We continue our Final Rankings in the 41 states we covered this football season. 

To say I’m overwhelmed with the work that comes along with this is an understatement.

We had Student Section of the Week for over 10 weeks and that helped us determine who had the best Student Section and which one wanted it more.

Just showing up in large crowds isn’t enough. It might fool other outlets that don’t cover Student Sections, but not us. We have to know how bad you want and marketing is key. 

You will see top-notch Student Sections miss out at the top spot, but we kept saying it over and over and over again, in order to be considered number one, you have to win the Student Section of the Week title. Otherwise, what is the point of having that contest?!

I know Student Sections complain, but remember it’s thousands of Student Sections and only me. Social media is your friend if used correctly.

A lot of great Student Sections in Arkansas. I feel there are two groups in this state. You have 10 solid Student Sections that can battle for the top spot followed by several solid Student Sections.

There are 4-5 Student Sections that are very strong though. It was definitely tough to pick and figure out who was number one.

So many great Student Sections in this state. Let’s take a look at our Top 40 and find who is the top dawg in Arkansas!


  1. Bryant Swarm

The name for this Student Section fits the bill. These kids can Swarm the Student Section and pack the house. Amazing themes and funny outfits. This is a Student Section that is filled with great school spirit and that’s why the Bryant Swarm is the Arkansas Football Student Section of the Year.

  1. Bentonville West

B-Dub is solid and I enjoy a good powder toss. The social media game is fantastic at Bentonville West. Amazing Student Section.

  1. Cabot Panther Pit 

Panther Pit kept getting better and better and that might be just off social media. Panther Pit was probably there the whole time before they blew up our Instagram.

  1. North Little Rock

North Little Rock was consistent with posting their Student Section posting on social media. It’s a crazy group every Friday at NLR!

  1. Fayetteville Dawg Crew

Dawg Crew definitely loves posters. This fantastic Student Section must have an account with Dunder Mifflin. The rowdiness matches it.
