Rhea County travels to Cleveland in our Friday Night Football Game of the Week with a lot on the line in Region 4-5A play.
Everyone is chasing McMinn Co. (5-1, 3-0) but no one is out of it yet.
Rhea County (4-2, 2-0) hasn't played McMinn Co. yet. The Golden Eagles met Cleveland last year for the first time in the regular season since 2012 and won 41-7.
Cleveland (4-3, 1-2) started the season hot with wins over Sevier Co., East Hamilton and Soddy-Daisy but have since been decimated by injuries. The Blue Raiders are missing 11 varsity players. They're down to their fourth quarterback, Skylar Davis, who was previously their top wide receiver.
We'll be live at Cleveland High School before and after the game on Friday night.
