Was the WIAA fair to Franklin football?

Titan Stadium (UW–Oshkosh) - Wikipedia

On Friday the Sabers will face Appleton North High School to determine which team goes to Madison to play for the state championship. Friday’s game will be played at Titan Stadium at UW-Oshkosh. Franklin is the higher seed, a #1 seed to be exact, and is ranked as the #1 team in our area, quite possibly the entire state.

Did the WIAA pick a neutral site for this game? Did the WIAA select a site that was midway between the two schools?

Franklin High School is 92.3 miles from Titan Stadium with a travel time of 1hr 37 minutes.

Appleton North High School is 27.4 miles from Titan Stadium with a travel time of  28 minutes.

  1. Franklin would regularly be playing 3rd and 4th string players and executing their style of football. If that’s ‘running up the score’ you sadly don’t understand that which you are commenting on.

    That said game 1 between these 2 teams was a nail biter to the last seconds….Appleton played an arguably tougher schedule than Franklin (not FHS’s fault just how it is) this season……the rematch is set up to be very competitive and very interesting .
