LOUISIANA (KPLC) - The LHSAA select schools will not participate in the annual Allstate Sugar Bowl Prep Classic at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in 2019. The group of select schools voted to turn down the LHSAA’s offer to play their championship games at the dome.

The LHSAA released a statement which said that there were 39 select football schools that voted to not play in the Prep Classic. On the other side, 32 voted in favor of continuing to play alongside the non-select schools in the Superdome.

The LHSAA also pointed out that of the 39 schools that voted against participating in the Prep Classic, only 14 have previously played in the Superdome.

The select schools will reportedly be choosing between one of three college sites for its annual football championships. According to a report from Crescent City Sports, UL Lafayette, Tulane and Southeastern have all expressed interest.
