AUSTIN (AP) — The Texas high school football championship games are returning to the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys.

The University Interscholastic League said Tuesday that AT&T Stadium will be the site of all 12 high school title games for the second year in a row. The 80,000-seat venue has been the site for the larger classifications since 2010.

Last season was the first time the six-man championships were played in Arlington, Texas.

The UIL says last year’s Class 5A Division I title game set a Texas high school attendance record with a crowd of 54,347 for Allen’s 63-28 victory against Pearland.

The state’s largest classification is now Class 6A, and six-man is now known as Class 1A.
