The Fairfield County Interscholastic League has approved a new football schedule for the next two years. The new schedule that begins this fall will spell the end of traditional Thanksgiving Day games, at least for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 school years.
The new schedule will provide all 17 member schools with nine regular season games and break the league into two divisions.
The winner of each division will play for the FCIAC championship on Thanksgiving Day with the traditional rivalry game being played the weekend before Thanksgiving. Last year Connecticut had 23 schedule Turkey Day games.
