The Ohio Valley Conference is going with a six-pack.
Athletic directors from the OVC have elected to play a six-game schedule of all conference games for the 2020 season.
Each team will only play six instead of seven league games which allows teams to be part of the postseason playoffs under the current proposal by the Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Control.
The board submitted a plan to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine that is expected to be approved on Tuesday.
The board voted 9-0 to approve a plan that allows teams to play six game or up to 10 games. If the schools play six games, the automatically may be part of the playoffs.
Team have the option to play 10 games with no playoffs or they can play six games and be part of the playoffs but resume playing up to 10 games after being eliminated from the playoffs.
While the board adopted this plan, the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association was not consulted on this particular proposal. The OHSFCA did have several other plans it submitted but were ignored.
Here are the schedules adopted by the OVC athletic directors:
