The Associated Press released its final poll of the high school football season and there were few changes from the previous week.

The top-ranked team in each of the six classes remained the same.

While some teams changed spots, only four new teams entered the respective Top 10s.

There are 18 unbeaten teams, just one in Class 2A while 1A has the most at five.

Two of Washington’s opponents — Solon and Oskaloosa — remained in the top 10 of 3A with Oskaloosa moving up one spot since Sioux City Heelan lost.
