Sorry to all, but until Jordan loses to an instate school, they're the best team in the state. They are currently ranked #25 in the nation. Here's your top ten for the state of Utah:

1. Jordan (66.7)
2. Timpview (58.1)
3. East (53.8)
4. Syracuse (51.9)
5. Lone Peak (45.8)
6. Alta (45.6)
7. Highland (44.6)
8. Mountain Crest (44.1)
9. Bingham (43.2)
10. Logan (42.6)

@Sportfanatic - you might upset a few people!!! lol

It's hard to accurately rank the top 25 teams in the state when you have 6 classifications and many teams will never play each other head to head.

Also, does anyone know how the rankings are calculated? Is it coaches only, media only, coaches and media combined or is it a numerical equation??? This would in understanding why teams are ranked where they are.

In regards to East: East is a strong team that has made the playoffs the last 3 years and lost to the eventual champion the last 2 years. The last 2 years and also this year...East enters the season with a lot of hype as the "team to beat in Utah and 4A". However, that hype end at the hands of Logan and Timpview and until East wins a championship...questions will remain. The East win over Alta was impressive...but only time will tell how impressive depending on Alta's season. Alta has Lone Peak this week and could easily lose and actually might enter region play at 0-4.

Preseason and Week 1 rankings are always difficult. They get easier as the season and playoffs progress!!!
