The opening week of the Missouri high school football season already saw a top-ranked team fall. In Class 4, Carl Junction upset Webb City.

And that paved the way for a new No. 1 — the Kearney Bulldogs.

After winning the Class 4 state championship last season, the Bulldogs will enter the second week of this season with the No. 1 ranking.

The full 14-member media poll panel includes Dion Clisso, PrepsKC; Sam McDowell, The Kansas City Star; Chris Geinosky, The Liberty Tribune; Dave Kvidahl, STLHighschoolsports.com; Jim Powers, High School Sports Caravan; Larry Thornton, KSDK radio; Cameron Teague-Robinson, The Columbia Tribune; Tom Rackers, Jefferson City News-Tribune; Mike Scott, Ozone Sports; Rance Burger, The Springfield News-Leader; Cody Thorn, The St. Joseph News-Press; J.B Connoley, KRES radio; Chris Pobst, Sikeston Standard-Democrat; Matt King, The Daily Journal.
