Features Overlapping Labels

I suspect I already know the answer to this, but I'm going to throw it out there anyway.

I am wondering if it is possible to have feature classes overlap the label of another feature class (not annotation). I'm working in a township grid, and the township label is a large label that is intended to be in the background with other features appearing on top of it. I can accomplish this using annotations and putting them in the correct order, but it's an extra step that I would like to eliminate if at all possible. I know you can have labels overlap each other by changing the label weight, but I'm not sure about having a feature overlap the label.

Any ideas, or is this not currently possible?
