OHSAA Announces Football State Semifinal Bracket Pairings
This weekend’s regional champions will meet November 23 and 24 in the state semifinals
 
COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio High School Athletic Association has announced how the football regional champions will be paired in four of the OHSAA’s seven divisions for next week’s state semifinals. Three of the divisions (II, IV and V) cannot be determined until after the regional championships have been decided.
 
The football state semifinal pairings are not predetermined because they are based almost entirely on geography of the competing schools to keep travel time to a minimum. Regional seeds, records or rankings do not factor into the state semifinal pairings.
