Quick facts about the Prep-Bowl Playoffs:
The Prep-Bowl is the longest running playoff format for high school football in the state of Illinois. It was started in 1927 and is played at Soldier Field in Chicago.
The Prep-Bowl is the match up of the best team from the Chicago Public League and the best team from the Chicago Catholic League (or as it is now known as the Catholic Metro Conference).

Due to the nature of the Prep-Bowl playoffs, CMC teams may not end up entering the playoffs until round 3 or 4 if they are participating in the IHSA playoffs or as in the case of some CPL teams,
may play in the first round, miss round 2 & 3, but return in the 4th round.
With an 8 class playoff system for the IHSA, more teams than previous years will be participating in the IHSA playoffs. Almost all teams with a 5-4 record should qualify for the IHSA.
Because of IHSA restrictions on enrollment areas, certain teams from the Chicago Public Leagues will not be eligible for IHSA play even with a 5-4 or better record .
The IHSFW Prep-Bowl Playoff watch will post information on which teams are & are not available for IHSA play.
The Catholic Metro half of the Prep-Bowl Playoffs starts week #10 or round #2 of the CPL Playoffs.
