The new Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association football playoff schedule seeks to add teams to the post-season and take pressure off of athletes during playoffs.
Rather than the usual Super Bowl structure that featured teams playing in playoff games after Thanksgiving, the playoffs will start at the beginning of November.
Teams that don’t make the playoffs will play other non-playoff teams in the weeks leading up to the annual Thanksgiving game. The six state championship games will take place after Thanksgiving.Confused – and just want to know the Natick High schedule? Here's the varsity football schedule:
