With folks along the South Carolina coastline working to return to normalcy, the state’s high school league met on Wednesday to make a couple of notable rulings on the football season.
Several games across the state were postponed last week as Hurricane Matthew moved its way up the Atlantic. As a result, the SCHSL Executive Committee voted to move the end of the regular season back to Nov. 11.
State title tilts moved back a week, to same weekend as Shrine Bowl. State semifinal games will fall on same weekend as @NorthSouthFB.

Lou Bezjak of The State newspaper wrote that the playoffs will begin Nov. 18 and the state title games are now scheduled for Dec. 16-17. The Class A and 2A games will be at Benedict College while the 3A, 4A and 5A games will still be played at Williams-Brice Stadium.
