Midlands Team Rankings: Week Nine

As we head into week nine of the football season, we have a clear picture of the top teams in the Midlands. This week, there was movement in the top ten, with previously unbeaten River Bluff loosing to Dutch Fork. The Gators only drop one spot. That is because I still believe they are the third best 5A team in the Midlands right now behind Dutch Fork and Sumter. The other Top Ten loss was Camden to Fairfield-Central. Because of the wins from the rest of the field and the loss to a team outside of the top ten, the Bulldogs drop significantly in the polls. This week, they have a tough match up against defeending 3A Champion Chester.
