2. Princeton (21) — The Tigers (2-1) suffered their first loss in overtime at Capital. But they've already won as many as they did last year, and will look for more at Hurricane on Friday.

3. Woodrow WIlson (13) — The Flying Eagles (1-2) suddenly went quiet on offense against a strong Huntington defense. They'll have an off week to get things fixed before hosting Riverside on Sept. 27.

Class AA

1. Bluefield (24) — The Beavers (1-1) were off last week after splitting rivalry games, beating Graham (Va.) and losing to Princeton. They'll host Gate City (Va.) on Friday.

2. Wyoming East (18) — The Warriors (3-0) continued to roll with a trouncing of Sherman. Up next is a battle of Class AA undefeateds on the road at Summers County on Friday.

3. Nicholas County (15) — The Grizzlies (2-1) have won two straight, beating Poca and East Fairmont after a loss to Greenbrier West in the opener. They'll be at Oak Hill on Friday.

3. Valley (14) — The Greyhounds (2-0) came back from an early off week with a 40-20 win over Van. This week, Valley, and its defense which has given up just 28 points in two games, hosts Clay County on Friday.

4. Fayetteville (13) — The Pirates (2-1), coming off a winless 2012 season and a loss to Wahama in the opener, have outscored Midland Trail and Richwood 113-6 in the last two games. They'll be at Meadow Bridge on Friday.
