Ranking surviving teams, headed into the regional round of the 2019 MHSAA football postseason

By: MATTHEW B. MOWERY, November 12, 2019, 4:57 pm

With district championships having been handed out, and two rounds of the postseason behind us, it’s as good a time as any to revisit our rankings, looking at the top remaining teams. The only rule? You have to still be alive to be eligible for a ranking. As we did in the regular season, we’ve divided the teams into two parts — the big schools (Division 1-3) and the smaller schools (D4-8). And, as always, these are just for fun. The real rankings are established on the field, over the next three weeks of play.

Top 15 big schools (D1-D3) left in the 2019 postseason 

1 Muskegon (9-0) — D3 — (Final RS ranking: 1)
