Flag football tournament rankings: How it’s done


BYU intramural flag football tournament classification rankings will be posted by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, October 28 for men’s teams and 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 28 for women’s teams.

Teams are ranked between a one and a five with five being the highest-ranking possible.

The five points teams are judged on are:

  1. Team has plays and can run them successfully.
  2. Passes are thrown with accuracy.
  3. Passes are caught with consistency.
  4. Defense successfully reads plays and pulls flags.
  5. Team speed and athleticism.

Teams “will be placed in the tournament division that best fits their ability” according to the BYU Intramural website.

If teams do not feel that they were placed in a division where they can be competitive, teams have until 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 31 to challenge their rankings.

Brackets for post-season play will then be finalized by 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 2.

2013-2014 NIRSA Flag and Touch Football rules will continue to apply in tournament with one difference. In the event of a tie in tournament play, there will be an over-time period.

Further information on tournament policies and over-time procedures can be found at intramurals.byu.edu.
