Six area high school football teams will be playing in the Ohio High School Athletic football semifinals.
OHSAA announced the pairings and neutral sites for the semifinal games Saturday, according to a spokesperson from the association.
The regions are paired based on the geography of the schools involved.
The top team in the bracket will be the home team. It will be listed first in the pairings, the spokesperson said.
A team’s win-loss record, regional seed, and state rank won’t factor in the home or away designation.
17 of the 28 regional champions were No. 1 seeds in their regions, the spokesperson said.
All semifinal games will kick off at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 24.
