The threat of bad weather on Saturday means that South Carolina’s high school football championships will be played on Friday. The South Carolina High School League has announced that 5A, 4A and 3A title games will be played Friday at the University of South Carolina’s Brice-Williams Stadium and the 2A and A games will be played at Benedict College.

The state championships were actually scheduled for last weekend, but in September, Hurricane Florence wiped out a weekend, which caused the state to vote in favor of moving the championship games to this weekend.
