Undefeated Fyffe remains atop latest 3A rankings

As they took their bye week, the undefeated Fyffe Red Devils remained atop Class 3A in the latest edition of the Alabama Sports Writers Association state high school football rankings.

The rankings, released Wednesday, had the 4-0 Red Devils holding strong as 3A’s No. 1 team after they notched their 49th consecutive victory with a 56-0 drubbing of Brindlee Mountain in a Region 7 contest at Paul Benefield Stadium on Sept. 16.

Fyffe, who received 21 first-place votes in the latest poll, extended its win streak to 62 consecutive regular-season victories and 42 region wins in a row.

Elsewhere in 3A this week, Plainview posted at No. 8, while Geraldine missed out on the top 10 but received votes.

Plainview (3-1 before Friday) visits 5A Crossville on Friday night after coming off its first loss of the season: a 26-20 loss at home against Region 7 rival Geraldine.

Geraldine (3-1 before Friday) visits Saks on Friday night.
