NORMAL, Ill. (WMBD/WYZZ) — The state football championship games are coming full circle. The Illinois High School Association board decides in favor of bringing the high school football championships back to Normal starting next fall. The IHSA is moving the state title games to Illinois State's Hancock Stadium where the state's first high school football championships were played in 1974. Hancock Stadium hosted the championship games from 1974-98 but moved the 1999 championship games to Memorial Stadium in Champaign when Illinois State made the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs and wanted to host a first-round game.
