Warren central slides in AP football poll

Warren Central slid down in one poll, and out in another in the latest Mississippi Associated Press high school football rankings Tuesday.

Warren Central (7-1) fell out of the Class 6A poll following its 31-16 loss to Clinton last week. The Vikings stayed in the Overall Top 10, but dropped from No. 3 to No. 8.

Warren Central will host South Panola this Friday at 7 p.m.

Oak Grove (7-0) remained No. 1 in both the Overall and Class 6A polls. Oxford (7-0) was No. 2 in both polls.

In Class 6A, Starkville, D’Iberville and Northwest Rankin rounded out the top five.

In the Overall poll, Oak Grove and Oxford were followed by Picyaune, Madison-Ridgeland Academy, Starkville, D’Iberville, West Jones, Warren Central, Neshoba Central and Ridgeland.

Picayune (8-0) was ranked No. 1 in the Class 5A poll for the first time this season, after the previous No. 1 lost for the third week in a row. West Jones is No. 2, Neshoba Central No. 3, and Ridgeland and Lafayette rounded out the top five.

Other top-ranked teams were Nanih Waiya in Class 1A, Taylorsville in 2A, Magee in 3A, Louisville in 4A, and Madison-Ridgeland Academy in the MAIS poll.
