Rex’s Rankings: After seven weeks

It might have been the game of the year thus far in Arkansas high school football.

Fuller Chandler threw a six-yard touchdown pass to Trey Smith with just six seconds remaining in the game, and Springdale Har-Ber defeated Fayetteville by a final score of 47-43 in Springdale. We had Fayetteville ranked No. 2 in the state and Har-Ber No. 3 coming into the game.

Just two weeks ago, Har-Ber was No. 9. But that was before back-to-back victories over Bentonville (31-21) and Fayetteville.

Meanwhile, No. 1 Pine Bluff recorded its fourth consecutive shutout with a 35-0 victory over Little Rock Hall. The Zebras have outscored their past four opponents 157-0.
