A total of 13 teams from the Cedar Valley and Northeast Iowa are again featured in this week's high school football poll released by the Associated Press on Monday (Oct. 5, 2015).

The biggest shake-up involving area teams occurred in Class-2A, where North Fayette Valley (4-2) fell four spots to No. 9 following last week's 14-6 loss at Dyersville Beckman Catholic. The Tigerhawks took the spot previously occupied by Waukon (5-1). The Indians moved up one spot to No. 8 in the latest survey, while Aplington-Parkerburg (5-1) vacated the No. 8 ranking and moved up to No. 6.

In eight-player football, Don Bosco (4-0) rose two spots to No. 2 this week, following a No. 4 ranking last week. Janesville (6-0) remains eighth, while Central Community (6-0) of Elkader climbed one spot to No. 8.

Denver (5-1) fell one spot to No. 5 in the Class-A rankings, despite last week's 42-7 win over AGWSR. Gladbrook-Reinbeck (4-2) also dropped slightly in the poll after a lop-sided win. The Rebels beat North Tama, 51-7. Friday night, then fell to No. 9 after being ranked eighth last week.

The two area teams are ranked in Class-1A collide in Calmar Friday night, when No. 2 Dike-New Hartford (6-0) plays at No. 7 South Winneshiek (5-1). The Warriors moved up three spots in the latest survey following last week's No. 10 ranking.

The three remaining area teams held their positions from last week. West Delaware stayed at No. 2 and Independence kept its No. 6 ranking in Class-3A, while Cedar Falls is ranked 10th once again in Class-4A.
