JJHuddle Power Poll Division IV

Two teams in last week’s JJHuddle Division IV Power Poll lost – No. 4 Coshocton and No. 6 Triway. The Redskins and Titans have therefore fallen out of this week’s Top 10. Who took their place? And who moved where?


1. Kettering Alter (2-0)
The Knights take a 32-game on field winning streak into this Friday’s monster showdown with D-I No. 4 Centerville. It’s the first time these two teams have played since 1967 and the series is only signed for this ONE game. The Knights have won 57 of their last 59 overall on the field (had to forfeit two wins to open 2008 season). Previous: 1

2. Kenton (2-0)
The Wildcats beat Van Wet 70-34 as junior QB Maty Mauk threw for 540 yards. In two games he’s tossed nine TDs. Next up for K-Town is a trip to Lima Shawnee. Previous: 2
