Raiders remain outside of top 10 in AP football poll

Navarre is on the outside of the top 10 in the 6A Associated Press football poll despite rallying for a 42-28 road win over Niceville last Friday night at Eagle Stadium.

The Raiders (9-1), who received 16 votes last week, only had eight votes in the latest edition of the poll. Gulf Breeze (9-1), which had six votes last week, received nine this week after going on the road and beating Crestview 37-13 in its regular-season finale.

Navarre and Gulf Breeze could meet in the second round of the playoffs Nov. 18 if both teams take care of business Friday night in their opening round games against Escambia and Tate, respectively. The Raiders were beaten 31-28 by the Dolphins in week eight.

Mainland (9-0) remains the No. 1 team in the state in 6A and picked up 10 first-place votes. Second-ranked Miami Northwestern (9-1) received four first-place votes.
