Cowboys Stadium in Arlington will host the state title games for high school football again this year for classes A through 5A.
The UIL made the announcement Tuesday.
"We are excited to announce that the UIL football championships will be held at Cowboys Stadium once again,” said UIL Director of Athletics, Mark Cousins, Ph.D. “As a premiere venue in the state, Cowboys Stadium provides our student athletes and their fans with a remarkable championship experience. The UIL and Cowboys Stadium will work together to ensure more memorable moments at this year's championship games."
The games were also held at the stadium in 2011. This year marked the third time all UIL football state championship games in all conferences were held at pre-determined locations. The UIL has determined the site for the Conference 5A football state championships since 2006.
1A 6-Man championships will be held at Shotwell Stadium in Abilene.
