With undefeated Mt. Juliet High idle, there are only three Wilson County prep football teams playing at home tonight.
Fresh of its first victory of the season, Wilson Central High (1-4) will host Centennial High of Franklin tonight at 7 p.m. in the Wildcat homecoming game. The Cougars come in 1-3 on the season after a 24-22 loss to Independence last week.
Cookeville at Lebanon -- A pair of longtime rivals hook up tonight at Nokes-Lasater Field as Lebanon hosts Cookeville High. Lebanon stands 1-4 after last weeks 10-7 loss at Wilson Central while Cookeville comes to town 3-2 after handling Warren County 38-16 a week ago.
Cookeville uses a bunch of formations and personnel groupings, said LHS coach Troy Crane, our defensive coaches have had a full week getting our kids prepared for what theyll see.
QB Patrick Maynard is expected to be closer to 100 percent with an injured ankle, while WR Taylor Bryan returns to the field after missing three games due to a knee injury.

MJCA at Kings Acad. -- The Saints (1-5) are riding high after a come-from-behind 28-23 home win over Riverside Christian last Friday. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. CDT in Seymour. I think were going to play well Friday night, MJCA coach Mark Harrison said, weve got a good matchup, theyre numbers are a lot like ours.
