Here's a class-by-class look at the Section VI playoff picture through Week Seven, the final week of the regular season.
The info below started with our previous playoff post, which -- thanks to some exhaustive work by the Section VI committee, notably chairman Ken Stoldt -- explains how we got here. The Section VI playoff procedures are available in the Section VI handbook.
We updated this page as soon as were are able throughout the weekend. I just updated it at 5:20 p.m. Saturday.
Section VI will announce times and sites for the playoff games Sunday, while it will also announce the matchups of the Chuck Funke Consolation Bowl Playoffs and any other additional games that will he played. We'll post that as soon as we can.
