Pine Creek is still the king of the Class 4A CHSAANow.com football rankings. The Eagles received 14 of 16 first-place votes this week. This is the last set of regular season rankings, which saw the Eagles hold on to the top spot from start to finish.

The Eagles beat district rival Rampart 35-0 Friday night and have now won 34-straight games.

No new teams were added to this week's 4A poll, and with the exception of a few teams falling or rising one spot, the overall poll was pretty consistent with last week. Regular season play for 4A ends this week and the playoff bracket will be released on Sunday.

Like Pine Creek, the Pueblo East Eagles also helped on to their place in the 3A rankings. For the first time this season, however, they don't have Fort Morgan right behind them. Roosevelt climbed to No. 2 and Fort Morgan fell to No. 3, despite a 56-7 win over Elizabeth that kept them undefeated on the year.

The 3A rankings did see the addition of two new teams as D'Evelyn (No. 9) and Discovery Canyon (No. 10) made the cut this week.

Regular season play for 3A also ends this week and the 16-team playoff bracket will be released on Sunday.

The state playoff brackets in 5A, 2A, 1A, 8-man and 6-man were released on Sunday, and as such, they will not have any further rankings this season.

The rankings, voted upon by coaches and select media members, are the official polls of the Association. These will serve as the final polls of the regular season.

Complete rankings are below.
