JEFFERSON CITY – The Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) recently announced that the 2020 state high school football championships will be played at three locations in and around the Capital City instead of at Mizzou.

Because of new pandemic rules, the University of Missouri currently prohibits outside events to be played on Faurot Field, the usual home of the post-season high school football season. Class 1 through 6 games will be played on school fields at Jefferson City High, Blair Oaks High, and Helias Catholic High.

The Class 6 championship will be played Thanksgiving weekend, with Class 1-5 the following weekend.
