The plan preserves the state’s traditional Thanksgiving games and allows a 10-game maximum regular season for all schools. Public schools will play their group finals in Week 14, which will come the the week after Thanksgiving. The Non-Public schools would play their state championships in Week 13. However, if either Non-Public school has a Thanksgiving game, the final will be played the same week (Week 14) as the publics.
