6. Solon (10-0)
The Comets scored on a 26-yard run by Chris Humphrey on the last play of regulation and then successfully converted the 2-point conversion to force OT where they won 31-28 over host Strongsville. Whew is right. Still undefeated, Solon begins postseason play Saturday when it hosts Brecksville Broadview-Heights (7-3) in a Region 1 quarterfinal. Previous: 7

7. Middletown (10-0)
It’s been a long wait but its finally over in Middletown where the Middies are 10-0 for the second time ever and first since 1934. Middletown also won a share of the Greater Miami Conference title for the first time since 1990 with its 32-21 win over Princeton.
