Friday, Oct. 11

Bradley Central (4-2, 1-1) at Cleveland (4-3, 2-1)

• Early peek: Both old rivals are coming off narrow District 5-AAA losses, Bradley by two points to league-leading Ooltewah and Cleveland by one to East Hamilton, the second-place team. It likely will be a passing game, a duel between the Bears' Brett Standifer and the host Blue Raiders' Austin Herink. Bradley has won two in a row in the rivalry, including 16-14 last season.

Red Bank (2-4, 2-0) at East Ridge (3-4, 2-1)

• Early peek: Who's going to be the also-ran? Red Bank will have had two weeks to prepare for this one, and the Lions coaching staff probably was present at Hixson last Friday to see the Pioneers suffer their first 6-AA defeat. This also could be a QB battle featuring the Pioneers' Jo Jo Tillery and the Lions' Michael Robinson, who was slowed earlier in the season with an ankle injury. Red Bank has won four straight in the series since moving into 6-AA and five straight dating back to 2004. The Pioneers' last win was 21-7 a decade ago.

Notre Dame (4-2) at Polk County (5-1)

• Early peek: The programs haven't played since 2010, and Polk enjoys a four-game win streak in the series, dating back to 2007. The Irish showed last week against Signal Mountain that they could control "name" backs, but they'll see another this week in Zach Miller. Polk will face a serious speed challenge in Notre Dame receiver and returner Kareem Orr and running back Auston Banks, the fastest duo they have met this year.

Rhea County (5-1) at Soddy-Daisy (2-4)

• Early peek: A neighborhood rivalry with Soddy-Daisy having won the last two meetings. Rhea moved into a new district (6-AAA) this season and leads there with a 3-0 league record. The Golden Eagles' only loss, a surprising one, came 24-17 at Walker Valley. After winning their first two, Soddy-Daisy's Trojans have lost four in a row, the closest by 19 points to Tyner two weeks ago.

Oakland (6-0) at Baylor (5-1)

• Early peek: Oakland comes in on a six-game tear with a defense that has held four opponents to 14 or fewer points and three of those to eight or less, including a 39-0 shutout against Arlington. Baylor, meanwhile, just had too much blocking up front and George Porter ran amok, gaining 183 yards in a 38-14 win over rival McCallie. The Patriots have scored at least 35 points in five of their wins, while Baylor has given up 19 or fewer in its five wins. Three of those were eight or fewer.
