Rex’s Rankings: After four weeks

The team we had atop the rankings from the preseason through Week 3 — Fayetteville — lost last Friday.

It really wasn’t much of a surprise since Fayetteville always seems to lose to Bentonville during the regular season (the playoffs can be a different matter).

So Bentonville makes a big jump from No. 8 to No. 3 while the Purple Dogs fall from No. 1 to No. 4.

Time will tell. There’s a lot of football left.

For now, we’ll put Cabot in the No. 1 spot. The Panthers are 4-0 following a 35-10 victory over Little Rock Catholic.

It seems strange not to have a northwest Arkansas school atop the rankings, doesn’t it?
