Last week we picked on the person that ranked Yankton #1 in Class 11AA over Pierre. We apologize. They were right. Here's where the rankings stand after four weeks.

Yankton routed Pierre 52-29 last Friday night to secure the top spot in the Class 11AA rankings. The Bucks are now 3-0 on the season and have a date with Vermillion this week. Pierre will move on to travel to the top-ranked team in Class A in Tea Area.

Class 11AAA remains consistent at the top with the Rough Riders controlling the class. Roosevelt shutout O'Gorman 48-0 at O'Gorman's annual Dakota Bowl event. Brandon Valley and Harrisburg remain behind Roosevelt. Lincoln, who was unranked last week, jumped into the top-five after a 41-0 win over Washington.

Sioux Falls Christian has entered the rankings in Class 11A. The Chargers are 1-1 on the season with a win over Beresford and a loss to 11AA's Mitchell. Tea Area had no issues with West Central defeating them 41-0.
