The Wildcats are 3-2 after rallying for a come-from-behind 28-27 victory over Murphysboro last Friday night.
“We know we will have to play really, really well to give ourselves a chance to win,” A-J football head coach Brett Detering said. “They’ve got a lot of weapons.”

Backfield threats for Nashville are seniors Luke Ehret and juniors Connor Gladson and Radyn Shwartzkopf.
Top receivers are seniors Will Barczewski and Nick Miller and junior Evan Knolhoff.
