    Pretty sure it's Highlands with a G in there somewhere.

    Highlands scoring 24 is more likely than Cov Cath only scoring 17.

    If the Colonels only score 17 that would mean AJ woke up on a train to Amarillo Friday morning.

Last season and 2006 are the only times I can really remember Cov Cath being anywhere near favorite for the game.

    Anyone else?
    I would say 2015 it was kind of up for grabs or neither was the favorite? Or was Cov Cath supposed to be favorite by .5 points? Don't know, Highlands beat them in park hills.

    Will be on CCH streaming radio but don't think any video since we lost the streams of NKYSports.com. You can get the audio stream on covcath.org

    I think on the left there is a link to streams....

    Is the first game in 2015 the "new pants" game? If so, yes, I'd say many thought CovCath was a favorite that night. Then they got boat-raced (again) and that was that.

    Highlands was MUCH the best for many, many, many years. Fact. They aren't now. They likely will be again at some point in the future.

    I thought the white pants game was Hoge's senior year when he juked out like 49 dudes for a 60 td run on sports center? 2015 both squads were pretty even, AJs sophomore year.

    No this was a game where CCH led most of game, with Highlands pulling it out towards the end something like 14-10.

    The first game in 2015 was HHS 14-10. CCH went up 10-0 and HHS scored in 2nd and 3rd Q's to win 14-10.

    CovCath has better players and better coaches without a doubt.
    I this game stays within 20 points I would be surprised IMO.

    I think CovCath is a 27 point favorite... but Rivalry games are always a concern... the Troy vs So. Alabama game is a perfect example... Troy beats LSU at LSU, then loses to a 1 -4 So Alabama team who was just plain awful the weeks before... Rivalries have a way of skewing the odds... having said that... Colonels 49 - Birds 21
