St. Thomas Aquinas received mixed news on Tuesday.
The school, which opens the season in the nationally televised Kirk Herbstreit Challenge in Ohio, was informed its Aug. 30 contest vs. Cincinnati Elder will indeed count in its regular season records.
While the news gives added importance to the game, it also means the Raiders have to cancel its game versus Everglades on Sept. 18. The game no longer appears on the schedule for either school on the Broward Football Official’s Association website.
St. Thomas was ranked in the top five nationally by two polls released last week.
