Montana Prep Football Rankings: Oct 14

Class B shakes up, Class AA rankings differ between polls

Several of the top ranked high school teams lost big games last week, which led to big changes to in Class B in the 406mtsports rankings, and some shifts in the Treasure State Media Poll for Class AA.

Bigfork jumped up a class to claim a huge victory over Polson, vaulting the Vikings back into the top of the 406mtsports rankings, however TSMP voters did not view the win the same way. In a top-five matchup, No. 3 Glasgow fell to No. 5 Malta leading to to the Mustangs rising three spots, while Glasgow dropped off the chart in both rankings. Fairfield also suffered a loss to unranked Red Lodge, leading to a drop off one list.

In Class AA, No. 4 Glacier lost to undefeated No. 3 Helena, and TSMP voters felt that Bozeman’s 3-1 record warranted more hype than Glacier’s 4-1. Class AA and Class A 406mtsports rankings did not change this week.
