Number of Macomb County football teams in line for playoff berths
Posted September 23, 2013
The 2013 Michigan High School Athletic Association state football playoffs begin with pre-district play Nov. 2, and a number of Macomb County teams are on their way to qualifying for the postseason.
According to the MHSAA, for football, postseason inclusion is determined by wins and a computer point value, calculated for each team based upon its record and strength of schedule, with the top 256 teams (including all teams with six victories if playing a nine-game schedule) qualifying. These 256 teams are then ordered by enrollment and divided into eight divisions of 32 teams each.
Each week, beginning today, C & G Sports will give you a snapshot of which local squads are in line for postseason berths. This week, we begin with teams from the Macomb Area Conference.
