MHSAA to hold 2020 Mississippi high school football championships in Jackson

The MHSAA high school football championships are coming home to Jackson in 2020.

The governing body of sports and activities at Mississippi’s public schools announced Thursday it had reached an agreement with Jackson State University to host the 2020 championship games at Veteran’s Memorial Stadium in the capitol city.

The 1A, 3A and 6A championships are set for Friday, Dec. 4, with the 2A, 4A and 5A title games set for Saturday, Dec. 5.

The home of JSU football previously served as the site for all six championship games until 2014, when the MHSAA announced a plan to rotate the championship games among the college stadiums in Oxford, Starkville and Hattiesburg.

The 2020 championships were originally scheduled for Dec. 4 and Dec. 5 at Davis-Wade Stadium in Starkville, but had to be moved after the SEC schedule was moved back and reshaped due to COVID-19. (Mississippi State will instead host the University of Missouri on Dec. 5.)
