Rex’s Rankings: After six weeks

Hello, old friend.

Fayetteville was our No. 1 team overall in the preseason and during the first three weeks of the regular season with victories of 26-21 over Blue Springs from Missouri, 43-10 over Bryant and 35-25 over Bishop Dunne from Texas.

Then came the 24-21 loss to Bentonville in Week 3. We moved the Purple Dogs out of the top spot and elevated undefeated Cabot. The Panthers stayed there for a couple of weeks with wins of 35-10 over Little Rock Catholic in Week 4 and 27-23 over Fort Smith Southside in Week 5.

Last Friday, 5-0 Cabot took on 0-5 Conway.

Conway won.


37-14 big.

Cabot fell all the way to No. 9 after that thrashing, and Fayetteville moved back to No. 1 with its 54-17 victory over Rogers.
