A closer look at this week's power ratings, Landmark and Twiggs new No. 1's

Now that we have reached the halfway point in the season, it’s time to take a little closer look at the Georgia High School Association/MaxPreps Power Ratings.

Two new teams sit atop the public and private lists this week. On the private side, Landmark Christian rose two spaces into the top spot. Last week’s No. 1, First Presbyterian, was knocked off by Twiggs County and fell to No. 6 this week.

Speaking of Twiggs, the Cobras are the new No. 1 on the public side, swapping places with last week’s top team, McIntosh County Academy. Twiggs’ 29-17 win over FPD gave it more points than McIntosh County Academy’s 31-12 win over Savannah Christian.
