Football state title games to stay in Cookeville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The state high school football championships will be played at Tennessee Tech in Cookeville for at least the next three years.

The Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association's Board of Control voted Monday to extend its original two-year contract with the Cookeville/Putnam County Chamber of Commerce for another two seasons. The contract would have ended following the upcoming championship games Dec. 3-4.

According to The Tennessean newspaper, Cookeville officials had proposed a four-year contract extension in order to make improvements at Tech's Tucker Stadium.

The games were played last year for the first time in Cookeville.
