Nothing is normal in 2020, including the 2020 WIAA football playoffs, which have been rebranded as this season’s “culminating event.”
Here’s what you need to know:
The brackets for all six divisions in 11-player football and an 8-player bracket have been released. There are 196 teams in six divisions in the 11-player culminating event and eight teams in the 8-player playoff.
Teams were seeded electronically utilizing new criteria and formulas to mitigate the effect of COVID cancellations and reshuffling. The criteria include:
- Team’s win percentage
- Opponents’ win percentage
- Opponent’s opponents win percentage
- Defeated Opponents’ Win Percentage
- Defeated Opponents’ Opponents Win Percentage
- Historical Conference Playoff Win Percentage
- Historical Team Playoff Win Percentage
- Strength of Loss Game Value
