It's getting closer and closer to our favorite time of year: When you have to win to stay in.
That's right, with each week, more and more states are heading to the playoffs - where a loss not only ends your season but often ends your hopes of being in the RivalsHigh Top 100 for 2010.
So check back all weekend: We'll be here to tell you which schools stayed in and which schools may have fallen out.
Friday's upsets and surprises:
No. 35 Warner Robins (Ga.) Northside was in trouble early and trailed 28-0 at the half to Whitewater before eventually losing 28-21 in the first round of the Georgia Class 4A playoffs.
It was a back-and-forth game in Alabama as No. 58 Mobile (Ala.) Davidson and Fairhope exchanged the lead multiple times. Fairhope led 16-14 at the half and 22-21 at the start of the fourth quarter, before regulation ended with the teams tied at 28-28. Davidson, however, pulled out the 35-28 win in overtime.

Meanwhile, No. 51 The Woodlands (Texas) High wasn't as lucky, as it saw its season end in the first round at the hands of Klein Oak, 31-14.
Saturday's upsets and surprises:
No. 23 Cincinnati (Ohio) Colerain jumped out to a 10-0 lead over Cincinnati St. Xavier on Saturday night. But even that wasn't enough. St. X rallied and led 24-17 into the fourth quarter.
