OHSAA Football Playoffs Regional Championship Pairings

Published Sunday 13 November 2022 17:15

Columbus, Ohio – The Ohio High School Athletic Association released football’s regional final playoff pairings and neutral sides on Sunday afternoon. Divisions I, II, III and V play on Friday, Divisions IV, VI and VII on Saturday. All games start at 7 p.m

A team’s win-loss record, regional seed rank, and state rank are irrelevant when selecting neutral locations. Rarely can an available location be found exactly halfway between the two schools. Neutral sites receive a rental fee from OHSAA and retain revenue from concessions, parking lots, and program sales.

The regional playoffs follow the bracket format (see link below). The higher seeded team is the designated home team.

Tickets for all games must be purchased in advance at www.ohsaa.org/tickets.

Later this week, the OHSAA will announce how the regions will be paired for the state semifinals.

Which seeds made it to the regional finals

Of the 28 regions, there are 21 No. 1 seeded regional finals and there are nine No. 1 vs. No. 2 match-ups. There are a total of 13 #2 seeds, 11 #3 seeds, three #4 seeds, three #5 seeds, two #6 seeds, one #8 seed, and two #10 seeds, which advanced to the fourth Round.
