Storyline: After playing tough against top-ranked Brentwood Academy last week, Baylor has another rugged task in this Division II-AA East/Middle Region game.

• 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)
Storyline: The Eagles complete the Scenic City swing after coming to town and blasting McCallie last week.

• 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.
In a tough District 5-AAA loss last Friday to McMinn County, Soddy-Daisy quarterback Hunter Maynor set a city single-game passing record by throwing for 451 yards.
Front-runner: McCallie (7-0, 3-0). The Blue Tornado have beat two previously unbeaten East/Middle region teams in Ensworth and Baylor.
