BluegrassPreps Class 5A Football Rankings (9/28) - Discussion

Recommended Posts

Class 5A

When one door closes, another one opens. Frederick Douglass had to scramble to find another door after the anticipated showdown with Scott County was postponed. Enter Ballard, fresh off a big win the week prior. On paper, a tight contest appeared in the making, but the bucking Broncos battered the Bruins to remind everyone what they're capable of. 

Strides were made from weeks two to three, but Covington Catholic still has kinks to iron out. A sloppy start against Cooper eventually morphed into a lopsided blowout, but the Colonels are still searching for the four quarter efficiency we're accustomed to seeing. They'll attempt to hunt down some Rebels this week and smooth out those rough edges in Florence. 

South Warren avoided falling prey to a potential trap game against Glasgow. The Spartans dog walked the Scotties to set the stage for a monumental clash with top ranked Bowling Green in a game that could have major poll implications next week.

Southwestern has quietly put together one of 5A's best resumes. The Warriors are the only team in the class with three wins over ranked opponents. They've won shootouts and defensive slug fests alike, and they haven't lacked for drama, winning those three games by a total of five points.

Following a humbling defeat at home to Boyle County, the Bluebirds have flown south of the top 10, opening the door for Conner to make its debut. The Cougars have won two straight over Highlands and will look to make it three this Friday. 

1. Bowling Green vs. #5 South Warren 

2. Covington Catholic at Boone County

3. Frederick Douglass vs. Grant County (10/1)

4. Owensboro at Muhlenberg County  (10/1)

5. South Warren at #1 Bowling Green 

6. Scott County vs. 6A Ryle

7. Southwestern at North Laurel 

8. South Oldham vs. Atherton

9. Conner vs. Highlands 

10. North Bullitt at Seneca (10/1)

Top 3 could be a tie, but I think the top 2 favorites right now are Freddy D and Bowling Green.  A lot can change and the next 3 teams probably have something to say about that.  To beat FD you will need a top notch defense and offense.  BG has the defense and is coming along in the offense.  Owensboro has the offense and is coming along in the defense.  CC are champs until someone takes them down.  I expect BG to handle SW.
