Kansas High School Football Class 8M-II East Seeding Scenarios

Kansas High School Football Class 8M-II East Seeding Scenarios

In a typical year, the playoff picture for Kansas high school football is becoming crystal clear by now, but this is not a typical year.

The Kansas High School Activities Association altered the seeding for 3A – 8M by total point differential to now average point differential earlier this year as well as a few other postseason selection alterations if necessary.

The high school football tie-breaker formula for KSHSAA for 2020 is as follows:

  1. District win percentage
  2. Head-to-head, if all teams tied played each other
  3. Average Point Differential
  4. Drawn by lot (the KSHSAA will draw)

With that scenario in mind, we have broken down the possible seeding scenarios for District’s 1 through 4, East districts, in 8M-II for the 2020 season.

Again, this is unprecedented and using the formula given by KSHSAA, we are making the best attempt to break down the possible seeding scenarios. This article also breaks down the scenarios with the current schedule as of 10/20/20

While we made every effort to double-check these, it is possible to still have an error. If you spot an error, please e-mail zlopez@easternkansassports.com.
