There was one loss — the No. 10 Brooks County Trojans were beat 24-14 by AAAAA’s unranked Thomas County Central — which should pave the way for a new team to enter the rankings.
It was a brief return to the polls for the Trojans (3-2), who entered at No. 10 last week after beating then-No. 8 Dublin 13-10. Earlier in the season they were ranked as high as No. 5 before falling 37-7 to A-public's No. 1 Clinch County. On Friday, they fell behind TCC 17-0 after the first quarter and never recovered. Tim Morse has two stories on the game for the Thomasville Times-Enterprise, which can be read here and here.
