There's one football game left on the schedule for almost every team in the 2018 Wyoming High School Regular Season.

Some teams have their playoff spot secured and are waiting to learn which team is their first round opponent.

Others are in the post-season, but don't know yet if they will play at home, or on the road in the first round.

A few teams haven't made it in yet, but are close.

They just need a win, and a few need a win and some help from other teams.

If worse comes to worse, there is a flip of the coin.

In the long run, not only to some teams need to take care of business in week 8, but they have to watch the scoreboard as well, because there are certain scenarios that will determine their playoff fate.

Before going through the scenarios, first an explanation of tie-breakers, according to the Wyoming High School Activities Association:

2-way tie: Use head-to-head result.

3-way tie: If one team beat the other 2 tied teams, or lost to the other 2 tied teams, that team moves up or moves down. Use head-to-head for the remaining 2 tied teams.

3-way tie, all beat each other, regardless is all will or will not make the playoffs: This happens when Team A beats Team B, Team B beats Team C, and Team C beats Team A. The first thing is check record vs. the highest team in the conference, not involved in the tie. If that doesn't work, use the next highest team, next highest, etc...until all teams in the conference not involved in the tie have been checked. If and when a difference is found while going down the standings, that team will move up or move down. Use head-to-head for the other 2 tied teams. If the tie has not been broken, then a 3-way coin flip will be conducted to determine seeding. In some cases, a 3-way coin flip could determine whether a team makes the playoffs or not.

3-way Coin Flip: The coin flip can either be done by the teams themselves (coaches and/or AD's will gather at a pre-determined location) OR it can take place on Saturday, October 20th, during the State Cross Country Meet in Sheridan. Representatives from each of the 3 teams will flip their own coin. If all 3 get heads or tails, then re-flip. Once there is 2 heads and 1 tail, or 2 tails and 1 head, the team with the odd flip of the coin is the LOSER and moves down in the tie-breaker scenario (could be eliminated). Use head-to-head for the remaining 2 tied teams.

4-way Tie: (We believe similar rules are used for a 5-way tie)

According to WHSAA rule 7.4.8, check to see if any of the tied teams have an advantage in head-to-head play vs. each other. Move that team or teams up or down accordingly. If 3-teams remain after that, revert back to 3-way tie-breaker rules for the remaining tied teams. If 2-teams remain, check head-to-head. However, it is unclear in the rule, if one team MUST have beaten or lost to the other 3. If 1 team has beaten or lost to the other 3, moves that team up or down accordingly, and revert back to 3-way tie-breaker rules for the other 3 tied teams. If 1 team has not beaten or lost to the other 3, then you go to 4-way coin flip, in which there has to be 3 heads and 1 tail, or 3 tails and 1 head. The odd flip moves to the bottom of the tie. Revert to 3-way tie-breaker rules for the remaining tied teams.

With the tie-breaker rules covered, let's examine the situations. These are not official and are subject to error.

Point differential tie-breaker: There are talks about this, but it won't go into effect until 2019.

4A:

Week 8 games that will have an impact on playoff seeding: Natrona at Rock Springs, Laramie at Thunder Basin, Sheridan at Cheyenne East, Kelly Walsh at Campbell County, Cheyenne Central at Cheyenne South

Week 8 games that won't have an impact on playoff seeding: None

Natrona, Thunder Basin and Cheyenne East all win: 3-way coin flip for #1, #2 and #3 seeds. All 3 would be 8-1. Natrona beat TB, TB beat Cheyenne East, Cheyenne East beat Natrona. Sheridan (6-3) is #4 seed.

Natrona and Thunder Basin win, Cheyenne East loses: Natrona (8-1) gets #1 seed over TB (8-1) due to head-to-head win. Bolts get #2 seed. Sheridan (7-2) gets #3 seed over Cheyenne East (7-2), due to head-to-head win. Cheyenne East get #4 seed.

Natrona and Cheyenne East win, Thunder Basin loses: Cheyenne East (8-1) gets #1 seed over Natrona (8-1) due to head-to-head win. Mustangs get #2 seed. TB (7-2) gets #3 seed, Sheridan (6-3) gets #4 seed.

Cheyenne East and Thunder Basin win, Natrona loses: TB (8-1) gets #1 seed over Cheyenne East (8-1) due to head-to-head win. Cheyenne East gets #2 seed. Natrona (7-2) gets #3 seed, Sheridan (6-3) gets #4 seed.

Natrona wins, Thunder Basin and Cheyenne East lose: Natrona (8-1) gets #1 seed. TB (7-2), Sheridan (7-2) and Cheyenne East (7-2) would be in a 3-way tie for #2, #3 and #4. TB would get #2 seed due to beat both Sheridan and Cheyenne East. Cheyenne East would drop to #4 seed, due to losing to both TB and Sheridan. Sheridan gets #3 seed.

