Rivalries hit a high in Week 6

Week 6 USA Today High School Game of the Week will feature Powell at Clinton. Both teams have similar records, the Dragons do have one more loss than the Panthers making them 3-3 vs. 3-2. Clinton has not been able to defeat Powell since 2009 and this year might be there first realistic opportunity the past few years. This district rivalry will not be one to miss! The broadcast of this match-up will start live at 7.

If you couldn't already tell from their name, Morristown East and Morristown West are two schools that aren't strangers to one another. They even share the same home field; luckily there has not been scheduling errors. In the past 12 years the 10-2 record of their match-ups favors the West, but their 2013 season records are flip-flopped when compared to previous years and its a year looking great for the East. The Hurricanes have a strong, solid four wins on their record while the West has only collected one win from Whitley County located in Kentucky. This district match-up will have a great atmosphere as the entire town will come out for it, but the game will not be as exciting. The Hurricanes are going to swirl the Trojans in a whirlwind and leave them dizzy once this game is over.

Maryville should take an easy win on the road this week at Heritage. Heritage is 1-4 while Maryville stands undefeated. The Rebels have won each of their games by at least three touchdowns. This district game will not even be fair. The Mountaineers are going to have to buckle down strong so they don't get blown off the mountain they have been struggling to climb this year.

William Blount will host their district opponent, Lenoir City, for Week 6. Both teams stand at a 2-3 record and have struggled to really stand out this year. This game should be a close one and will test each team on both sides of the ball facing up to an opponent that performs around the same difficulty level.

Catholic will not have to do much fighting this Friday as they host Kingston. Kingston has not been able to win one game this season and the Irish currently are undefeated. The Yellowjackets are going to have to pray for a miracle to happen to take down this Catholic school.

Another rivalry district match-up at South-Doyle who will host Seymour. If records are compared, South-Doyle should take the W in this game. Cherokee Joc Bruce has made this rivalry prominently known via twitter the past week. This is a game everyone is looking forward to and will be one you will not want to miss.

Once again, the Falcons are on the scavenge for their next victim. They will travel to Pigeon Forge to take on the Tigers. This week is not looking to well for Pigeon Forge as it looks like they will become the prey. Fulton is averaging 58 points a game and allowing an average of five points. This should once again be another easy week for Fulton.

Campbell County could sneak out with another win this week as they host Oak Ridge. Oak Ridge does have a strong record and a good first half of the year; however, the Cougars have been on a roll this season and will be hard to stop.

Jefferson County will be hosting Cocke County in another district match-up. Cocke County has not been so hot this season and things will be looking up for the Patriots. Jefferson County is coming off of a win against William Blount and even had this past week's Defensive Player of the Week. They will show lots of momentum on Cocke County.

Halls will visit Karns which should turn out to be a good game. Neither team is having the best season and both could desperately use a win considering neither has experienced even one W thus far. The past two games Halls has been unable to score. If the offense can not step up, Karns will definitely have this one in the bag and get their first win.

Some more games that you will be able to check the highlights of tomorrow night on the Blitz include: Central at Anderson County, Hardin Valley at Farragut, Union County at Carter, Bearden at West, and Cherokee at Sevier County.
