McMinn Central

Stars: The Pirates started the year planning to lean heavily on RB Corbin Fitzgerald, but he was injured in their game against Boyd-Buchanan so they turned to Chase Blevins and Triston Adams.

It looks as if the TSSAA did a fairly decent job this season with its playoff pairings but there always are those items that can be scrutinized.

When Rob Spence left Pikeville on Friday evening, he did so thinking his football team was through for 2014, so the Chattanooga Christian coach got quite a surprise Saturday morning when he received a call saying the Chargers were in the state playoffs.

McMinn Central quarterback Jackson Guy had one thought as he raced around the left end on a keeper sweep in the fourth quarter of the Chargers’ visit Friday night to Chattanooga Central.

Storyline: The Red Raiders have lost four straight games -- to the state's top three teams in Division II-AA and to an Oakland team ranked among the best in Class 6A -- and are looking for momentum before the playoffs. Defensively, Baylor needs to get better quickly as it has allowed more than 30 points per game in this four-game slide.

Storyline: Since a season-opening loss to Knox Catholic, the Irish have posted eight consecutive wins with an average victory margin of 34 points.

(All kickoffs at 7:30 Eastern unless noted)

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.

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?

• 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)

ENGLEWOOD, Tenn. — If the Loudon and McMinn Central football teams came into Friday's game as mirror images of each other, the Redskins shattered the glass they were looking at pretty quickly.
