Week 8 saw two of Central Georgia's top teams go down, with Houston Co. losing against Lee Co. and Northside losing to Valdosta, and some schools, like Twiggs Co. with their win over Stratford and Tattnall with their decisive win over Mt. De Sales, made statements that central Georgia teams are ready for the postseason.

With that in mind, the FFN crew cannot wait to get out and about around central Georgia and check out this week's top high school matchups!

This week we will be starting out Friday evening live in Macon at FPD for #Tailgate13, which will air on Eyewitness News at 5 and 6 p.m. on 13WMAZ. The Vikings will then host their rivals, the Eagles from Stratford Academy at 7:30 p.m.

Once #Tailgate13 ends, the FFN team will hit the roads and check out central Georgia's best football. Here's where you will be able to find our reporters:

  • Lee Co. at Northside
  • Taylor Co. at Hawkinsville
  • Peach Co. at Rutland
  • Stratford at FPD
  • Twiggs Co. at Tattnall Square
  • Jackson at Central
  • Washington Co. at Dodge Co.
  • Upson-Lee at Perry
  • East Laurens at Bleckley Co.

And as always, we will also be keeping our eyes on the rest of the central Georgia teams taking the field on Friday night.

You can catch the highlights of all 10 games the FFN team attend on Football Friday Night at 11:35 p.m. on 13WMAZ! Frank Malloy, Ben Jones, Marvin James and Jonathan Perez will take you through the games and add in some scores on the Zaxby's Football Friday Night scoreboards, introduce you to the Chevrolet Fan of the Week, give the Jeff Smith Ford Quiz Question and Answer, the Central Georgia Technical College Play of the Day and the McDonald's Ribrocker, along with finding out who won the week and has the season lead in the Jones Zone!
