Every week during the 2020 football season, SBLive Arkansas will rank the top high school football teams in every classification.
Here are the 7A rankings as compiled by SBLive reporters Connor Morrissette and Lance Smith.
SBLIVE 7A FOOTBALL POWER RANKINGS
Sept. 1, 2020
1. Bryant (1-0)
The Hornets smoked Benton, our 10th-ranked team in Arkansas, 48-7. More telling is that it was 42-0 after the first half.
The back-to-back reigning champs, who are currently on an 18-game winning streak, have been untouchable since October of 2018. They’ll be heavily favored this week against Marion.
2. North Little Rock (0-0)
The Charging Wildcats open up against a very worthy 7A adversary in Har-Ber this week. That makes for one of the premier games to watch in Week 2.
3. Bentonville (0-0)
Speaking of primetime preseason 7A showdowns, No. 3 Bentonville opens up their season against No. 4 Conway, who is off to a 1-0 start.
4. Conway (1-0)
The Wampus Cats are up to fourth in 7A and sixth in Arkansas in our statewide rankings after a statement win to start the season. They beat another 7A heavyweight, Fayetteville, 38-21 to kick things off.
5. Cabot (1-0)
The Panthers look like a contender after beating talented Searcy 35-18 in Week 1. They face what might be an even bigger test this week in Jonesboro.
Also in consideration:
Bentonville West, Har-Ber, Central, Fayetteville
