Week five Mississippi Preps Poll: South Panola on the rise

The Associated Press released its week five edition of the Mississippi high school football polls on Tuesday, as voted by various media members throughout the state. As with each week thus far, both Oxford and Lafayette landed in the top 10 schools in the state. Water Valley fell from No. 5 within the Class 3A ranks.

Oxford and Lafayette took last week off, a much needed bye week. They’ll return to action, both at home, this Friday. Water Valley went to Calhoun City last Friday night, losing a surprisingly low-scoring game in the process. Below are the full state rankings following week four.
