Football - Valley Vs. Oakley

Oakley’s Chandler Jones runs the ball during their conference matchup against Valley Friday night, Oct. 20, 2017, at Oakley High School.

DREW NASH, TIMES-NEWS

For the second straight week, No. 2- and No. 4-ranked Snake River Conference teams will face each other.

Oakley is No. 2 again in 1A Division I of the state football media poll, and it hosts rival Raft River on Friday in the regular season finale. Raft River moved from unranked to No. 4 in this week’s poll.

Valley was No. 4 in 1A-DI last week but dropped from the top five a week later after losing to Oakley 22-14.

1A-DI is the only classification that hasn’t wrapped up the regular season yet. The others open the playoffs this week, and a few ranked teams look to keep their seasons going.

Declo (2A) and Carey (1A Division II) remained at the top of their respective classifications, and both play home playoff games this week. Gooding, the third-ranked team in 3A, has a first-round bye.

Minico also has a bye, and it received one 4A vote. Kimberly received four points in the 3A poll.
