BluegrassPreps Class 3A Football Rankings (9/28) - Discussion

Recommended Posts

Class 3A

District play began for much of the Top Ten in Class 3A and after two weeks of surprising scores, things settled in a bit in Week Three. The most noticeable score, however, was unranked Mercer County topping Christian Academy - Louisville in overtime on a 27-yard Noah Davis field goal. The win pushed the Titans into eighth this week, while the Centurions dropped to ninth. Mercer coach David Buchanan will face his old team, Mason County, this weekend, while Christian Academy-Louisville will look to stop their two-game losing streak at home against Henry County.

The second new arrival isn't really new, as they've been ranked all along. However, after two weeks of being sidelined due to Covid restrictions, the Ashland Tomcats roared out of the gate with a 44-6 trouncing of Bourbon County. Ashland moves up a spot to number six and will face a second straight road challenge, this time at neighborhood rival Raceland.

DeSales maintains their spot at the top of our rankings, but travel restrictions will strip away what should have been a Top Ten showdown with Paducah Tilghman this week. As of press time, both the Colts and Blue Tornado are without games this Friday. Meanwhile, second-ranked Belfry, fifth-ranked Elizabethtown, and seventh-ranked Bardstown should all be heavy favorites this weekend.

We finish the Top Ten with two terrific matchups. First, number three Bell County travels to Rockcastle County in a meeting of old rivals with the likely number one seed in District 5 on the line. Bell handled Rockcastle twice last season and it will be interesting the see if the gap has closed in 2020. Fourth-ranked Russell will play host to 6A power Simon Kenton, who is licking their wounds after being beaten by Johnson Central. Russell's stingy defense will look to stop a balanced Simon Kenton offense that averages 334 yards per game.
