Upsets can shock the world, and wreak havoc on rankings — and that is evident in The Newton Kansan/GateHouse Kansas AVCTL 2018 Football Power Poll entering week two of the season.

 

Newton, then ranked 11th, went on the road to pull an upset over Buhler, then ranked fifth, 34-26 in week one action. Newton moved up to sixth in the poll; Buhler tumbled to 12th.

 

Wichita Collegiate took a tumble as well, after getting shut out 32-0 by Wellington. Collegiate fell from 12th to 20th while Wellington rose from 22nd to 17th.

 

Derby claimed the top spot in the power poll this week after hammering non-league foe Garden City 49-6.

 

Players to watch this week:

 

Andover (0-1) sophomore Eli Fahnestock accounted for 204 yards of total offense in the season opener against Great Bend. “He's just a sophomore but he's great and started all year as a freshman,” pollsters wrote. He and the Trojans will take on Maize South this week.

 

Buhler (0-1) junior Austin Gentry showed skill on both side of the ball last week, with two receiving touchdowns and an 88-yard interception return for a touchdown against Newton. This week Buhler heads to El Dorado.

 

El Dorado (1-0) senior Braden Morgan led the Wildcats with 202 rushing yards and three touchdowns in week one. He and the Wildcats will host Buhler.
