Ruston and Cedar Creek will both start the 2013 state football playoffs at home.
But only one will play a game this week.
That’s because with the first year of a select and non-select split in the postseason, some district foes will not be in the same brackets for the playoffs and some divisions such as select Division I has only 10 teams in the postseason to begin with.
