North Hall will face Buford in a Class AAA top 10 showdown on Friday in Buford.
One area team fell out and another area jumped in to the latest Associated Press prep football rankings, released on Tuesday.

After suffering a shock, 46-41 loss to Loganville last week, Gainesville fell out of the Class AAAAA top 10. The Red Elephants (7-2, 6-1 Region 8-AAAAA) had risen to fifth place and will look for some redemption for the defeat this week against rival Flowery Branch in a battle for the 8-AAAAA crown at The Branch that will be broadcast live on 102.9 FM. Both the Red Elephants and Falcons (7-2, 7-0) are receiving votes in the poll.

Meanwhile, North Hall has climbed into the Class AAA top 10, coming in at ninth this week, as the Trojans (8-1, 6-0 Region 7-AAA) prepare for a top 10 showdown with No. 3 Buford this Friday in a game that will be broadcast live on WDUN AM 550. North Hall clinched the 7-AAA crown last week for its first region title since 2007 but will face its toughest challenge of the season so far against a fired-up Wolves program. Buford (6-3, 4-2) will not get a chance to play for the 7-AAA title due to forfeiting two region wins but will be looking to make a statement in the contest.

Meanwhile, Jefferson maintained its spot at No. 9 in Class AA. The Dragons (8-1, 6-0 Region 8-AA) clinched the Region 8-AA title last week for their first crown since 2009 and will play host to Union County (6-3, 3-3) on Friday.

And in Class AAAAAA, North Gwinnett climbed one spot to No. 5 after hammering Mountain View 49-7 last week. The Bulldogs (8-1, 6-1 Region 7-AAAAAA) have sewn up the No. 2 seed from Region 7-AAAAAA and will travel to face Peachtree Ridge (4-5, 4-3) on Friday.
