IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - For the second straight week there is a new number one team in the 4A football state media poll. Blackfoot takes over the top spot after the top two teams from last week lost on Friday. The Broncos improved to 3-0 with a win over Snake River.

Skyline swapped spots with Blackfoot. The Grizzlies lost to the defending 5A state champion Rigby Trojans.

The loss dropped Skyline down from one down to three. Skyline still picked up four first place votes. The Grizzlies visit Blackfoot on Friday.

Pocatello entered the top five after beating Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The Indians are 3-0.

There wasn't much change elsewhere in the week 3 poll. Rigby tied Rocky Mountain for number two in the 5A poll. The Trojans were third last week.

Highland held at number five after beating Century. Both the Rams and the Pocatello will be ranked for the Black and Blue Bowl this Friday at Iron Horse Stadium.

Sugar-Salem stayed solidly number one in the 3A poll. The Diggers got all 13 first place votes. They host Marsh Valley on Friday.

West Side and North Fremont held firm in the top two spots in the 2A poll. Firth jumped up a spot to number four. Aberdeen slipped down from three to five after a road loss to South Fremont on Friday.
