First Round Playoff Matchups Set

Several teams throughout Tennessee clinched playoff spots and determined their playoff seeding in the final week of the high school football regular season, which ended Friday night. Eight teams from the Upper Cumberland area will be advancing on into the postseason, with hopes of reaching the Blue Cross Bowl in Chattanooga, December 3-4.

Six of the eight area teams will travel for the opening round of the playoffs. The highest seeded team from the Upper Cumberland in their respective classification is the Upperman Bees, who finished 9-1 and won the Region 4-4A Championship. Upperman will host Soddy Daisy (4-6) in the first round. The Trojans won their last three games of the regular season, but still finished fourth in Region 3-4A.

The other Upper Cumberland team set to host in Round One is Clay County. Despite losing to Gordonsville in Week 11, the Bulldogs (9-1) clinched second place in Region 4-1A, and will host Sale Creek, next Friday. The Panthers (5-5) closed the regular season by winning three of their last four, averaging 64.3 points per game in those wins. They will meet a stingy Clay County defense that shut out four of their 10 opponents, and allowed a mere 8.8 points per game.
