The Johnson Jaguars finished their 2015 regular season schedule on Thursday Night and enter the playoffs as the 26-6A Division II number #1 seed.
The UIL football playoffs at the 6A level are separated into two divisions. Each district has their top four teams advance to the playoffs. The two teams that have the highest enrollment go to the Division I bracket while the two smallest teams of the four playoff squads are placed in the Division II bracket. The teams in Division I will never meet the teams in Division II so in December two 6A teams will be crowned champion.
The four teams from 26-6A will be Reagan and Churchill in Division I and Johnson and MacArthur in Division II.
Johnson finishes the 2015 regular season with an overall record of 7-3 and a district mark of 5-1. Johnson enters the playoffs on a four game win streak and averaging 43.25 points over the last four including 60 last week vs MacArthur. The Jaguar defense is also holding opponents to just over two touchdowns a contest.
Johnson will see a familiar foe in the first round of the UIL 6A playoffs as Clemens again is the #2 seed from 25-6A. Last year the Jags and Buffs met at Texas State on a rainy and cold afternoon with the Jags pulling off the 21-7 victory.
This year the Jaguar Nation will not have to drive to San Marcos as Johnson will host at Heroes Stadium Friday Night vs Clemens.
The Buffaloes defeated New Braunfels last week to qualify for the playoffs and enter with a 8-2 / 4-2 record. Clemens two losses came at the hands of Steele and Judson in district play.
Clemens is also on a four game win streak and is also averaging 43.25 points per game over those four games. Clemens defense has given up 34.5 over the same span.
Winner of the Johnson vs Clemens match up will face the winner of the Brandeis vs Corpus Christi Carroll game another re-match from the 2014 playoffs.
