AUSTIN -- This year's Class 5A state football championships
will be held at Reliant Stadium in Houston.
It's the third year of the University Interscholastic League
having the title games in Texas' biggest classification at the same
site. The first two years were at San Antonio's Alamodome.
UIL officials have said they plan to pursue the same-site format
for six years, and they hoped for two-year rotations among San
Antonio and the Houston and Dallas areas. Wednesday's announcement
addressed only 2008.
The 5A Division II championship game will be at 2 p.m. Saturday,
Dec. 20., followed by the Division I game at 7 p.m.
Reliant Stadium is home to the NFL's Houston Texans.
