Heading into the last week of the regular season, Windsor is back in the Class 4A CHSAANow.com football rankings.

The Wizards found themselves trailing Skyline 13-0 after the first quarter on Friday, but scored 28 points in the second and went on to win the game 35-27.

They reenter the rankings at No. 9 this week and are the only new team to break into the 4A top 10.

Denver South held on to the No. 1 spot this week thanks to a 49-0 win over Standley Lake.

In fact, the top eight teams from last week's rankings all held their ground going into the final week of the regular season.

In 5A, Pomona also held on to the No. 1 spot after taking down then-No. 10 Chaparral 40-7 on Friday.

Discovery Canyon remained the unanimous No. 1 team in 3A. But Silver Creek made a one-spot jump to come in at No. 2.

The Raptors won a 10-7 defensive battle over Longmont on Friday night.

Holy Family also jumped one spot this week to land at No. 7.
