Only hours from now the Friday Night Lights return for Week 4 of the high school football season. A number of intriguing games await fans in Northwest Georgia.

One of the top games perhaps in the entire state pits the undefeated 3-0 Cedartown Bulldogs and star tailback Nick Chubb against local power Ridgeland in Polk County. Ridgeland is 1-1 so far this season.

Few envy the task awaiting the 2-1 Dade County Wolverines who travel to play 2-1 Calhoun with the Yellow Jackets coming off their worst loss in several years. After falling out of the #1 spot in the rankings Calhoun will look to get back on track with a region win in front of the home fans.

A Floyd County classic will be played in Lindale Saturday night as the Pepperell Dragons host the Coosa Eagles in the annual Shrine Game. Pepperell at 0-3 badly needs a win while Coosa tries to improve on their 2-1 mark. Proceeds from the game will be donated to the Shriner’s Hospital.

One of the top ranked teams in the state, 3-0 Cartersville, welcomes North Murray to Weinman Stadium. Elsewhere in Bartow Adairsville is home to Lakeview Fort-Oglethorpe as the two teams open their region schedules.

A pair of Gordon County programs attempt to taste victory for the first time this season as 0-3 Gordon Central hits the road to play the Ringgold Tigers and Coahulla Creek welcomes 0-3 Sonoraville.

In other local action Darlington plays host to King’s Ridge Christian,
1-2 Rockmart welcomes 0-3 Chapel Hill, Chattooga is on the road against Model and 0-3 Armuchee visits 1-2 Murray County.

Finally the Woodland Wildcats attempt to improve on their 0-4 record tonight as they welcome South Paulding and 2-1 Cass plays 2-0 Northwest-Whitfield at Doug Cochran Stadium in White.

The Rome Wolves have the week off.

All of this evening’s games kickoff at 7:30 pm.

Tune in to South 107 for highlights and analysis from 10 pm to midnight.
