The Kentucky High School Athletic Association on Wednesday voted to award the state football finals to the University of Kentucky through 2022.
The Board of Control in a meeting last May moved the 2017 finals from Western Kentucky University’s Houchens Industries/L.T. Smith Stadium to Kroger Field in Lexingtom because of scheduling conflicts. It approved UK as the host for 2018 in that same meeting.
Multiple attendance records for the state footbal finals were broken in December, in part thanks to warm weather. That was the first time the finals were held in Lexington since 1976.
