot last week with Prairie, was No. 1 outright this week by two points.
