Rex’s Rankings: After nine weeks

There are two weeks remaining in the regular season in high school football. Then we’ll try to have playoffs in this year of the virus.

What we call the Big Three in Class 7A all won easily last week — No. 1 Bryant beat Cabot, 42-14. No. 2 North Little Rock beat Fort Smith Northside, 45-7. No. 3 Bentonville beat Rogers, 74-21.

We’ll learn a lot more this Friday when Bryant and North Little Rock square off.

In the Class 6A showdown last Friday, Greenwood downed Benton by a final score of 42-28.

Pulaski Academy posted an easier-than-expected 60-28 victory over Little Rock Christian in the Class 5A showdown.
