We're getting down to the final games of the season, so let's see what the Des Moines Register, Cedar Rapids Gazette, Radio Iowa, and the AP have to say about who they think are the best football teams in the state. Once again, we start with the composite rankings (10 points for each first-place ranking, 9 for second, etc, etc).

Another AP oddity: a first-place vote for Columbus Community, ahead of West Hancock and Grundy Center, a team not even ranked by the newspapers.
