COLUMBUS – The Ohio High School Athletic Association announced Sunday the pairings and host sites for the football state semifinals. Divisions II, III, IV and VI will play at 7:30 p.m. Friday., while Divisions I, V and VII will playat 7 p.m. Saturday.

In Divisions II through VII, the state semifinal pairings are determined mainly by geography. In Division I, since there are two regions with 16 qualifiers, the pairings are determined by the brackets through the first four rounds.

Playoff pairings follow the regional bracket format as determined by the final computer ratings released Sunday, Nov. 3. A total of 224 schools qualified for the postseason out of the 714 that played football this season (31.4 percent). First-round games were played at the home site of the higher seed, or the site of the higher seed’s choosing. Neutral sites for all other rounds are determined by the OHSAA.

Beginning this season, there are seven divisions in the football playoffs. The largest 72 schools are in Division I, which is divided into two regions. The top 16 teams in both Division I regions have qualified for the playoffs. There are approximately 108 schools each in Divisions II through VII, which are each divided into four regions. The top eight teams in each region in those divisions have qualified for the playoffs.
