Week four of the football season is upon us, with more than 140 games scheduled for Friday night. Seventeen region games are being played across the state this weekend as well.

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.

Historical Matchups

This weekend's game between Greenback and Oneida is a rematch of a Class A semifinal playoff game from 1992. Oneida would win the Dec. 4 meeting 17-12 under the direction of legendary head coach Jim May. Oneida, with its stingy defense and a determined ground game, defeated BGA the next week 13-10 for the school's first and only state football championship.

More information about these games and others can be found at the online home of the TSSAA Championships, TSSAAsports.com.
