We are down to the nitty gritty of the 2020 season with only 2 weeks left in the regular season. Plenty is left to be decided and tonight offers up a good set of games both in and out of Region. We also have all of these teams covered in one way or another. Click below each match-up to watch, hear or read something about each team. Here are my 5 Games of the Week in the Mid-State for Week 10. It’s the Friday Five.
1) CPA (6-0) @ Lipscomb Academy (6-2)
After a tough start to the season, Lipscomb Academy has been rolling ever since and the challenge for CPA has been cancelling games because of COVID-19. Other than that, the Lions still look like the team to beat in D-II-AA. Donovan Stewart has capsules of every team in D-II-AA and you can read them below.
2) Independence (5-1) @ Brentwood (6-2)
After dropping their season opener, Independence has won 5 straight by an average of 25 points. Brentwood is looking to follow-up an impressive win over rival Franklin with another big Region win tonight.
