Week Four Review:

McCracken County stays in the BGP top 10 and proves they deserve to be there. Paducah Tilghman makes a surprise entry into BGP top 20 at #20 as they had won 7 straight before losing 2 this week. Marshall County looks to rebound and show they are a top 20 deserving team, while Murray still shows they are a very good team, waiting to be noticed. Here is the week 4 review:

They will play Crittenden County and Poplar Bluff (MO) this coming week.
