GAINESVILLE, Fla. – With seven weeks of the 2019 season already in the books, the FHSAA has released its first RPI rankings for football that will determine the playoff brackets coming up in just a few weeks.

As such this update provides the entire state a glimpse of what the potential playoff matchups could be looking like in early November, but remember things change, even with four weeks to go.

In Classes 5A-8A, district record was taken into consideration except on certain exceptions which are noted.

QUICK THOUGHTS: Univesity Christian appears to be the clear cut top team in this region so far. Looking at the rest of the region, I think there is going to be a lot of fluctuation with the seeding over the next few weeks.

QUICK THOUGHTS: Cambridge Christian is the top team in the region despite getting upset by Seffner Christian last week. I really don’t think much is decided for most of the seeds in this region and the next few weeks will help clear things up.

QUICK THOUGHTS: If anyone wants to say that the formula is not working, they need to look again. Champagnat Catholic is the best team in this region and it is showing here. The thing to keep in mind is that their opponents are also winning games they are supposed to which is helping the cause. When opponents don’t win games they are supposed to, it can take a hit on the ranking. Still, a few more weeks to go so anything can change here.
