JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- The Mississippi High School Activities Association announced several changes to its postseason venues, including moving the football championships from Jackson to the campus stadiums at Mississippi State and Mississippi.

MHSAA executive director Don Hinton said Monday that the football championships will be played at Mississippi State's Davis Wade Stadium in 2014 and 2016 and at Ole Miss' Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in 2015 and 2017.

Southern Mississippi will host the Mississippi/Alabama Football Classic in 2015 and 2017. It will be the first time in the event's 27-year history that the game will be played in Mississippi.

The state's basketball tournament for both boys and girls will be expanded to include the quarterfinals. Most games will be played at the Mississippi Coliseum, but the boys' quarterfinals will be hosted by Jackson State.
