For the first time since the KSL Coaches Poll debuted in 2010, Bingham is unranked.

The Miners dropped out of the top five after falling to Lone Peak in a 21-17 Thursday thriller. The defending 5A champion Knights move back into the top five where they began the season.

Jordan showed very well against California powerhouse St. John Bosco on Saturday but came up one play short in the Xfinity challenge. Jordan still remains at No. 1 in the poll.

Top Five Games to Watch This Week
Mountain Crest at No. 3 Logan 7pm Friday
Not only is this an intense rivalry game but there is a good chance the winner of this game will claim the Region 5 title and a No. 1 seed in the 4A playoffs. This same scenario existed at this time last year when Logan went to Mountain Crest and took care of the Mustangs on their way to a state title. Can the Mustangs earn payback on the Grizzlies home field?No. 1 East at No. 4 Bountiful 7pm Friday
Can anyone in 4A beat East? They have steamrolled 4A competition by an average of 41 points. Bountiful is the next team to get their shot at the Leopards who can clinch at least a tie for the region title with a win.No. 2 Juan Diego at Wasatch 7pm Friday
Juan Diego looks unbeatable right now. They have given up just 10 points in the last three games while averaging 46 per game. That three game stretch includes a game at 5A Granger. They look to be the biggest challenger to Hurricane for a state title but they can't overlook a very talented and explosive Wasatch team on Friday night. The Wasps have scored at least four touchdowns in six of their seven games this season led by quarterback James Delacenserie. He has 25 touchdown passes and only three interceptions this season.Kearns at Hunter 7pm Friday
There is still two weeks left after this week but this west side battle between the Cougars and Wolverines may ultimately decide the Region 2 title. Hunter is coming off an impressive win over rival Granger. Kearns has played a very tough schedule that includes games against Jordan, Northridge, Pleasant Grove and Riverton which may have prepared them for a region title run. No. 1 Duchesne at No. 3 Rich 4pm Friday
Duchesne and Rich have had some great battles over the years. One or both teams have reached the 1A state championship game in five of the last six seasons. Duchesne has the longest winning streak in the state and third longest in state history at 28 games. Rich will try to end that streak on their home field.

Alta also remains at No. 3 despite falling to John Bosco from New Jersey in the same Xfinity challenge on Saturday.

Syracuse remains No. 2 in the poll after winning their much-hyped battle with No. 5 Northridge in a game that came down to one play late in the 4th quarter. The Knights still remain at No. 5 despite the loss.

East continues to hold strong at No. 1 in the latest 4A poll. Timpview remains at No. 2 after another impressive region win. Logan is No. 3 as they prepare for their huge region clash with rival Mountain Crest. Bountiful is No. 4 ahead of their huge region clash with East.

Timpanogos moves into the top five for the first time thanks to a 6-1 start. It's the best start in the 17-year history of the program. Their only loss is to No. 3 Timpview.

Stansbury's 12-6 win over Desert Hills impressed the coaches enough that they moved them up one spot this week to No. 3. Hurricane survived an upset bid from Pine View in overtime to remain No. 1. Juan Diego remains No. 2 followed by Stansbury, Dixie and Spanish Fork.

2A remains unchanged with San Juan at No. 1 followed by Manti, South Summit, Millard and Beaver. San Juan at Beaver looks to be the game of the week in the 2A ranks.

Duchesne passed their test against Summit Academy and in the process keep their No. 1 spot in 1A. They have now won 28 games in a row which gives them the third longest winning streak in state history. They are followed in the poll by Monticello, Rich, Summit Academy and Altamont which moves into the top five this week.
