b. Playoff's will be scheduled in one of two ways:

i. Playoff schedules will be determined at a playoff captains' meeting at or near the end of the regular season. Each captain in attendance will select the day and time of his/her team's first playoff game. Teams not in attendance will be randomly placed in the schedule after all selections have been made. This selection also determines the entire playoff schedule should the team continue to advance. Therefore, no playoff games will be rescheduled.

ii. Playoff schedules will be determined by the Intramural Office based on seeding. Teams in one league will not play another team from that league in the opening round. Games will be scheduled based on the availability of the facility. Games will only be rescheduled only upon mutual consent and for academic reasons.

c. If a team's playoff game in one sport conflicts with a regular season game in another sport, the regular season game must be rescheduled. The team with the conflict must notify the Intramural Office immediately upon realizing the conflict. The team with the conflict has one week from the time of the contest to complete the rescheduling procedure (contact opponents, completed game change form on file, etc.) for the game will be declared a No Show.

K. Tiebreaker Policy

a. Team(s) with a No Show would be ranked lowest to break a tie.

b. The winner of the contest during league play between two teams will be ranked higher.

c. If there is a three-way tie and the above methods have not broken the tie, then the record among the teams tied will be used to determine position, if all teams have played each other.
