Division II championship game leaving Alabama
The Division II football championship game is leaving Alabama
after 28 years.
The NCAA announced Wednesday that the game will move to Kansas
City, Kan., starting next season.
Florence has hosted the championship game since 1985 with the
last set for Dec. 21.
It is the second-longest continuous period for any NCAA
championship venue, behind the College World Series in Omaha,
Kansas City will host the games from 2014-17.
The championship had been played in five different locations
under four bowl names in its first 13 years. It was renamed the
NCAA Division II Football Championship Game when Florence won the
bidding to host.
