A loss by Zachary last week allowed undefeated Karr to move into the top spot in Class 5A in the LSWA statewide football poll heading into the fourth week of Louisiana football action.

St. Augustine (3-0) joined the 5A poll and leaped over undefeated Byrd to No. 8 in the poll. North DeSoto (3-0) and Belle Chasse (3-0) entered the Class 4A poll for the first time and tied for the 10th spot. E.D. White (3-0) took over the top spot in Class 3A, while St. James joined 3A for the first time.

In Class 2A, Newman (3-0) moved into the No. 2 slot behind No. 1 Many (3-0), setting up a showdown between the powerhouses Friday in Many. There were no changes in the 1A poll.
