Big excitement starting Friday night in West Michigan as the Michigan high school football playoffs begin.

We've seen a lot of big upsets towards the end of the regular season. More than in most seasons. Will the trend continue or will the favorites prevail now that the stakes are even higher?

The Michigan High School Athletic Association shares where to go to cheer on West Michigan schools for the first weekend of the playoffs. Highlights include a rivalry rematch between Zeeland West and Zeeland East.
