CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham football team is headed to the playoffs on Nov. 14 and the Cougars' first-round opponent will be a team from its new conference.

Chatham opens play in the North Jersey Super Football Conference in 2016 and the Cougars will match up against a team from its new conference in the first round.

Chatham (6-2), which plays its final regular-season game at Morristown on Saturday, is currently seeded sixth in NJSIAA North Jersey, Section 2, Group 3 and would travel to Barringer of Newark for the first round, contingent on the scores of games played Saturday, Nov. 7. The other possibility is a matchup against Orange.

The Chatham-Morristown score will have no bearing on the seedings since the playoff bracket is based on the first eight games on each team's schedule.

The members of Chatham's new football conference, the Patriot B Division includes Barringer, Ferris (Jersey City), Nutley, Orange, Parsippany Hills and West Essex. 

The football-only North Jersey Super Football Conference was designed to separate public from non-public schools into leagues that group teams with others of the same size and in geographical proximity.

Orange, Barringer, Nutley, Chatham and West Essex are all Section 2, Group 3 teams from Patriot B who have clinched a playoff berth.

Voorhees lost to North Hunterdon in overtime on Friday night, which puts the Section 2, Group 3 playoff matchups like this with power points in parenthesis. These matchups won't be official until Orange and Barringer play respective games on Saturday.

1-Cranford (153 points) vs 8-Voorhees (94 points)

5-Ridgefield Park (101 points) vs. 4-Orange (109 points)

3-Barringer (113 points) vs. 6-Chatham (99 points)

7-West Essex (97 points) vs. 2-Nutley (122 points)
