first time ever there will be nine title games, instead of five, because the LHSAA voted to separate public schools from private schools for the postseason.
The prep classic will begin Thursday December 12th and last until Saturday 14th in the Mercedes Benz Superdome.
The new postseason format will result in 226 of the 291 high school football teams making the playoffs. Also three of the select-school divisions will have a 16-team field, because there's not enough teams for the traditional 32-team bracket.
That means Division One, Two and Three will have a week off between the semi-final games and their championship game, which will be played on December 12th.
Here's the schedule...

Division III 12:30 PM
Division II 4:30 PM
Division I 8:30 PM
