2016 Football District Tiebreakers

District Tiebreak Schedule

The following is a listing of all district tiebreakers in the 2016 FHSAA Football Championships.
Rules of Competition are:

  • Seeding is based on overall win-loss percentage. The higher-seeded team in each 12-minute quarter shall wear dark jerseys.  Teams must bring both light and dark jerseys.
  • Participating schools shall play one entire 12-minute quarter against their bracketed opponent(s) in each District Tiebreaker.
  • Each participating team is allotted two timeouts per quarter.
  • If the score is tied at the end of regulation, the NFHS overtime procedure shall be used to determine a winner (the 10-yard line overtime tiebreaker plan).
  • If three schools are participating in a District Tiebreaker, the No. 1 seed receives a first-round bye and will play the winner of the quarter between the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds. If the No. 1 seed defeats the winner of seeds No. 2 vs. No. 3, then the No. 1 seed will advance as the district champion and the school it defeated will advance as the district runner-up. If the No. 1 seed loses to the winner of seeds No. 2 and No. 3, then the school that defeated the No. 1 seed will advance as the district champion, and the No. 1 seed must then play the loser of seeds No. 2 vs. No. 3 to determine the district runner-up.
  • If the District Tiebreaker is being played to determine a district runner-up, then the winner of the second 12-minute quarter advances as the district runner-up.
  • The warm-up period between quarters should not exceed 20 minutes.
  • Teams are allowed a maximum of 60 players in uniform.
  • No marching bands are allowed.

All contests will take place on Monday, Oct. 31, 2016, at 7 p.m. local time unless otherwise noted. The No. 1 seed is the host school.
