Football Class 5A Rankings

#1 Pomona (12-2)
Last: Beat Hinkley 55-0

The Panthers collected a fifth straight win and stayed unbeaten in Colorado with their blowout of Hinkley. The schedule stiffens over the final three weeks with road trips to Mountain Vista & Chaparral and a home game with Cherokee Trail.

Next: at Mountain Vista
#2 Mullen (9-3)
Last: Beat Columbine 28-27 (OT)

In a game that easily lived up to its pregame hype, the Mustangs blocked an extra point in overtime to secure a win over Columbine. Now they can virtually clinch the league title with another win over Fairview.

Next: at Fairview
#3 Columbine (9-3)
Last: Lost to Mullen 28-27 (OT)

The missed extra point in overtime cost the Rebels a chance to move into the second spot in our rankings but more importantly likely prevents them from winning a conference championship.

Next: vs Northglenn
#4 Eaglecrest (11-1)
Last: Beat Rangeview 49-14

An easy win over Aurora rival Rangeview kept the Raptors unbeaten as they're only big school team without a loss. Win number eight could come this week but then the Raptors must deal with Ralston Valley and Arvada West to close out the campaign.

Next: vs Castle View
#5 Grandview (10-2)
Last: Beat Smoky Hill 62-28

The blowout of Smoky Hill handed the Wolves their fourth straight win. Their only loss of the season was against Eaglecrest in week three and that decision keeps them from being ranked higher than fifth. They face another one loss team in week eight.

Next: vs Doherty
