NOTE: This post is outdated as of the July 24 release of schedule revisions due to COVID-19. Please visit the Football page for updated schedules and scores in the 2020 season. 


Schedules for the 2020 football regular season are now available for all participating schools.

District and group assignments were posted in February, following Board of Control approval. This arrangement is in place for just one year, as opposed to the usual two-year football cycle.

Class 4A has also implemented a success model for its group format and regular season scheduling.

Regular season football schedules are determined by the IHSAA. Regular season schedules for all other IHSAA sports are determined by member schools and their conferences.

Districts and groups are assigned by the IHSAA, then schools select preferred non-district opponents through a priority list. The IHSAA attempts to align schedules with as many priority list selections as possible, however opponents and availability cannot be guaranteed.
