Prep Football Reaches The Mid Point Of The Season

Wednesday, September 22, 2021

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.

Tennessee Vols fans hit a new low at the end of the UTK vs Ole Miss last evening.
