Rex’s Rankings: After 10 weeks

We’ve reached the final week of the regular season.

This is that strange week when there are a lot of rivalry games with about half of the games played on Thursday night and about half of the games played on Friday night.

The big news last week might have been the fact that Bryant didn’t invoke the mercy rule. The No. 1 Hornets had to battle for more than three quarters to pull out a 35-21 victory over North Little Rock.

The upset of the week was Van Buren over Bentonville West. It’s the Battle of Bentonville this week as that city’s two high schools play each other. Bentonville remains just behind Bryant in the rankings following its 52-0 victory over Springdale.
