Daily List: Odds of earning the at-large playoff berth in AAAAAAA


The Maxwell Ratings each week will provide odds of teams receiving the at-large playoff berth in Class AAAAAAA. Region 1 has only four schools (Camden County, Colquitt County, Lowndes, and Tift County), and a new GHSA bylaw allows only three teams to get automatic playoff berths in four-team regions. The final, or 32nd, berth will go to the team with the best GHSA power rating among the seven fifth-place finishers and the No. 4 team from Region 1. Here are Maxwell's odds on who'll get the wild card. The regions are listed in parentheses.
