After suffering a shocking 19-18 loss to Rapid City Central, Sioux Falls Roosevelt has found themselves down to the 4th spot in Class 11AAA.

The regular season is just two weeks away from concluding and each class of football is starting to finally see a unanimous top team. Four of the seven classes saw the first-place team receive all 23 first-place votes.

Class 11AAA experienced a bit of an earthquake this week following a Roosevelt loss to Rapid City Central. O'Gorman moved up one spot and is in first, while Washington has bounced back from early-season woes to be back near the top of the rankings.

Surprisingly, Class 11AA remains unchanged from last week. Throughout the entire season, we have seen changes in the top-five week after week, but this week remains consistent following the top-three coming up with wins, and the 4th and 5th ranked teams losing to those above them.
