But survive it did as Cabot held off Fort Smith Southside, 27-23, with Southside a yard away from winning the game as the clock ran out.

We’ve reached the halfway point of the regular season.

Here’s what we know:

Five teams — Cabot, Bentonville, Fayetteville, North Little Rock and Springdale Har-Ber — have legitimate shots of winning the Class 7A state title.

Greenwood is the clear favorite to win the Class 6A title, but don’t rule out Jonesboro or Pine Bluff just yet.

Meanwhile, Pulaski Academy is the favorite to win the Class 5A title, but Wynne and Sylvan Hills will have something to say about it before all is said and done.

The Class 4A champion likely will wear orange — Warren or Nashville.

Glen Rose is the class of Class 3A, but it’s too early to rule out Prescott, Charleston or Bald Knob.

England is the favorite in Class 2A, but Danville or Mount Ida might challenge for the title before all is said and done.

Let’s get to the Arkansas high school football rankings after five weeks of the regular season:


1. Cabot

2. Greenwood

3. Bentonville
