Surprising results last Friday have opened the door for two new schools to debut in this week's KSL Coaches' Poll.

Northridge moves from unranked to 4th after a 4th quarter rally gave them a 13-9 victory over cross-town rival Layton and a 3-0 start to the season. Jordan is also 3-0 after a 63-21 win over Sky View. The Knights and Beetdiggers moved into the top five after Lone Peak was stunned at home by previously winless Highland and Hunter was held to just 3 points in a loss to Brighton.

Bingham continues to be a unanimous pick at No. 1 followed by Davis and Cottonwood who are both off to 3-0 starts.
