The CIAA football championship game is heading to Winston-Salem.

The league’s Football Championship Committee voted unanimously to select Winston-Salem State as host for the 2013 game on Nov. 16 at Bowman Gray Stadium, which last hosted the event in 2002.  WSSU's bid was accepted following an evaluation process that began in April. 

The title game between North and South division champs had been hosted at Durham County Memorial Stadium the last five years.

"CIAA football has experienced tremendous success over the last few years," CIAA Commissioner Jacqie Carpenter said in a statement. "In order to accommodate our growing fan base, the conference believed that hosting the football championship at a member institution was the best decision moving forward."

WSSU has won the last two CIAA titles and last year advanced to the Division II championship game. The school will also host the league’s annual CIAA Football Media Day on July 25 at the newly Donald J. Reaves Student Activities Center on campus. 


Yeah that's some BS. WSSU already has the advantage with Division I players.
