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.

While Trinity (Euless, Texas) and Lowndes (Valdosta, Ga.) maintained their stranglehold on the top two spots in the ESPN RISE FAB 50, Tulsa's Jenks High School saw its stock slip sharply as it dropped from No. 5 to No. 50 after losing in overtime to rival Union. The win gave Union the boost it needed to climb into the rankings, where it starts at No. 43.
