There’s a new No. 1 in the High School Football America Georgia Top 10. Buford moves to the top of the heap after former No. 1 Archer saw its season come to an end Friday with a 12-7 loss to Colquitt County, which jumps three spots to No. 5 this week, plus returned to our national Top 100.
This week, Buford, ranked No. 49 in the nation, will put its No. 1 ranking on-the-line against No. 9 Rome, which beat the Wolves last year 16-7 for the 5A state championship.
Speaking of rematches, Colquitt County will try to reverse its 42-25 loss to Brookwood on September 15. The two meet in the 7A state semifinals. The winner will get the winner in the game between No. 4 North Gwinnett and No. 8 McEachern, which makes its first appearance in the Top 10 this year.
