WIAA releases football brackets
By Rich Palzewic
BROWN COUNTY – The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association recently released the football brackets for the upcoming postseason.
There will be two levels of playoffs, with the winner of the four-team pod being crowned regional champion.
Locally in Division 2, West De Pere received a No. 1 seed and will host No. 4 Grafton Friday, Nov. 13, with the winner facing either No. 2 Plymouth or No. 3 Luxemburg-Casco the following week.
No. 2 Seymour will host No. 3 Antigo Nov. 13 in its pod.
The winner of that contest will play either No. 1 Shawano or No. 4 Marinette.
Because many teams didn’t play this fall or opted out of the playoffs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, teams were seeded electronically utilizing criteria and formulas new for 2020.
The criteria in the formula include:
- Team’s win percentage
- Opponents’ win percentage
- Opponents’ 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
