This great matchup between the DuPont Manual Crimsons and the Male Bulldogs has been played since 1893. For 125 years both teams have met one the field to battle for the Barrel, Kentucky’s oldest rivalry prize. The Crimsons look to end a losing streak to Male, who has dominated the last four years of meetings between the two schools. The Bulldogs come into the game as the 9th best team in the state, and an 8-1 overall record, while the Crimsons are 5-3.
Male had been a force this season until last week's loss to St. Xavier, their first of the season. The question coming into this one was whether Male would suffer a hangover from that loss or come out angry. They answered that question quickly, scoring on four of their first five possessions. The Male offense, led by QB Garrett Dennis, could not be stopped. Dennis threw three touchdowns and ran for two more, cementing his MVP status in this game. Male took a 41-0 lead in the 3rd quarter and started the running clock. On a nasty and rainy evening, Male ran down the clock and closed this one out with a final score of 48-0. Male continue their recent dominance in "The Old Rivalry" and take home the Barrel.
