Bookmark and Share

With the field now set for the inaugural Pork & Pigskins Championship, the IHSA and the Illinois Pork Producers Association have revealed the four regions and how to vote for your favorite concession stand pork chop sandwich.

The 79 IHSA schools that have entered to compete for the state title have been separated into four regions: the Berkshire Region, Duroc Region, Hampshire Region, and Yorkshire Region. A full list of competing schools by region is provided below.

The winning school will receive a prize package from the Illinois Pork Producers Association that includes a $500 reimbursement on their pork purchase for next season, a state championship banner, and a golden spatula for the winner.

Online voting by region will begin at 8:00 AM on October 4 and conclude at 8:00 AM on October 8. Fans are encouraged to continue to share their favorite chops on social media with #PorkandPigskins for the duration of the contest.

The Top 4 vote-getters in each Region will advance to the Savory 16, which will feature in-person judging between October 9 and October 22.
The judges’ results will be announced live on the NFHS Network during the IHSA Playoff Pairing Preview Show (7:30 PM) on October 23, paring the field down from the Savory 16 to the Flavorful Four.

Online voting on the Flavorful Four to determine the Pork & Pigskins State Champion will occur between November 1-4, with the champion to be revealed at halftime of the IHSA Class 6A Football State Championship game (4 PM) at Northern Illinois University’s Huskie Stadium on Saturday, November 27.
