BIRMINGHAM, Ala.- The Southwestern Athletic Conference has announced the permanent future of its Football Championship game.
The league has moved toward adopting a plan that will have the annual contest played at the home site of the highest ranked team at the conclusion of the regular season.
“After reviewing several significant proposals that we received in regards to hosting the SWAC Football Championship game and in consultation with the SWAC’s Council of Presidents and Chancellors, the decision has been made to keep the game on campus,” said SWAC Commissioner Dr. Charles McClelland.
“Hosting the game on campus last year gave us a great level of insight and understanding as it relates to the overall worth and value the game brings to our conference. We look forward to the future of the game on campus in what should undoubtedly bring exciting atmospheres and memorable performances.”
The 2019 SWAC Championship game has been slated for Saturday, December 7. The game is scheduled to be broadcast live on ESPNU at 3:00 pm.
