The 2008 Class 5A state football championships will be held at Reliant Stadium in Houston. It's the third year of the University Interscholastic League having the title games in the state's biggest classification -- at the same site. The first two years were at San Antonio's Alamodome.

UIL officials have said they plan to pursue the same-site format for six years, and they hoped for two-year rotations among San Antonio and the Houston and Dallas areas.

The 5A Division II championship game will be Saturday afternoon, December 20th, with the nightcap featuring the Division I game.

Reliant Stadium is home to the NFL's Houston Texans.
