VIRGINIA BEACH – The IMG Academy football program is ranked number two in the nation by a number of publications, and after narrowly defeating Bishop Sullivan Catholic School 16-6 on Saturday night, has won 29 straight games. In the week leading up to Saturday’s matchup, IMG players said they’d never heard of Bishop Sullivan before they started studying game film.

Well, they certainly know who the crusaders are now, and so too do thousands around the country.

Bleacher Report broadcast the game on live webstream, and thousands around the nation watched head coach Chris Scott’s team nearly pull off  the upset of the season.
