There was a shake-up in the top-5 of the Class AAAAAA football rankings this week after a big weekend of football across the state.

North Gwinnett held on to the No. 1 spot in the weekly football poll this week
after taking this past week off.

The Bulldogs currently sit 2-0 in the polls with wins over Camden County and Grayson.

McEachern also held onto the No. 2 spot in the poll during its bye week.

The Indians also are 2-0 on the season with wins over Brookwood and Lassiter.

The biggest change in the top-5 came at the No. 3 position as Lowndes fell out of the top-10 poll after dropping a 15-14 decision at home to Newton.

Colquitt County jumped from the No. 5 spot to the No. 3 position after defeating Lovejoy 17-13 at home this weekend.

North Cobb stayed in the No. 4 spot in the poll, while Peachtree Ridge entered the top 5.

Both teams had bye weeks this past weekend.

Norcross, Mill Creek and Marietta remained in the top-10, taking the No. 6-8 positions, respectively.

Marietta was the only team in the grouping in action last week, beating Brookwood 44-10 at home.

Valdosta entered the rankings at No. 9 this week, cracking the top-10 with a 30-point victory over Brooks County.

Lovejoy remained in the top-10 in the final spot of the poll after falling to the Packers 17-14.
