    Default D2 Championship Game Moved To McKinney, TX

    Brand new high school stadium that makes all PSAC stadiums look really sad.

    If you like postseason college football games, the Dallas/Fort Worth area is the place to be this season:

    12/15/18 (Sat): Division II national championship game (McKinney, TX - about 30 miles NNE of Dallas)
    12/19/18 (Wed): Frisco Bowl (Frisco, TX - about 30 miles north of Dallas)
    12/22/18 (Sat): Armed Forces Bowl (Fort Worth, TX)
    12/26/18 (Wed): First Responder Bowl (Dallas, TX)
    12/29/18 (Sat): Cotton Bowl, Division I-A/FBS national semifinal game (Arlington, TX - about 20-25 miles west of Dallas and 15 miles east of Fort Worth)
    01/05/19 (Sat): Division I-AA/FCS national championship game (Frisco, TX - about 30 miles north of Dallas)

    On top of the above, the Big 12 championship game will also be played in Arlington, TX, on Saturday 12/1/18.

    It's going to look like Hersheypark Stadium for a PIAA final in December.

    Question one---where is McKinney, Texas?

    Question two--- is this the massively expensive Texas high school stadium that had to be closed for awhile because of cracks showing up everywhere in its structure?

    At least it will be a short trip for Commerce to pick up their trophy.

    You are thinking of Allen High School. Home of the Allen Eagles.

    It’s about 30 miles northeast of Dallas. Allen is also in that DFW area as well.

    Okay, I recalled reading about a megabucks high school stadium down that way that had problems. Glad to hear that it is not that one where the title game will be held.

    Wonder what the weather is like down that way in mid-December. I know it can get cold and snow in west Texas out El Paso way as evidenced by flurries during several Sun Bowls that I have watched over the years.

    The Allen ISD stadium mess:

    McKinney ISD also had cracking issues with their stadium:

    https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/sports/N...489521931.html

    Allen is located between McKinney and Plano along the US 75 corridor into Collin County. Collin and Denton Counties north of Dallas/Fort Worth would make Philadelphia's Main Line or the South Hills suburbs of Pittsburgh (Upper St. Clair and Mt. Lebanon, in particular) look like a low income neighborhood, just to give you an idea how rich this area is.

    The Frisco ISD, west of Allen/McKinney, plays some of their high school games at a 12,000 seat stadium at a complex which hosts the Cowboys' practice facility, and some of their soccer games are played at a complex shared with the Major League Soccer club FC Dallas.
