Week 7 sees little movement in rankings

10/14/2008

Editor's note: ESPN will release the ESPN RISE FAB 50 national football rankings to start each week of the regular season. The rankings combine three previously independent polls and are compiled by a panel of voters, including Doug Huff (Wheeling, W. Va.); Jon Mahoney (Brooklyn, N.Y.); Sheldon Shealer (Myersville, Md.); Brian Stumpf (Torrance, Calif.) and Mark Tennis
(Stockton, Calif.). Kynon Codrington, Christopher Lawlor, Mike Loveday, Bob Masajo and Paul Muyskens also contributed to the poll.

It was a bad weekend for Southlake Carroll (Texas) grad Chase Daniel, whose University of Missouri football team lost to Oklahoma State. His alma mater also lost in a 57-53 shootout in double overtime against Coppell. The loss ended the Dragons' 38-game district winning streak and caused the team to fall out of this week's ESPN RISE FAB 50 national rankings.

Southlake Carroll was the only FAB 50-ranked team to lose and be replaced in this week's rankings. Voters went with unbeaten South Carolina school South Pointe of Rock Hill instead. Eight other schools appeared in the FAB 50 on at least one ballot, so it was a close call.

Results based on games through Oct. 11.
