During the regular season, you can usually count on most high school football games starting at 7 p.m. on Friday nights.
But the playoffs can be a different story, with long road trips to consider – like Reeths-Puffer’s very long trek to visit Marquette in the Upper Peninsula on Saturday – so sometimes the days and times vary.
Below is a list of this weekend’s first round high school football playoff games with days and times attached. Check out the list closely. While most of the games are still on Friday, a few are starting earlier than usual, and one is at a neutral site.
