BlueCross Bowl host
will be picked soon

MURFREESBORO (AP) — The state’s high school football championships have been in the same central location since 2000, but officials will meet this week to decide whether to continue to have the BlueCross Bowl in Murfreesboro.
The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association’s Board of Control meets Wednesday to decide among three cities to host the next three championship games.
The BlueCross Bowl has been held at Middle Tennessee State University’s Floyd Stadium, but Finley Stadium in Chattanooga and Tucker Stadium in Cookeville are also being considered.
Each city is required to give a monetary bid, which is a minimum of $231,000 per year to host the games. But TSSAA Executive Director Bernard Childress said the association also considers the facilities and whether there is adequate safety, parking and other features.
