Here’s a look at the Nashville area’s top 10 games for Week 6 of the Tennessee high school football season. MBA host Brentwood Academy highlights this week’s lineup of games in the Nashville area.

game of the week

MBA (5-0) at Brentwood Academy (4-1)

When: 7 p.m. Friday.

Marcel Reed vs. George MacIntyre. Deuce Scott vs. Johnothan Moore. The offensive line of Brentwood Academy vs. the defensive front of MBA.

These two schools have a storied rivalry, and this year’s matchup has as many fun stories to follow as any in the past. MBA is yet to be proven, while Brentwood Academy has racked up four straight wins winning by an average of 28.5 points.

Kreager’s prediction: MBA 34, Brentwood 28

Spears prediction: MBA 24, Brentwood Academy 21

WEEK 6 AREA CLASSIFICATIONS:Brentwood Academy, MBA set for top 5 showdown

Rockvale (4-1) at Nolensville (5-0)

When: 7 p.m. Friday.

Rockvale scored the biggest win in program history last Friday, beating top-ranked Caleb Herring and Riverdale for the first time in the state, 20-7.

As good as the Rockets’ defensive performance was, they face a bigger challenge against the Knights. Rockvale won this game last season 33-15, but Nolensville’s offense is healthy and averaging 38.8 points, thanks to Coby Walton, Samson Johnson and Chance Fitzgerald.

Kreager’s prediction: Nolensville 28, Rockvale 21

Spears prediction: Nolensville 38, Rockvale 24

Smyrna (4-0) at Riverdale (3-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday.

Is this the week someone stops Arion Carter?

Carter received offers from Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky, Tennessee and USC over the past week as he led the Bulldogs with 372 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns.

Riverdale’s defense has struggled in both of its losses, giving up 34 points to Blackman and 20 points to Rockvale. The Warriors will need to have some efficiency on offense to beat the Bulldogs.

Kreager’s prediction: Smyrna 28, Riverdale 14

Spears prediction: Smyrna 24, Riverdale 17

Green Hill (4-1, 2-0 Region 5-5A) at White County (4-1, 1-1)

When: 7 p.m. Friday.

White County suffered a heartbreaking last-second loss to Mt. Juliet 45-43 last week after taking the lead with 17 seconds remaining.

Malaki Dowell continued his streak in that game, rushing for 330 yards and four touchdowns.

Things don’t get any easier for the Warriors. They get a team from Green Hill with plenty of weapons to rely on, like Kaleb Carver and Brax Lamberth. The Hawks beat Hillsboro just 17-7, but have played well defensively since their Week 1 loss to Siegel.

Kreager’s prediction: 42 Green Hill, 35 White County

Spears prediction: Green Hill 38, White County 35

Nashville East (5-0) at Independence (3-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday.

Poor quarterback play has plagued Independence’s offense for the first five weeks, but Brooks Sapone led the Eagles to a 27-17 victory over Franklin.

Independence triumphed in this matchup last season, but their passing defense has struggled this season. That doesn’t bode well against East Nashville, which has trailed deep behind Zacc Beard, Frank Gordon and Trey Joyner.

Kreager’s prediction: East Nashville 21, Independence 14

Spears prediction: Independence 27, East Nashville 24

Cane Ridge (4-1) at CPA (3-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday.

Cane Ridge beat La Vergne 27-13 in Week 5 to get back on track, but managed only 228 yards total offense.

The Ravens will need to be much more efficient to get past the CPA at home. The Lions posted a 35-14 victory over Goodpasture and have had success with Thomas Vaccaro and Braden Streeter splitting time at quarterback.

Kreager’s prediction: CPA 35, Cane Ridge 28

Spears prediction: CPA 34, Cane Ridge 21

Page (5-0) at Giles County (4-1)

When: 7 p.m. Friday.

Page’s Colin Hurd threw his first interceptions of the season against Franklin County, but still passed for 219 yards with two touchdowns in the Patriots’ 36-14 win over the Rebels.

Hurd has excelled leading Page’s offense, but the Patriots have also been strong defensively, allowing only 11.6 points per game. This will be the biggest task the Bobcats’ offense has faced this season.

Kreager’s prediction: Page 24, Giles County 14

Spears prediction: Page 35, Giles County 24

Superior (3-2) at Watertown (2-3)

When: 7 p.m. Friday.

Is there any team that needs a win more than Upperman?

After starting the season 3-0, the Bees have lost games at Fayetteville and Stone Memorial. The Bees struggled offensively in both losses, posting a combined 20 points.

Watertown beat Whites Creek 32-0 last week, but the Purple Tigers struggled offensively in losses to DeKalb County, Fayetteville and Westmoreland, averaging 8.7 points.

Kreager’s prediction: 35 Upperman, 14 Watertown

Spears prediction: Superior 27, Watertown 13

Portland (4-1) at Macon County (5-0)

When: 7 p.m. Friday.

Portland freaked out in Week 5, beating Northeast just 22-21.

Those kinds of struggles on offense won’t help them against Macon County, who will try to turn it into a high-scoring contest. The Tigers have scored more than 40 points three times and are averaging 35.

Kreager’s prediction: Portland 20, Macon County 14

Spears prediction: Macon County 38, Portland 21

Davidson Academy (2-2) at Nashville Christian (2-2)

When: 7 p.m. Friday.

The return of Courtland Simmons will help a Bears offense that has started to turn a corner.

Davidson Academy has won two straight games scoring 39 points against Hunters Lane and 38 points against BGA. Nashville Christian has also found his offense in two straight wins, scoring 31 points against BGA and 49 against Clarksville Academy.

Kreager’s prediction: 42 Davidson Academy, 21 Nashville Christian

Spears prediction: Davidson Academy 31, Nashville Christian 21

In the past week: Kreager (9-1), Spears (7-3). Season: Kreager (37-13), Spears (34-16)
