Tiger Football is ranked the highest they have been all season this week in the latest AP Poll and Litkenhous Ratings.  With a bye week to rest up for the trip to Cincinnati St. Xavier next Friday, the Tigers are in good position for a playoff push in just two weeks!

The Tigers are 3-1 against fellow 6A Top 10 teams with the only loss coming to No. 1 ranked Male.  Just like the SEC West in College Football, the Super District is dominating the Litkenhous Ratings with all four teams being in the Top 5 of the poll ranked by computers.

With the big game coming up, let’s take a look at the weekly rankings from our media friends and the Courier-Journal.  Tiger Football stayed put at No. 6 in the AP Poll, but jumped from No. 9 to No. 4 in the Courier-Journals Litkenhous Ratings.

The Tigers are ahead of their opponent this week by three spots in the Litkenhous Ratings, but behind the Rocks in the AP Poll. Rankings are rankings and are especially not important in a rivalry game.  The best team will be seen on Friday, but for now we’ll overanalyze these two polls while we wait.
