The midpoint of the 2021 football season is upon us with teams across the state facing their Week 6 opponents this weekend. The TSSAA scoreboard lists the 168 games scheduled to be played.

The 2021 BlueCross Bowl state football championships will be held December 2-4, 2021 at Finley Stadium in Chattanooga. The TSSAA Board of Control selected Chattanooga as host of the 2021 and 2022 football championships.

Opened in 1997, W. Max Finley Stadium is a 20,421-seat stadium located on Chattanooga's 20th Street near the interchange of Interstate 24 and Highway 27. Besides serving as the home of Mocs Football, Finley Stadium hosted the NCAA FCS National Championship from 1997 to 2009. It is also host to international and high school soccer, including the U.S. Women's National Team, high school football games, national lacrosse tournaments, and concerts.

TSSAA encourages everyone -- administrators, coaches, officials, and fans -- to work together to follow the protocols that local host schools have in place so that our student-athletes have the opportunity to enjoy athletic competition throughout this new year. Although most TSSAA mandates from a year ago are no longer in place, it is important that visiting teams and spectators adhere to the rules or requirements instituted by local school boards, municipalities and other government agencies where they are traveling. TSSAA believes that every adult and every participant should do their part and conduct themselves safely and thoughtfully so that the schools can provide as many opportunities as possible for the student-athletes this fall.

COVID-19 Standings

TSSAA has updated the scoreboard, schedules and standings to show wins for the schools whose opponents canceled due to COVID-19.

The schools listed below were awarded a Week 5 win:

Alcoa High School
Bluff City High School
Brentwood Academy
Carter High School (Region Only)
Coalfield High School (Region Only)
Jackson Christian School
McEwen High School
Unicoi Co. High School

If a school is forced to cancel a contest due to COVID-19 this football season, the game will be considered a “no contest” and the team will not receive a loss on their schedule. The school who is able to play will receive a win for playoff seeding purposes. They may schedule a replacement opponent, but the result of the newly scheduled contest must count in the school’s overall record in place of the “COVID-19” win. A school’s overall, regular season record cannot include more than 10 results.

Contests where both teams were unable to play due to COVID-19 are considered "no-contests" and have been removed from the schedules.
