It's week twelve in this years football season and this Saturday the Southern Conference has three conference games and two out of conference games.

Now that the Mocs have wrapped up both the league championship and the auto-bye to the playoffs, they step out the conference to meet Tennessee Tech of the OVC.  Joining Chattanooga in out of conference play is Mercer. who plays at home against Warner in the Bears final home game of the season.
