Prep football on TV
KJZZ kicked off its televised coverage of prep football with games Thursday and Friday. The station has plans to do 27 more games, culminating with the 3AA, 4A and 5A state championship triple-header on Nov. 27 at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
For a complete schedule, go to www.KJZZ.com. The station will televise Friday’s Jordan at East game.
National prep games?
The UHSAA board of trustees will hear information on a proposed four-team January national high school football tournament called the Paragon State Bowl Series when it meets Thursday.
While the Fremont girls’ basketball team participated last year in the basketball championship series, it would likely be a rare year when Utah had a national top-four football team. For example, in the national preseason football rankings, Bingham is ranked 23rd by USA Today and 56th by MaxPreps.
State football rankings
In preseason football rankings released before the first week of play, MaxPreps ranked Bingham, Timpview, Brighton, East, Riverton, Jordan, American Fork, Herriman, Woods Cross and Pleasant Grove as its top 10 teams.
