The mission and performance of the University Interscholastic League (UIL) are currently being reviewed by the Legislature as required under the Texas Sunset Act.

The decision on whether or not to move forward with playoff games as scheduled is left to the schools involved in the contest. The recommendation is that should schools decide the conditions do not allow for the game to be played today, that schools wait and see if the conditions are better for Saturday and try to get the game in Saturday, if conditions permit.
If Saturday also is not an option, schools can extend the deadline and play the playoff game on Monday of next week. Start times of any games on Monday are at the discretion of the schools.
If schools do have to postpone until Monday, be aware that the next round game will then have to be moved to Saturday 12/14 at the earliest to satisfy the five day requirement between games.
The playoff brackets are updated as we receive information from participating schools. If you are a participating school and your game has been rescheduled, please email the new date/time to email@example.com
