615 Preps Power 15 – Week 10

Another week, another contender tried and failed to knock Oakland off its perch atop the Power 15 board.

Riverdale was the latest challenger to succumb to the undefeated Patriots, dropping two spots following a 24-7 loss.

Beginning this week, one spot is reserved for a small class team that’s a state contender, and undefeated Trousdale County – our coverage area’s only other unbeaten team – gets the first crack at it.
