The annual Red Carpet Bowl date and teams have been announced for the 2021 football season.

The bowl is scheduled for Aug. 27, 2021, at Vicksburg High School. The Vicksburg High Gators and Warren Central High Vikings are the home teams.

Vicksburg will face Germantown and Warren Central will play Forest Hill next year in the big games, and the Viking/Forrest Hill game will be first.

Germantown finished this season with a 4-5 record, and Vicksburg also won 4 games which should make it a competitive match. Forest Hill opted out of the 2020 season and Warren Central is still playing, with a berth in this year’s playoffs.

The two home teams will swap opponents  for the 2022 season.

As of now, most high school teams in Mississippi are in offseason training, preparing for their  next season.
