OHSAA Releases Football State Semifinal Pairings 

Regional champions meet Friday night for a berth in the state championships

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio High School Athletic Association has announced the pairings and sites for next Friday night’s football state semifinal games. Last Tuesday, the OHSAA announced how the regions would be paired in the state semifinals, which is based on the geography of the schools involved.

 

The top team on the bracket is the home team in the state semifinals, which are listed first in the pairings below. A team’s won-lost record, regional seed and state rank do not factor into the state semifinal home/away designation.  

 

STATE SEMIFINALISTS BY SEED

Of the 28 regional champions, 17 were No. 1 seeds in their region. There were also three No. 2 seeds that have advanced to the state semifinals, along with one No. 3 seed, two No. 4 seeds, two No. 5 seeds, one No. 6 seed, one No. 7 seed and one No. 12 seed. 

 

TICKETS

Tickets for all playoff games are available on Mondays at www.ohsaa.org/tickets. Information regarding state championship game tickets are posted at: https://www.ohsaa.org/news-media/articles/tickets-now-on-sale-for-ohsaa-football-state-championships

 

ABOUT NEUTRAL SITES

Neutral sites receive a hosting stipend from the OHSAA and also keep revenue from concessions, parking, 50-50 raffles and program sales. In addition, the OHSAA pays for the officials.

 

Of note, a team’s regional seed, state rank and overall record do not factor into the decisions on neutral site locations.

 

Without schools being willing to host games, the OHSAA would not be able to use neutral sites. Many factors go into determining locations for each game, and rarely can a site be found that is exactly halftime between the two schools. Once a potential site is determined, the school must be available and willing to host a game on the requested night.
