(11-6-22) The IHSA football playoffs moves into week three with the quarterfinals. Looking at what seeds still remain is good way to judge how the qualifying process is for post-season play.

Seeding is not the same in every class. In June (2022) the IHSA The Board approved a recommendation to rescind action that was taken in February regarding the seeding of the football playoffs in Class 1A-6A. The Board elected to change the seeding in Class 1A-6A in February to 1-32, but reversed that decision today based on current economic factors. As a result, the IHSA Football Playoff seeding in Class 1A-6A will revert back to being split into two 1-16 brackets in each class.
