The second round is the regional semifinals in Divisions II through VII and the regional quarterfinals in Division I. After the higher seeds hosted games last weekend in the first round, all playoffs sites are now selected by the OHSAA. The home teams (higher seeds) went 88‐24 in the first round of the playoffs. Eight schools won their first playoff game in and a No. 16 seed won its first‐round game for the first time. Those notes and more are included in the weekly notes packet linked below. The regional playoffs follow bracket format. The brackets are posted on the playoff coverage page at www.OHSAA.org. Unless otherwise noted, Divisions II, III, IV and VI play at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays during the playoffs, while Divisions I, V and VII play at 7 p.m. on Saturdays. Note that “neutral site” does not mean that the stadium is located exactly halfway between the two teams, as the best available site is selected based on the requirements for all 56 games in the second round (see later note). In August, 723 teams began the football season and 224 (31 percent) qualified for the playoffs based on the OHSAA’s computer points rating system. Throughout the Playoffs – Let’s All “Respect the Game” Speak with Courtesy, Act with Dignity and Play with Pride There are seven football divisions, with the largest 72 schools placed in Division I and the remaining schools placed in Divisions II through VII (approximately 108 schools in each division). There are two regions in Division I and four regions each in Divisions II through VII. The top 16 teams in both Division I regions will qualify for the playoffs, while the top eight schools in each region in Divisions II through VII will qualify.
