I have a question. What would the near-future TSSAA classification look like without the 1.8 multiplier slapped on private schools whose desire is to remain in the public school division?
Ooltewah and Rhea County are two of 19 unbeaten teams remaining in TSSAA football this season, but before the two Class 5A teams begin looking at a possible playoff showdown, there is still business requiring their attention.
• Baylor (5-3, 2-2) at Ensworth (6-1, 3-1), 8 • Bradley Central (2-5, 0-3) at Soddy-Daisy (4-4, 1-3) • Central (6-2, 3-2) at Hixson (6-2, 4-0)

• district/region game • Bradley Central (0-3, 2-5) at McMinn County (2-1, 2-5) • Brainerd (2-2, 2-6) at Tyner (1-2, 1-6) • Brentwood Academy (7-1, 3-1) at Baylor (5-2, 2-1)
Storyline: The Red Raiders rake their show to Murfreesboro after a tough rivalry loss to McCallie. Baylor's offense never got going last week, and its defensive front will be tested this week against an Oakland offensive line that includes University of Tennessee commitments Kyle Oliver at TE and Jack Jones at OT.
Front-runner: McCallie (7-0, 3-0). The Blue Tornado have beat two previously unbeaten East/Middle region teams in Ensworth and Baylor.

EVENSVILLE, Tenn. — With the crowd noise inside Rhea County's stadium Friday night, Jacob York couldn't hear anything his coaches or his teammates were yelling at him — and that's a good thing.
Earlier this football season a Soddy-Daisy player was injured seriously enough that the school's athletic trainers and the first responders did not want to move him.
