Every team listed is now officially either a No. 1 seed or high seed in its section playoffs. The big change is putting Camarillo on the board for the CIF Southern Section Division IV playoffs. We also are agreeing with the CIF North Coast Section seeding of Clayton Valley (Concord) at the top of its D2 playoff bracket. In addition, we have some changes involving three of the CCS divisions, and have gone with an All-Orange County matchup in one of the lower divisions.

Note: For these bowl projections, we are using the team that is either seeded first or ranked highest in our own state rankings as the placeholder for that section’s playoff champion. This year, the CIF will no longer be considering runner-ups in a so-called Open Division. This has a much bigger impact in the north than in the south since the sections sending Open Division runner-ups were from the CCS and NCS (although L.A. City also was doing it). Only section champions are eligible to be in a CIF regional championship. The CIF also has the option of using any three teams from the CIF Central Section in the north or south. We used the same distribution as last year for these possible matchups but it could be different.
