Duke to host 2 NC prep football title games in December

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina High School Athletic Association says it will hold two football state championship games at Duke in December, meaning each of the state's four Atlantic Coast Conference schools will host two games.

The NCHSAA announced the move Thursday, adding Duke's Wallace Wade Stadium to the rotation along with UNC's Kenan Stadium, North Carolina State's Carter-Finley Stadium and Wake Forest's BB&T Field.

It will mark Duke's first chance to host since 2006. NCHSAA commissioner Que Tucker said in a statement it reached a partnership with the Triangle Sports Commission to return to Duke after seeing recent renovations to Wallace Wade Stadium.

The eight games for the upcoming 2017 season are tentatively set for Dec. 9.