Thunder Basin wins, Natrona and Cheyenne East lose: Thunder Basin (8-1) gets #1 seed. Natrona (7-2), Sheridan (7-2) and Cheyenne East (7-2) would be in a 3-way tie for #2, #3 and #4 seeds. Natrona beat Sheridan, Sheridan beat Cheyenne East, and Cheyenne East beat Natrona. Checking record vs. highest team in the conference not involved in the tie, Natrona would get #2 seed, because the Mustangs beat Thunder Basin, whereas Sheridan and Cheyenne East did not. Sheridan would then get #3 seed over Cheyenne East, due to head-to-head win. Cheyenne East would get #4 seed.

Cheyenne East wins, Natrona and Thunder Basin lose: Cheyenne East (8-1) gets #1 seed. Natrona (7-2), Thunder Basin (7-2) and Sheridan (7-2) would be in a 3-way tie for #2, #3 and #4 seeds. Natrona gets #2 seed due to beating both Thunder Basin and Sheridan. TB gets #3 seed over Sheridan due to head-to-head win. Sheridan would be #4.

Natrona, Thunder Basin and Cheyenne East lose: 4-way tie with Sheridan, and all 4 teams are 7-2. After checking with the WHSAA, Natrona and Thunder Basin each would be 2-1 in the group, while Sheridan and Cheyenne East would each be 1-2. Natrona beat Thunder Basin and Sheridan beat Cheyenne East, so the seeds would go Natrona at #1, Thunder Basin at #2, Sheridan at #3 and Cheyenne East at #4.

Laramie: #5 seed secured. A win or a loss at Thunder Basin changes nothing. Can't catch Sheridan for #4 seed (2 games behind, with 1 to go). Plainsmen have head-to-head vs. Rock Springs, should they lose and the Tigers win.

Rock Springs wins, Kelly Walsh wins, Cheyenne Central beats Cheyenne South: Rock Springs (4-5) gets #6 seed. The Tigers lose head-to-head vs. Laramie for #5 seed.

Cheyenne Central (2-7) gets #8 seed over Kelly Walsh (2-7) due to head-to-head win. Kelly Walsh is eliminated.

Rock Springs loses, Kelly Walsh wins, Cheyenne Central beats Cheyenne South: This creates a 3-way tie between Rock Springs (3-6), Cheyenne Central (3-6) and Kelly Walsh (3-6). RS gets #6 seed due to head-to-head wins vs. both Cheyenne Central and Kelly Walsh. Kelly Walsh drops to #8 seed, due to losing to both Rock Springs and Cheyenne Central. Kelly Walsh would have a win vs. #5 Laramie, whereas Rock Springs and Cheyenne Central don't, but that win would be trumped by losses to both Rock Springs and Cheyenne Central. Cheyenne Central would be #7 seed. Cheyenne South (2-7) is eliminated.

Rock Springs loses, Kelly Walsh wins, Cheyenne South beats Cheyenne Central: This creates a 3-way tie between Kelly Walsh (3-6) Cheyenne South (3-6) and Rock Springs (3-6). Rock Springs beat Kelly Walsh, Kelly Walsh beat Cheyenne South, Cheyenne South beat Rock Springs. Checking record vs. highest team in the conference not involved in the tie (all lost vs. Natrona, Thunder Basin, Cheyenne East and Sheridan), Kelly Walsh gets #6 seed, due to having a win vs. #5 Laramie, whereas Cheyenne South and Rock Springs don't. Cheyenne South gets #7 seed, due to head-to-head win vs. Rock Springs. Rock Springs gets #8 seed. Cheyenne Central (2-7) is eliminated.

Rock Springs: Already in the playoffs. In 6 of 8 scenarios, the Tigers can get the #6 seed. They get the #6 seed with a win. They can also get the #6 seed with a loss AND if Cheyenne Central beats Cheyenne South (Kelly Walsh result would be irrelevant). Either #7 or #8 seed with a loss AND if Cheyenne South beats Cheyenne Central. The Kelly Walsh result would then determine which seed.

Kelly Walsh: In with a win. The Trojans can also make the playoffs with a loss AND if Cheyenne Central beats Cheyenne South (Rock Springs result would be irrelevant). Eliminated with a loss AND if Cheyenne South beats Cheyenne Central (Rock Springs result would be irrelevant). The loss to Cheyenne Central would come back to haunt.

Cheyenne Central: In with a win and would be the #7 seed (Rock Springs and Kelly Walsh results would be irrelevant). The Indians would be the #8 seed with a loss AND if Kelly Walsh loses. Eliminated with a loss AND if Kelly Walsh wins (Rock Springs result would be irrelevant).

Cheyenne South: In with a win and be either #6, #7 or #8 seed depending on results of Rock Springs and Kelly Walsh games. Out with a loss. The win vs. Rock Springs helps, but losing to both Kelly Walsh and Cheyenne Central would trump it.

Campbell County: Eliminated. Even if the Camels beat Kelly Walsh, they would be 1 game behind both Kelly Walsh and the Cheyenne Central-Cheyenne South loser, with no games remaining on the schedule.

Riverside: Ineligible for playoffs due to WHSAA enrollment rules. The Rebels are supposed to be a 1A 11-man team based on their enrollment, but opted to drop down to 6-man. When any team drops to a lower class, they are automatically disqualified from the post-season.

St. Stephens: Eliminated.

Dubois: Eliminated.
