IHSAA Releases Fall 2020 Football Schedules

The Iowa High School Athletic Association released football schedules for the 2020 season on Thursday morning. The new campaign will begin on Thursday, Aug. 27th and postseason is set to kickoff on Friday, Oct. 30th for all classes.

In February, the IHSAA released football districts for the new season with the following details:

  • All district champions in Class 3A, 2A, 1A, and 8-Player earn automatic postseason bids. The IHSAA’s Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) will be used for ranking at-large qualifiers again in 2020. Notably, varsity football schedules will be compiled by the IHSAA for a one-year cycle only.
  • Class 3A, 2A, 1A, and 8-Player will feature districts like normal, but the 40 large schools in Class 4A are split into seven ‘Groups,’ which feature a team from each separate tier in 4A, determined by a program’s success level over the last four years of football. Group schedules are designed for teams to play similarly tiered teams at the 4A level. Read more on the Class 4A ‘Groups’ here.
