UIL to Release Conference Cutoff Numbers

AUSTIN— The University Interscholastic League will release the conference cut-off numbers on Friday, November 20.  It is expected the numbers will be out around 8:45am.  You can be sure that Lone Star Gridiron will share them as soon as possible.!

The numbers will provide the range of enrollment for each of the six conferences for the 2016-2018 reclassification and realignment. The League will also release the division cutoff numbers for the conferences that have a split-conference format in football.

For the 2016-18 alignment, the UIL will have six classifications. Conference 6A will consist of a minimum of 220 schools and a maximum of 245 schools participating in football. Conferences 2A through 5A will consist of a number of schools so that the enrollment ratio in grades 9-12 between the largest school in the conference and the smallest school in the conference is approximately 2.0. The UIL plans to put approximately 200 schools each in Conference 2A through 5A. Conference 1A, which will include schools playing six-man football, will consist of all schools with enrollments of less than 105.
