WPIAL Football Playoff Picture

Who is in and who is out? Well OK, this is more geared to who is in and who is still alive. We avoid specifics with two weeks left, but we will run down all of the WPIAL playoff scenarios once Week Eight is put to rest this weekend. For now, here are the teams that have clinched, the teams that are still alive and who they play in the final two weeks of the 2015 campaign.
