1973 and prior, there were no playoff games as we know of today. State Titles were decided by the NJSIAA Championship Committee. It wasn't until 1974 that the playoff format was developed to decide on the field, a true champion. From 1974 through 1997, there were four teams that qualified for the playoffs. From 1998 to present, the playoff field comprised eight teams.

Colonia – The Colonia High School football team’s offense put together another stellar showing last night in a 49-27 victory over Woodbridge, but it was a spark given by the defense midway through the first quarter that began it all.
After falling behind 14-0, Colonia turned the ball over again on a fumble recovered by Zaire Robinson on its own 27-yard line and a three-touchdown deficit seemed all but certain. However, on the next play, Woodbridge couldn’t corral a backwards pass and Colonia’s Brandon Haines recovered the loose ball.
The play gave the Patriots new life and they responded with a 14-play, 55-yard drive capped off by a 1-yard run from Tenny Adewusi. The offense then resembled the unit that’s led this team to an undefeated record and went on to score on seven of its next eight possessions.
“That changed the momentum,” said Adewusi, who finished 12-for-15 passing for 246 yards with three TDs and rushed for 80 yards. “They were making big plays and we weren’t making any. Once we got that big play, we were able to get rolling with some big plays of our own. That was that one play that we needed to get ourselves going and let us know that we can win this game.”
Woodbridge answered with a 32-yard TD pass from Tracy Fudge to Quaasim Glover on a fourth-and-eight to make it 21-7 with 10:18 left in the second quarter, but Colonia would come back even stronger.
Tenni Adewusi threw three touchdown passes and ran for another and Sam Pero finished with three TDs to lead Colonia over Woodbridge, 49-27, in Colonia.
Adewusi, who went 12-of-17 passing for 272 yards, connected with Pharaoh Napolean for a 62-yard strike, Bryce Barneys for 51 yards and Pero for a 7-yard score and added a 1-yard TD run to lead Colonia's offensive attack. Pero added TD runs of 3 and 49 yards as he ran for 138 yards on 18 carries. Napolean finished with four catches for 139 yards.
James Corbett added a 68-yard punt return for a TD for Colonia in the fourth quarter. Tracy Fudge threw a pair of TD passes for Woodbridge

Woodbridge 3-2 at Colonia 5-0: Woodbridge is one of the GMC’s most improved teams with the emergence of sophomore Tracy Fudge at quarterback. Fudge has 625 yards passing and three touchdowns as the Barrons have won three straight games. Quaasim Glover is Fudge’s No. 1 target as he has 407 receiving yards, which leads the GMC. Nate Lanier has 355 rushing yards and three touchdowns for the Barrons and returned a fumble for a touchdown last week on defense. Colonia needed a last second 25-yard field goal from Brandon Ribiero to hold off Matawan 10-7 last week. The Patriots run one of the most balanced offenses in the GMC as quarterback Tenny Adewusi is the conference’s leading passer with 663 yards and six touchdowns while Sam Pero controls the running game with 637 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. Colonia has good size and skill on the offensive line, which might pose problems for the Barrons. In a crosstown rivalry game between these two teams, anything can happen. The Barrons are riding a three-game winning streak in which they’re allowing an average of 8.3 points per game. Colonia 23-16.
