Being one of the most dominant programs in the country, the St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders get the best shot from every team that they face off with. They first met with the Ft. Lauderdale Flying L’s in 2015, and have a 6-0 record in the series, playing each year until 2019. After two years off, the teams are meeting on the gridiron for the seventh time, and it is sure to be a battle. Even with the lopsided record, the game does not mean any less to Ft. Lauderdale, and they are sure to be fired up for this matchup as they aim to upset the preseason number 5 team in the country, and St. Thomas Aquinas hopes to prove to everyone why they are so highly ranked.
