SBLive 2A Arkansas Power Rankings: No. 3 Gurdon and No. 5 Poyen primed for duel

Every week during the 2020 football season, SBLive Arkansas will rank the top high school football teams in every classification.

Here are the 2A rankings as compiled by SBLive reporters Connor Morrissette and Lance Smith.

1. Fordyce (7-0)

The Redbugs demolished Strong last week, 55-0. This week they face struggling Parkers Chapel. Right now, the reigning champion looks as unbeatable as ever, but 2A is filled with contenders who are gearing up for postseason runs.

2. Junction City (3-2)

After losing 21-6 against Fordyce two weeks ago, the Dragons are back above .500 with a resounding victory over Parkers Chapel. This week they face a solid Hampton squad.

3. Gurdon (5-1)

Gurdon left no doubt in a 49-20 victory over Magnet Cove last week. This week’s face-off against No. 5 Poyen is the game to watch in 2A.

4. Des Arc (7-0)

The Eagles have an open week for the second week in a row. The odds say they’ll beat England decisively next week.

5. Poyen (7-0)

For the first time this season, Poyen will not be the clear favorite entering a game. Almost every game has been a blowout win for the Indians, with the exception being a 21-12 victory over Dierks, which is arguably the best team they’ve played. Their momentum and unbeaten streak is on the line against No. 3 Gurdon, but they’ll enter the playoffs in solid shape no matter what.

HONORABLE MENTION

Cross County, Clarendon, Dierks, Bigelow
