More than a dozen teams from the Cedar Valley and northeast Iowa are featured in this week's prep football rankings, released by the Associated Press on Monday (Oct. 17, 2016).

Entering the final week of the regular season, five area teams remain undefeated. They include Waterloo West, North Fayette Valley, Denver, Gladbrook-Reinbeck and Turkey Valley.

North Fayette Valley is the only unbeaten team state-wide in Class-2A. The TigerHawks kept their grip on the No. 1 ranking with a 56-21 victory over La Porte City Union Friday night. The loss was the first of the season for the Knights, who fell one spot from No. 2 to No. 3 following the setback.

Also ranked among the Class-2A top 10 are New Hampton, Crestwood and Dike-New Hartford.

In Class-4A, Waterloo West jumped one spot to No. 4 with a 41-6 win over Mason City. The Wahawks will clinch the District 5 championship and wrap-up their first perfect regular season since 1991 with a victory over No. 5 Cedar Rapids Washington Friday night.

The other unbeaten teams kept their positions in the six-class poll. Denver stayed at No. 3 in Class-1A, Gladbrook-Reinbeck remained at No. 2 in Class-A and Turkey Valley stayed at No. 2 in 8-player football.

Statewide, there are 22 squads with perfect records.

The other rated teams from the area are West Delaware (No. 10, Class-3A), East Buchanan (No. 8, Class-A), Don Bosco (No. 5, 8-player) and Central Community (No. 8, 8-player).
