FRISCO (AP) – The FCS championship game is staying in North Texas for at least three more years.

The NCAA on Wednesday announced a three-year extension to stage its Football Championship Subdivision title game at FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, a growing suburb north of Dallas.

North Dakota State and Sam Houston State will play in this season’s game on Jan. 5, a rematch of last year’s game the Bison won 17-6. It will be the third FCS championship game in a row played in Frisco, and the extension will keep the game there through at least the 2015 season.

The game is sold out for the second year in a row, with a crowd of more than 20,000 expected again.
