Here's a look at how the teams in the SBLive Mississippi Power 10 rankings fared Friday night:
No. 1 Brandon beat Warren Central 21-3
On a night when the Brandon offense struggled to find it’s groove, the Landon Varnes-to-Lester Miller connection proved crucial. The defense played its most complete game of the season as the Bulldogs rolled to 5-0.
No. 2 Madison Central beat Grenada 21-14
Trailing by seven in the fourth quarter, Grenada picked off a Vic Sutton pass and returned it to the Madison Central 19-yard line. But the Jaguar defense stood tall, forcing a turnover on downs to preserve the win for Madison Central (4-1).
No. 3 Ocean Springs beat D’Iberville 40-0
Alabama commit Bray Hubbard tossed four touchdown passes and ran for two more scores as the Greyhounds (6-0) poured it on against the Warriors.
No. 4 Picayune beat Vancleave 49-7
It feels like a broken record, but Dante Dowdell went for 240 yards and three touchdowns on 13 carries to help the defending 5A Champs to another blowout win. The Maroon Tide moved to 6-0 with the victory.
No. 5 Tupelo beat Oxford 35-0
Jeremiah Harrell passed for 323 yards and three touchdowns as the Golden Wave (6-0) swamped No. 10 Oxford to move to 2-0 in Region 2-6A.
No. 6 Warren Central lost to Brandon 21-3
The Vikings (4-1) led it 3-0 after the first quarter, but they turned it over twice in the red zone and had a bad second quarter defensively, giving up three touchdowns on three drives.
No. 7 Starkville lost to Clinton 35-28
Arrows tailback Jakobe Calvin tagged the Starkville defense for 195 yards on 19 carries and scored twice to help Clinton get past the Yellowjackets (4-2). Star quarterback Trey Petty was knocked out of the game in the second half for the second week in a row.
No. 8 Louisville beat Northeast Lauderdale 42-0
The Wildcats (5-1) rolled to a 28-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back en route to a big blowout win to move to 1-0 in Region 4-4A.
No. 9 Itawamba AHS beat Tishomingo County 48-0
Zion Ashby, Cooper Waddle and Isaac Smith all returned interceptions for touchdowns as the Indians (6-0) rolled again.
No. 10 Oxford lost to Tupelo 35-0
It’s back to the drawing board for the Chargers (3-2) who had played well since their season-opening loss to top-ranked Brandon until Friday night. They had just 91 total yards in the first half as the Golden Wave rolled to a 28-0 lead.
