Nashville Metro schools join the fray in Week 6 and contribute to this week's schedule of more than 140 games across the state of Tennessee. Only 25 games this weekend are region contests.
Schools are continuing to follow the COVID-19 guidelines and mandates and TSSAA believes that every adult and every participant must do their part and follow the guidelines set forth by the association and conduct themselves safely and thoughtfully so that the schools can provide as many opportunities as possible for the student-athletes this fall.
School administrators and coaches are aware of the guidelines and requirements, but the general public can educate themselves on what is being asked of everyone attending and participating in high school games this season by visiting the Return to Play page at TSSAA.org.
Spectators should be prepared to wear masks and have their temperatures checked at the entry gates. Those that are or have recently experienced COVID-19 symptoms will be asked to not enter the stadium. Because stadium seating capacities will be limited to allow for physical distancing, check your school's website or social media accounts for information on ticket availability. It is the host school's discretion to honor passes, or offer any public ticket sales at all, because of capacity restrictions.

Among the many memorable meetings between MBA and Ensworth was the 2014 DII-AAA state championship game in Cookeville. MBA held Ensworth out of the endzone on the Tigers' final drive of the game and capitalized on a missed Ensworth field goal as time expired to take the 10-7 win.
Huntingdon and Milan have met twice in the playoff semifinals. In 2003, Huntingdon's only loss of the regular season had been against Milan, a loss they avenged enroute to a state championship victory and a final record of 14-1. The 2003 title remains Huntingdon's only football championship in four state final appearances (1999, 2003, 2004, 2012). Events would take a similar turn again in 2004 with Milan winning in the regular season only to fall to Huntingdon in the semifinals.
More information about these games and others can be found at the online home of the TSSAA Championships, TSSAAsports.com.
