Both Alabama's Bryant-Denny Stadium and Auburn's Jordan-Hare Stadium were removed from the AHSAA Super 7 High School Football Championship rotation on Wednesday, the AHSAA announced.

The Super 7, which is a 3-day event for all of the AHSAA high school football championships, had used both Alabama and Auburn's stadiums as rotating hosts for the event since 2009.

With the College Football Playoff's expansion to 12 teams and the incorporation of on-campus games in the first round, the AHSAA determined there would be too many potential conflicts to host the Super 7 at the same sites that could be hosting first round CFP games in early-mid December.

UAB's Protective Stadium in Birmingham will host the event next season, and South Alabama has shown interest in joining the future rotation.
