AUSTIN, Texas — Editor's note: The video above was KVUE's last Friday Football Fever show of the high school football season.

The Texas University Interscholastic League released its conference cutoff numbers Tuesday, and many Austin-area schools have learned their fate in regard to realignment. 

As expected, the football programs of Hutto High School (6A) and Liberty Hill High School (5A, Division II) will move up in classification due to increased enrollment.

Anderson High School will drop from 6A to 5A and is now the largest Class 5 school in the state.

5A, District 12 will look markedly different next year, as LBJ High School, McCallum High School, Crockett High School, Travis High School, Navarro High School and Northeast High School will each move down to 5A, Division II.
