(WVUE) -

In the preseason it appeared the Catholic League was a two-horse race. Rummel and John Curtis fighting for the title. After Holy Cross upset Rummel, nothing is guaranteed.

"Anybody that makes that assumption has a great opportunity to get beat, and be disappointed," said Curtis Head Coach J.T. Curtis. "Every week is going to be a challenge, every week is a step up in play. It's the very reason I play a difficult preseason schedule. I play good teams, because I know I'm going to face them through the year. Does it takes it toll, does it have some negative effects. Overall, it benefits your team to play that type of competition, because that's what you're going to face week in and week out."

St. Aug brings an impressive 5-1 record into their matchup with John Curtis. The Purple Knights are undefeated in the Catholic League, and no doubt have J.T. Curtis' attention.

"It's St. Aug, that's what it is. They got good athletes, they're well coached. Coach Jones has done a great job there in a short period of time. They have skilled athletes, and they play hard. A lot of pride in what they do, and how they do it. It'll be a highly competitive game. If you look over the course of the last five years, we played them when Leonard Fournette was a junior and senior, and they were highly competitive games. This will be the exact same thing," said Curtis.

This is a tough string of games for the John Curtis Patriots. After St. Aug this week, they face a resurgent Holy Cross next week, then the week after the Rummel Raiders.

    For the first time since 2013, the Saints record sits over .500. The Saints are riding a 3-game winning streak into Green Bay this Sunday. Drew Brees and the offense are doing what they do, score a lot of points. But the big story with the Black and Gold is the defense. They scored three touchdowns against Detroit. It took the unit 74 games combined to get three defensive scores before Sunday. Brees likes the position of his team right now, but there's still a lot of football left i...more>>

    LSU got bounced out of my AP poll after an awful showing at Mississippi State. I thought it was going to be a LONG time until they got back in my poll. Well I was wrong. Two back-to-back wins against top 25 teams puts the Tigers back in the rankings good graces. The Tigers come back in at No. 23.  The big mover in my poll, the Penn State Nittany Lions. After a lackluster performance at Syracuse, Clemson surrendered the No. 2 spot. Penn State could lose their lofty perch this wee...
