09/13/2015 - From The Press Box: City Football Landscape Not What Everyone Expected

 Heading into Week 4, I wasn't anticipating seeing Lincoln's football landscape changing dramatically.

By now, I would have expected Southeast maybe to be 1-2 or 2-1 and East with a 2-1 record.  But North Star (2-1), Southwest (2-1) and Northeast (2-1) are the front runners for now, while Lincoln High (1-2), East (1-2) and Southeast (0-3) round out the rest of the city standings.

Northeast, though, only had Lincoln High on the schedule (a 20-13 loss).  Everyone else in town plays each other in at least two games.  Still, there's several weeks left in the regular season and another week before district play starts for teams like Southeast, who could still get into the post-season by winning at least three district games.

THE TOP TEN

Not much of a change this week in the UBT Football Top Ten.  Class A still has the frontrunner Bellevue West, followed by Millard West, Omaha Central, Grand Island and Millard North.  Norfolk enters the top ten for the first time at No. 8, after Omaha Burke lost to No. 4 Grand Island 35-14, prompting the Bulldogs to drop out.

Things continue to fly south for Creighton Prep.  The Junior Jays drop out of the ratings, after a 28-20 loss at Central on Friday.  Kearney moves up into the Top Ten as a result.

North Star and Southwest are the only two Lincoln teams in contention for a spot in the rankings.

Class B shows one big change, as Elkhorn falls to No. 8 following a loss at Beatrice on Friday.  The Orangemen, meanwhile, are contenders to make the Top Ten.  Class B will continue to be competitive.  

Waverly remains a team that could return to the top ten, dependent on if teams like Scottsbluff, Elkhorn and Plattsmouth stumble in the weeks to come.
