As expected -- Maumelle, Central Arkansas Christian and North Little Rock -- are all headed to their respective high school football playoffs this Friday.
Maumelle (7-3) beat Beebe, 30-14, last Friday and finished as the No. 4 seed from the 5A-Central. The Hornets head to Valley View this Friday for the first round of the Class 5A playoffs.
Valley View, on the edge of Jonesboro, is 9-1 on the year, the 5A-East champs and the No. 1 seed from that conference.
The Blazers started the season with a 55-40 loss to Harding Academy but have since reeled off nine consecutive wins.
Most have been blowouts with the closest margin of victory being a 31-21 win against Southside Batesville.
As a team, Valley View has averaged 38.7 points per game and given up 18.4 points on defense.
The winner of the first-round game will be at home for the second round and will face the winner of Shiloh Christian and Hot Springs in the second round.
Also on Maumelle's side of the bracket is 5A-Central champ Pine Bluff as the Zebras will face Nettleton while Hot Springs Lakeside takes on Harrison.
Little Rock Parkview, the best team in 5A this season, is on the other side of the bracket and will host Alma in the first round this Thursday night at War Memorial Stadium.
This year's 5A state championship game is at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2 at War Memorial Stadium.
CAC (8-2): By virtue of its 53-0 steamrolling of Lamar last Friday, the Mustangs tied for the 4A-4 conference championship and also earned the No. 1 seed from the league.
This year, that means CAC will have a first-round bye and will face the winner of Nashville and Crossett in the second round on Friday, Nov. 17.
CAC averaged 48.1 points a game this season, second best in Class 4A and just behind Elkins and its 53.6 points a game.
Elkins looms as a potential quarterfinal, Black Friday football game on Friday, Nov. 24 but the Elks have to beat Clinton this Friday, then defeat the winner of Highland and Monticello.
Also on CAC's side of the bracket is Harding Academy, another undefeated team, but that wouldn't be until the semifinals on Friday, Dec. 1.
CAC also has homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.
The Class 4A state championship game is set for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 9.
North Little Rock went 3-7 on the year after last Friday's, 27-13, loss to Cabot.
The 3-4 record in the 7A-Central was good enough to be the No. 5 seed from the league and the 'Cats head to Rogers (7-3) as the Mounties are the No. 4 seed from the 7A-West.
The winner of that game travels to Bryant, the 7A-Central champ, on Friday Nov. 17. As the No. 1 seed from the league, the Hornets have a first-round bye.
Also on North Little Rock's side of the bracket is Bentonville, idle for this week, and Cabot and Springdale Har-Ber.
Undefeated Fayetteville leads the other side of the bracket and have homefield throughout with a 9-1 Conway looming in the semifinals.
