The OHSAA's board of directors has approved a seven-division tournament format for the 2013 football state championships.
The addition of a division will allow for more teams to qualify for the state playoffs.
The state championship games will be Dec. 5-7 in Canton and Massillon next season before moving to Ohio Stadium in Columbus in 2014 and 2015
Specific game times and assignments for which divisions will play on which dates will be determined at a later time.
