The final PIAA District 6 football rankings were released, and Ligonier Valley (10-0) is seeded second behind returning Class 2A champion Richland.

Bellwood-Antis (10-0) finished third, and once-beaten Penns Valley (9-1) ended up fourth.

Richland defeated Ligonier Valley in last year’s championship game, and both could be on a collision course for another meeting.

State College (9-1) stayed No. 1 in Class 6A. Hollidaysburg (6-4) remained the top team in 5A, and Bellefonte (8-2) stayed points ahead of Clearfield (8-2) in 4A and Bald Eagle Area (7-3) is No. 1 in 3A.
