GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Eight weeks are in the books for the 2019 Florida high school football season and the FHSAA has given us another round of updated RPI rankings meaning we are another week closer to the playoffs.

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.

PROJECTED SEEDS

Top 6

No. 1 Pensacola Catholic
No. 2 Baldwin
No. 3 Episcopal
No. 4 Florida High
No. 5 Trinity Catholic
No. 6 Trinity Christian (Jacksonville)

PROJECTED REGIONAL QUARTERFINAL PAIRINGS

No. 1 Pensacola Catholic – BYE
No. 5 Trinity Catholic at No. 4 Florida High
No. 6 Trinity Christian (Jacksonville) at No. 3 Episcopal
No. 2 Baldwin- BYE

QUICK THOUGHTS: A lot of shuffling this week between the No. 2 to No.  6 seeds with Baldwin moving up to the No. 2 seed while Florida High feel two spots to the No. 4 seed. Episcopal now has the No. 3 seed while Trinity Catholic has the No. 5 seed. Trinity Christian is barely hanging on to the No. 6 seed and will need to win out to secure a playoff spot. A loss this week or next week could seal their playoff fate.
