Glance at Week 10 football playoff games for Class 4A, and possible seeding position

This weekend, football teams from around the state will be participating in games that will determine which 16 teams will advance to the state tournaments in five classifications.

Once those 16 teams have been set, a seeding committee will meet on Sunday to seed the state bracket.

There is no way to tell how those committees will place teams in the bracket. But we can use various state ranking systems to project how the committees might place teams.

So we’ve constructed aggregate state rankings using six different state rankings — three “human” rankings; and three “formula” rankings.

  • Associated Press – rankings by state media members
  • Scorebook Live – rankings by coaches
  • Cascadia Preps – rankings by Ryland Spencer, who travels the state watching prep football
  • Score Czar — ranking formula based on points scored and points allowed by teams
  • Max Preps — ranking formula based on wins and losses.
  • Evans Rankings — ranking formula based on a mix of wins/losses and points scored/allowed.

In Class 4A, there are 33 teams still alive for the 16 state berths.

We used all six rankings to come up with the top-10 aggregate rankings. But because the “human” rankings only rank the top-10, to rank teams 11 through 33, we only used the three “formula” rankings, which rank every team in the state.

Here are this weekend’s matchups, with each teams aggregate ranking. We will update this list as results come in. When teams are eliminated, other teams’ rankings will be adjusted until teams will be finally ranked 1 to 16.
