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.

There's another Trinity coming up fast as Trinity of Louisville, Ky., takes down previous No. 18 St. Xavier of Cincinnati 17-6, and moves from unranked to No. 22 in this week's FAB 50. The Shamrocks have their annual showdown game coming up in two weeks against archrival St. Xavier of Louisville, which this week is No. 14 in the nation.
