ROME, Ga. (AP) -Shorter College and Rome-Floyd County have been awarded the 2008 and 2009 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics football championship games.
The 2008 championship will be played on Dec. 20 and the 2009 game on Dec. 19, both at Barron Stadium, home of the Shorter College Hawks.
Shorter athletic director Bill Peterson and football coach Phil Jones began the process of submitting a formal bid to the NAIA early last year.
``We are excited about the opportunity to put the NAIA national football championship game on a national stage,'' Peterson said.
Ninety NAIA schools play football, and 16 qualify for the playoffs. A team must win three games to reach the championship game.
