Carver-Columbus High hasn't been tested much through seven games and as many victories this season.
All that changes Saturday night as the No. 1 Tigers (7-0) welcome a talented No. 4-ranked LaGrange High (6-1) squad to Memorial Stadium.
As the outcomes of their games indicate, Carver-Columbus has been impressed on both sides of the ball. The Tigers have scored no less than 29 points in any contest all season (scoring as much as 51 in one ballgame) and has not allowed more than nine points by any opponent.
And it's an offense that is averaging 41.4 points per game and a defense that is allowing just 3.3 points per game that has helped deliver their lofty No. 1 ranking.
The Tigers are paced by a couple of future, well, Tigers.
Jarmon Fortson, a three-star wide receiver, and DeRon Furr, a three-star quarterback, will play for Auburn University next year.
But first they must get past the Grangers, who, until being upset by Shaw High last week 25-16, were the state's top-ranked 3A program.
Prior to the setback, the defensive-minded Grangers were giving up only one point per contest. Junior linebacker Qua Huzzie, a prospect who is certain to draw major college interest next season, helps lead that charge.
Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
