(WSIL) — On Saturday, October 23, the IHSA Playoff Pairings Television Show will reveal the 2021 football playoff field LIVE.
The show will air on channel 13.3 ME TV from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The pandemic pushed the 2020 IHSA football season to the spring of 2021, where a condensed six-week season culminated with no postseason, marking the first time since 1973 that the IHSA did not crown state champions in the sport.
