The Second Annual Lincoln Highway-Route 66 IHSA Football Playoffs-- Part 1

The regular season is over here in Illinois. After nine games, the best-of-the-best are squaring off, starting tomorrow.

Last year, I had those schools along the Lincoln Highway and those along Route 66 squared off for a last-man standing contest to see which historic road did better. Even though the Route 66 schools outnumbered the Lincoln Highway ones almost 2-1, it ended up as a tie, with the last teams from each school being eliminated in the same round.

This year, there are 19 Route 66 teams and 9 Lincoln Highway ones.

Illinois is divided into eight classes by school size.
