The South Dakota Prep Media Poll for September 8, 2020, sees the Roosevelt Rough Riders as the top team in 11AAA, and one person ranking Yankton over Pierre in 11AA.

Roosevelt powered through the Lincoln Patriots 42-19 as part of the President's Bowl this past weekend. The win moved Roosevelt to 2-0 on the season and the unanimous top pick in the poll this week for 11AAA. Brandon Valley beat O'Gorman, while Harrisburg moved to 2-0 following a win over Washington.

One person in the media poll voted Yankton as the top team in Class 11AA this week. The Bucks defeated Spearfish and Dakota Valley by a combined score of 129-25 in the first two weeks of the season. The favorite in the class, Pierre, is out to an 2-0 start with wins over Sturgis and West Central. Either way, Pierre and Yankton will meet this week for the right to be ranked top in the class.

No changes to the top-ranked teams across the entire board this week. Tea Area (11A), Winner (11B), Viborg-Hurley (9AA), Canistota/Freeman (9A), and Wolsey-Wessington (9B) continue to be the top of each of their classes.
