LHS, MJ Christian & MJHS -
Parades, pep rallies, alumni gatherings, the crowning of queens and tailgate parties are all vital parts of the high school homecoming experience.

While these activities are great, there's one guarantee -- the main event of the evening starts at 7 p.m. when toe meets leather.

Three Wilson County football programs, Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and Mt. Juliet Christian Academy, hope to celebrate homecoming in a big way this evening with a trio of non-district / regional contests.

Summit at Lebanon
The Blue Devils will host Summit High of Spring Hill tonight at Tribble Field / Watkins Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Tribble Field / Watkins Stadium. Live radio coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. on WANT FM-98.9 and WCOR AM-1490.
A free video feed is available online. Visit UStream.com and search LHS Sports. Coach Sam Harp's Blue Devils come in 1-1 on the season following a 37-7 loss at McGavock last week.

"We've got to do a better job of securing the football," Harp said, "three turnovers is unacceptable."

Summit's Spartans come in 1-2 overall on the heels of a 42-21 home loss Sept. 4 to Shelbyville.

"Summit is a Wing-T team, they're not very big, but from what I've seen on film they get after you. They've got a couple of good backs -- probably their best football players."

Franklin County at Mt. Juliet
After three tough weeks on the road Mt. Juliet High will host Franklin County tonight.

The Golden Bears come in 0-3, but on the heels of a 24-17 overtime loss at undefeated Ravenwood last week.

"It was a loss, but I think that game was a more true indicator of what kind of football team we can be," said MJHS coach Trey Perry.

Franklin County stands 1-2 following a 42-24 loss at Stewarts Creek a week ago.

Houston County at Mt. Juliet Christian
Losers of two straight since opening the season with a 36-6 win over Cornersville, Mt. Juliet Christian Academy welcomes Houston County to Suey Field tonight for homecoming.

The Saints slipped to 1-2 following a 42-6 loss at Knox Webb.

Houston County's Fighting Irish are undefeated after having walloped McEwen 48-14 a week ago. All told, Houston County has outscored three opponents 86-34.

Wilson Central at Siegel
Fresh off a 41-13 home win over Antioch, Wilson Central hits the road tonight for a 7 p.m. game at Siegel High in Murfreesboro.

The Wildcat cranked out over 400 yards rushing last week and face the winless Stars with a multitude of problems.

Siegel dropped a wild 49-30 decision at arch rival Oakland a week ago.

Watertown at Grundy County
Watertown's Purple Tigers are on the road tonight, taking a 2-1 worksheet to Coalmont for a 7 p.m. game with Grundy County.

Coach Gavin Webster's team thumped Cascade 49-18 last week and is shooting for the team's first road win of the 2015 season.

The Yellow Jackets stand 1-2 after whipping Cannon County 37-14 on Sept. 4.
