One week is in the books and the Canisius football team is receiving plenty of love in the regional rankings.
In addition to being ranked 25th by MaxPreps' computers, the Crusaders are ranked fourth in the USA Today Northeast region poll.
The Buffalo News poll has Canisius, the defending state Catholic champions who have won 17 straight games, ranked first in Western New York among Large Schools. The state rankings are not out yet.
Blue and gold faithful can feel free to argue which regional ranking is more accurate - the No. 25 by MaxPrep or No. 4 by USA Today. Remember, the only rankings that matter are at the end of the season. Canisius ended last year ranked 30th in the national USA Today poll.
