VICTORIA JACOBSEN | The Journal Gazette

Bishop Luers remains the top-ranked football team in Class 2A in both the IFCA coaches and AP media polls this week. The Knights (2-0) received nine of 10 first-place votes in the coaches poll and 13 of 15 in the AP poll. Eastside (2-0) remains No. 7 in Class 2A in both polls. 

East Noble (1-0), whose entire athletic department was on hiatus during last week's game, fell on spot to No. 4 in the coaches poll with one first-place vote, while NE8 rival Leo (2-0) is fifth. Their rankings are reversed in the media poll, where Leo is fourth and East Noble sixth. 

Bishop Dwenger (2-0) remains No. 3 in Class 5A in both polls, while Snider fell three spots to No. 9 in the IFCA poll and two spots to a tie for 10th in the AP poll. 

Homestead (2-0) rose one spot to No. 9 in the Class 6A IFCA poll and three spots to No. 4 in the AP poll. Carroll received votes in the AP poll. 

South Adams (2-0) remains the top-ranked team in the Class A AP poll and the second-ranked team in the IFCA poll. Adams Central (1-1) fell two spots to No. 5 in both polls, while Churubusco (1-1) received votes in both. 

Norwell (2-0) jumped into the Class 3A rankings, coming in at 8th in the AP poll and 10th in the coaches poll. Concordia (1-1) fell a spot to No. 9 in the coaches poll and received votes in the AP poll.
