Stagg Bowl to remain in Salem through 2009

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, the NCAA's
Division III football championship game, will remain in Salem, Va.,
at least through 2009.

The Division III Football Committee said Thursday the Stagg Bowl
would return to Salem Stadium, its home the past 15 years.

"The City of Salem and the Stagg Bowl have become synonymous as
the last stop on the road to a Division III football
championship," said Wayne Burrow, the NCAA's director of
championships. "The city and the Old Dominion Athletic Conference
have displayed the ability to host and administer a first-class
bowl game."

This year's game will be played on Dec. 15. The 2008 game will
be on Dec. 20, and the 2009 game will be played on Dec. 19.
