Coach Big Pete's IHSA Games Of The Week For Week 9 2022 & IHSA Playoff Picture So Far Classes 1A-8A
So, the playoff outlook is from IHSA.ORG, and again we will not have full a picture on classes and pairings till Saturday. Anyone that says they do is full of crap. SCROLL DOWN FOR ALL CLASSES
Here we are one more week left of the regular season, and we got conference titles on the line and playoff berths as well. 4-win teams trying to get to that magic number of 5, and 5-win teams trying to automatically clinch. But what more can be said about this exciting last week of Illinois high school football that hasn't been already said in past years. We have a pretty calm last two weeks, and I got a feeling this will be going to the favored teams this week. What scares me though is the chance of major league upsets in the first round especially from 5A-8A. But I digress into more things about next week. This week's big matches are ICCP vs St. Francis, Mount Carmel vs Loyola, and many more exciting powerhouses duking it out. Wauconda, Seneca, Stillman Valley, Johnston City still undefeated after 8 weeks. So, grab the popcorn and let's get ready for the final week of regular season football. Also make sure Coaches, Players I get your season stats this week (I'm looking for the IHSA Player of the Year). Please Coaches and Players make sure that I have your game film/season stats from that week so I can send them out. Breakfast with Coach Big Pete will be at midnight for this week as well.

Playoff Outlook So Far Week 9 From IHSA.ORG
This list shows hypothetical classes for the IHSA Football Playoffs. If the season had ended last weekend (after 8 weeks), the class cutoffs would have been made as shown below. This list is not a prediction of the final classes and seeds.
A school's football classification (1A through 8A) depends on the makeup of the entire 256-team field. Because the teams in this hypothetical field change from week to week, schools that are "on the bubble" may move back and forth between classes as the season progresses.
Bids: R = conference representative/champion; C = clinched playoff berth (6+ wins)
