2A Game of the Week: 2A #5 Lexington Christian Academy vs. 3A #6 Lexington Catholic

By DevilMayCare - Lexington Catholic and Lexington Christian Academy have combined for 3 state championships and 11 regional titles in the last 12 years. Despite all the success that these two Fayette County programs have experienced over that time, this will only be the fourth meeting between the two schools on the gridiron. The Knights have won each of those three previous encounters. The battle of the Lexington privates has been dormant since a 62-0 Catholic romp in 2010. Both teams enter this year's contest with state championship aspirations in their respective classes. Lexington Catholic (2-1) has... Read More →

5A Notebook (8/30): The passing of the Torch

By JDEaston - For the first time since I have been writing articles, we have a new number 1 in class 5A. Bowling Green was defeated for the first time since 2015, the Purples ran off 28 straight wins during that time. While the Purples don’t drop far in the rankings, they must still pass the torch to our new number one, Covington Catholic. Covington Catholic has been very impressive thus far with a win over 6A Ryle and complete domination over 3A Lexington Catholic. Last week’s notebook touched on the fact that Bowling Green’s win over 6A North Hardin wasn’t as impressive as the final score indicated,... Read More →

By ATLCat - From deep in the heart of Booger Branch, KY comes The Swami. Last year he honored us with his presence as he predicted individual outcomes for team's seasons. This year he has agreed to dust off his crystal ball and share his weekly predictions for Class 2A each week. If you have a specific 2A game that is not included, feel free to ask and we can see if the Swami can calibrate his sooth saying and offer a bonus pick just for you.

1A Notebook 8/28 - We May Be Little But...

By Voice of Reason - The top teams in Class 1A made a point last week. So many times it is said that the little school should not beat the big school. Well, anyone who thinks that had better not read on - because you won't like what happened with the top teams in 1A last week. The top teams in 1A almost all played teams in higher classes last week. Several of those bigger school opponents were also ranked. That did not matter at all to the 1A schools. In games where a 1A team played a team from a larger class, the 1A schools won 8 and only lost 3. Take that big guys! 1A Tops the Big Guys Leading the way on... Read More →


Class 6A Notebook 8/28: Top 4 undefeated: only 5 others remain unbeaten

By thsrocks - Last week’s prediction threads saw the BGP faithful successfully chose 4 out of 6 winners. Pleasure Ridge Park surprised Bowling Green 35-21 and Tates Creek was defeated by Douglass 49-22. Trinity, Male, Scott County, and Simon Kenton held up their end of the bargain and met the BGP expectations. Two weeks in and Class 6A has only 9 of 33 teams undefeated. Sixteen 6A teams lost to lower division Kentucky teams in the first two games: 2A-6, 3A-1, 4A-1, 5A-8. Six lost to 6A only (Henry Clay, Bryan Station, Tates Creek, Lafayette, Boone County, and Meade County). Two lost to out of state... Read More →


BluegrassPreps Football Rankings (8/28)

By Ram - Class 1A Only two weeks into the season and a pecking order is already shaping up. Everyone knew Beechwood and Hazard would be in the picture, and following a pair of quality wins over 5A Harlan County and 2A Lloyd Memorial they have confirmed that appointment. The mystery is starting to unravel as to who may be able to challenge them. Kentucky Country Day and Paintsville have both opened the season in an impressive manner and have a chance to cement their contender status with tough games. Louisville Holy Cross has probably been the most pleasant surprise and they have a chance to make a... Read More →


Class 4A Notebook (8/28): The Defense Begins

By DragonFire - While much of 4A’s rankings crashed and burned a week ago, Johnson Central enjoyed their usual “Week 0” bye week and took it all in from high atop their 4A summit. Last year’s defending champions did not enter with an overly long win streak thanks to a regular season loss to Belfry, but did enter with wins in their opening game of every season since falling to Boyle County in the 2010 season opener. For that matter, Johnson Central has not lost before the last game of the regular season in any season since 2012. So there was a pretty good chance that Matney’s Golden Eagles squad would come...

Class 2A Notebook 8/28- An Impressive Showing Against The Largest Class

By ATLCat - The Butler Win Did It DeSales is no stranger to playing 6A teams. They have made a habit of taking on the State’s largest classification during their sensational run over the past decade. When DeSales took down 6A Ballard in their season opener it caught everyone’s attention, still yet fans of the Colts tempered expectations waiting to see how their team would fare against a Butler team that had began to get some Top 10 consideration. The Colts found themselves in a good ole fashioned tug of war in what would be one of Friday’s most exciting and well played games from across the State.... Read More →


1A Game of the Week: 1A #8 Louisville Holy Cross at 2A #4 DeSales

By Bac2369 - It's that time again - time for the annual battle of small school bragging rights in Louisville. In week 2 we shall see 1A Louisville Holy Cross play at Louisville DeSales. Taking a look back at recent history of this match up the win loss record is kind of one sided. If you are familiar with this series then you should know Holy Cross hasn't beaten DeSales since 2010. The last win before that takes us all the way back to the 4 class setup in 2006. In the past 11 years DeSales has won 9 times and is currently holding a 6 game win streak over Holy Cross. So we can say DeSales has owned... Read More →

Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 08/27/17

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2017 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 1 Edition The top story line this week is an unprecedented losing streak by our Top 10. In the 3 years I’ve been doing this, I don’t think we have ever had a week where 6 of the Top 10 saw defeat in the same week! MANY angles here, but I feel at least most of them are fielding younger squads. Also think all will be better in the long run for scheduling well. BUT this means BIG shakeups in our Top 10 Power Rankings! Let’s get right to it! Week 1 Top 10: 10) Greenwood (5A) – Preseason Rank: 7 - 2017 Record 1-1;... Read More →


3A Notebook: Corbin Clips Alcoa to Move to Head of the Class

By gchs_uk9 - With Sizemore Out Front, Redhounds Power to Victory and Top Ranking In 2016, Corbin averaged 37.6 points per game en route to a 12-2 record and a second consecutive appearance in the Class 3A state semifinals. While the offense has yet to hit those inflated targets from last year, on Saturday night Coach Justin Haddix's Redhounds picked up perhaps the biggest win in his four year tenure with a 22-21 overtime victory over fifteen time Tennessee state champions Alcoa. Game two of the Cumberland Falls Pigskin Classic was a defensive struggle throughout. Alcoa finished with 216 total... Read More →
