Placeholder Image

A college football playoff system is still two years away, but local football fans can still see playoff football this Saturday.
Bobby Ray Field will be the host site for eight playoff games tomorrow in the Southern Middle Tennessee Youth Football Association.
Local youth teams will be in action in each level of play as championship-game spots will be on the line.
Junior pro games begin the day as the local Volunteers take on the undefeated Manchester Chiefs. The Vols entered the postseason as the No. 5 seed, but face a difficult challenge as the Chiefs went through the regular season with a 6-0 record and outscored opponents 229-6. The game will start at 8:30 a.m.
Another junior pro game will follow as the Warren County Blue Raiders put their 6-0 record on the line against the White County Warriors. The Blue Raiders won the regular season matchup 30-7. Tomorrow’s game is scheduled to start at 10 a.m.
The midget Blue Raiders will also be trying to protect an undefeated record at 2 p.m. The Blue Raiders face the Cowan Lions, a team the Blue Raiders beat 19-0 in the regular season.
At 3:30 p.m., the Pioneer Red pee wee team will face the White County Warriors. Pioneer Red finished the regular season 5-1 and earned the No. 2 seed in the playoffs. Pioneer Red edged the Warriors 19-12 in the regular season.
The oldest division of youth football will play the final two games and the lone battle between McMinnville teams happens at 5 p.m.
The Vols and Blue Raiders will take the field for the first of two senior pro games to complete the day of football. The Vols won the regular season game 21-6 two weeks ago to finish the season with a 5-1 record. The Blue Raiders were 4-2 and are looking for revenge.
In the final game, the 3-3 Warren County Golden Eagles will face the undefeated White County Warriors at 6:30 p.m.
Admission is $3 for adults and $1 for children ages 5-12. Championship games in each league will be held Saturday, Oct. 27 in Manchester.
