UIL selects Cowboys Stadium for title games

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Texas high school football championships are returning to Cowboys Stadium for the third year in a row.

The University Interscholastic League said Tuesday that the $1.3 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys will be the site of every 11-man title game, from Class 5A to 1A.

The six-man Division I and II championship games are returning to Abilene.

Last year, Cowboys Stadium played host to all 11-man finals for the first time after hosting the finals in the three largest classifications in 2010.

This year, the 3A Division I game will be Friday, Dec. 14, followed by three games each on Dec. 20, 21 and 22. The 5A championships are the final two games.

The six-man games will be Dec. 15 at Shotwell Stadium in Abilene.

    Since 2004, Carthage and Gilmer have combined to play in 10 state championship games, and claim eight state titles. So that's why Saturday's Class 4A showdown between the number one Bulldogs and second ranked Buckeyes is sold out. Carthage, who won the Class 4A division I title last year, knocked off Gilmer 55 to 37, snapping the then Buckeyes 23 game regular season winning streak.
