The road to the UNI-Dome has been set for 96 Iowa high school football teams, as the IHSAA released playoff pairings early Saturday morning.

If you missed it, here are how teams qualified, including the final RPI standings.

Now, a look at the pairings for all six classes, determined by RPI seeding and geography. Think of these as four brackets of four teams each in each class, as the teams will be reseeded once they reach the state semifinals in Cedar Falls.

The highest-ranked district champions were given the opportunity to host.

First-round games are scheduled for Friday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. The second round follows on Nov. 8. The highest seed in each matchup will host in the second round.

Rankings listed are RPI.
