Prep football quarterfinals schedule

The start of the quarterfinals for prep football across the state also presents the beginning of the historic Open Division playoffs, as the state’s top eight teams from 6A, 5A and 4A begin their quest for a true state championship.

Spectators can expect plenty of action from the Open Division games, with several marquee matchups on tap for Friday night. But fans shouldn’t overlook the conference playoffs, either.

Several rematches from this season and in year’s past will take place across all conferences this week, including teams eying revenge from losses earlier this year and playoff rematches.

A 1A Conference champion will also be crowned this week, bringing an end to an exciting year in 8-man football.
