The UHSAA released its first RPI rankings of the season for high school football on Monday, after having released RPI rankings for volleyball and girls soccer earlier this season.

In some sports, area teams are in more favorable positions than in other sports.

In 6A girls soccer, for instance, seven of the eight 6A schools in Weber and Davis counties are in the top 16 of the rankings, which guarantees a home playoff game either in the first or second round of the state tournament.

In 5A football, Northridge has the highest ranking of any Region 5 team at 11, which would guarantee nothing more than a first-round home playoff game.

Below are the latest RPI standings in football, girls soccer and volleyball. State tournaments for the major team sports begin in early October.

State tournament locations are expected to return to all of their traditional venues (universities and such) after the COVID-19 pandemic moved events to individual high schools last year.
