The Virginia high school football state championship games will not be played as scheduled this Saturday.
The Virginia High School League announced Friday that all six of its state title games will be postponed to Sunday due to snow across the state.

The 1A and 2A state title games will be played in Salem, the 3A and 4A games at William & Mary in Williamsburg, and 5A and 6A games at Hampton University in Hampton.
Among local teams, Tuscarora, in Leesburg, will play Highland Springs in the 5A championship game and Westfield, in Chantilly, will play Oscar Smith in the 6A game.
