OHSAA state semifinal football pairings


Twenty-eight football regional champions have been crowned and now advance to the Ohio High School Athletic Association state semifinals. Divisions I, II, III and IV play on Friday night, while Divisions V, VI and VII play on Saturday night. All playoff games kick off at 7 p.m.

The winners this weekend will move on to the state championship game Dec. 2-4 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton. One game will be played Thursday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m., followed by three games each on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3-4, at 10:30 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

After the regional tournaments followed a bracket format during the first four rounds, the state semifinal pairings are based on geography of the participating schools. Regional seeds, state rank, won-lost records and playoff histories do not factor into how the OHSAA determines the state semifinal matchups.
