Both the Ravenwood and Nolensville football teams moved up in the latest Associated Press Top 10 football polls, released Monday.

In Division II-AAA, Brentwood Academy tumbled from the top spot to No. 3, while Battle Ground Academy stayed atop the DII-AA poll. 


Tha Raptors improved to 3-0 with a 28-0 shutout of Franklin in Ravenwood’s second Region 6-6A contest of the season in Week 3. The Raptors, who moved top from No. 4 to No. 3 in the Class 6A poll, will battle Pulaski Academy of Arkansas on Friday. Brentwood maintained a hold on No. 5 in the 6A poll after a decisive 63-0 shutout of Dickson County last week.

In Class 4A, the Knights jumped from No. 8 to No. 6 after a 35-7 Region 5-5A win at Spring Hill in Week 3. Nolensville enters a bye week before kicking off a five-game home stand.

There was also some shifting in Class 5A, where the Page Patriots (3-0, 1-0) secured No. 4 after being tied for third last week despite a wild 34-29 win against Region 5-5A rival Shelbyville Central in Week 3. Summit also moved up from No. 9 to No. 8 in the poll. The Spartans (3-0, 1-0) topped Columbia Central 34-14 last week.

BGA (3-0, 1-0) raced past Goodpasture 42-7 in the Wildcats DII-AA Middle Region opener in Week 3. They maintained their hold on the top spot in the DII-AA standings.

Brentwood Academy (2-1, 0-1) slipped to third after a 28-23 loss to McCallie in Week 3 at home. The Blue Tornado took over the top spot. The Eagles battle Class 6A’s No. 4 Whitehaven in Week 4.
