The NCAA Division II Football Committee has selected McKinney, Texas, and the Lone Star Conference as the host of the football national championship game.

The committee’s recommendation for the game to be held at the McKinney Independent School District Stadium on Dec. 15, was approved by the NCAA Division II Championships Committee on Thursday.

McKinney was one of several bids that the committee received to host the 2018 championship game.

“We are confident that McKinney ISD Stadium, partnered with The Lone Star Conference as host, will allow us to deliver that experience and we look forward to another memorable playoff season and championship game,” said NCAA Division II Football Committee chair Reid Amos.

The NCAA Division II football playoffs begin Nov. 17.
