Trib HSSN State Football Rankings for Nov. 2, 2021
Tuesday, November 2, 2021 | 7:43 PM
Four teams lost their grip and slipped out of the Trib HSSN weekly state football rankings in the final week of the regular season.
Gone are McDowell in Class 6A, Valley View in 4A, North Schuylkill in 3A and Serra Catholic in 2A, replaced by Garnet Valley, Northwestern Lehigh, Scranton Prep and Windber on the brink of the district postseason.
Now that the regular season is over, most of the ranked teams take to the field this weekend with playoff fever.
However, it is also bye season, as some teams have earned a week off and will wait until Week 11 to begin what they hope is a golden journey.
In all, 11 ranked teams will enjoy a postseason bye week, including three each in 4A and A.
