Except for Lakeville South remaining No. 1 in the latest High School Football America Minnesota Top 10, the rest of the statewide rankings receive a good shake-up this week.

Causing the shuffle in the latest rankings, powered by NFL Play Football, was Centennial’s 6-0 defeat of former No. 2 Wayzata. That win brings the Cougars into the Top 10 at No. 6 and drops Wayzata five spots to No. 7.

Minnetonka also makes its first appearance this year at No. 8 after beating St. Michael-Albertville 23-20. SMA drops three spots from No. 6 to No. 9.

This week’s big game will be at No. 3 Eden Prairie where the Eagles will host Shakopee, which jumps four spots this week to No. 4.
