Kris Budden talks with Carter athletic director Chad Smith and Gibbs' head coach Brad Conley before the USA Today High School Sports Game of the Week.
Carter (4-3, 3-0) has been without head coach Heath Woods since the first game of the season. Woods was ejected from that game against Grace and was hospitalized later that night.
Athletic director Chad Smith decided not to name an interim head coach. Woods will not return to the sidelines this season but will resume his duties at the school in mid-November.
Carter is coming off a 34-0 win over Pigeon Forge last week.
Gibbs (4-3, 1-2) started the season 4-0, but has since lost three in a row. The Eagles were pounded by Fulton last week, 48-10. Gibbs quarterback Jay Cade was held to -7 rushing yards in that game, quite a contrast to the 330 yard performance he turned in the previous week against CAK.
Gibbs took the rivalry game last year, 40-20.
