There were 229 automatic qualifying teams (by win total) – with the final 27 teams selected by playoff-point average, one from each class in order (A, B, C, D) until the field was filled.
Those 256 11-player teams are then split into eight equal divisions based on the schools enrollment. Two teams from each of the eight divisions will be in the Championship Games at Ford Field on either November 28th or November 29th.
