"Our kids are certainly excited. Is it pressure -- I think this is what you want. I’d rather us be playing them with something on the line rather than just finishing out the season and getting ready to pack up the equipment in two weeks."

Friendship Christian has won the last two meetings between the schools -- a 14-7 win in 2006 and a 9-7 decision in 2007. FCS has scored an average of 37 points per game while giving up 9.3 ppg. The Commanders shut out Clay Co. 28-0 and Red Boiling Springs 49-0.

TCHS scores an average of 37.2 ppg and allows just 6.75 ppg. The Yellow Jackets have shut out Gordonsville (35-0), Smith County (20-0) and Livingston Academy (35-0).

WATCHING THE SKY -- Officials at both schools are watching the weather.

"We’re concerned about the rain front moving in and just settling here for the rest of the day," Coach McNeal said.

"Trousdale County understands. They’re fine with anything we decide as long as the decision is made by 12 Noon Friday. If it looks we’re going to be socked in with rain, we’ll move the game to Saturday."
