Rex’s Rankings: The playoffs continue

There weren’t many changes in the rankings following the first week of the high school football playoffs.

In fact, six of our Top 10 teams had first-round byes.

The four teams that did play won easily: No. 6 Pulaski Academy beat Alma 57-21; No. 7 Fayetteville beat Little Rock Catholic 45-17; No. 9 Conway beat Rogers 49-7; and No. 10 Joe T. Robinson beat Pottsville 47-12.

Things get more interesting this week in the second round. There are some matchups that we’re used to seeing in the finals — Pulaski Academy against Little Rock McClellan in Class 5A, Arkadelphia against Warren in Class 4A, etc.
