With Week 3 in the rearview mirror, the real season lies ahead for most of the state's high school football teams.
And though there are usually a lot of bragging rights on the line with rivalry games during the nondistrict schedule, there isn't much meaning in records right now, whether 3-0 or 0-3 or somewhere in between.
Here's a look at some teams that are either very happy, very confident or very cautious heading into district play:
Riding the wave
These teams need to capitalize on the momentum built during a strong start:
Lawton MacArthur (3-0): Earning the city championship was big for the loaded Highlanders, and they're a team to watch in a somewhat wide-open battle in Class 5A.
Bethany (3-0): Arguably the toughest district in the state lies ahead, including a late-season game against defending champion Heritage Hall. But this team has its sights set on another deep playoff run.
Kingfisher (3-0): See Bethany.
Harrah (3-0): After a 5-5 season in Class 5A two years ago, and a playoff appearance in 4A last season, Greg Willis' squad is developing into a consistent program. With Glenpool's early season struggles, there could be an opening for the Panthers to make a run at a top-two spot in the district.
Minco (3-0): The Week 2 win over Wayne was big as Minco has climbed to No. 5 in the Class A rankings this week. QB Cade Baade and RB Jacob Smart are a dangerous pair.
Deer Creek (3-0): The Antlers have shown their wealth of talent in the strong start, but district games against the likes of Guthrie and Carl Albert lie ahead — beginning with a visit from Guthrie this week.
These teams are ready to forget all about nondistrict play:
Tulsa Washington (0-3): State championship to 0-3 isn't a desired path, but the Hornets got a good look at what the postseason will hold with games against Carl Albert and Tulsa East Central — losing 17-7 to the Cardinals on Friday.
Cashion (0-3): With a new quarterback this season, Cashion expected some growing pains against a tough nondistrict schedule.
Glenpool (0-3): The scary part for last year's 4A semifinalists is that they've yet to play a team above 3A. But the toughest part of their district schedule is at the end of the season.
Washington (1-2): Big losses to 3A teams Purcell and Bethany can be tough to put in perspective, but the 2A-3 schedule shouldn't offer tests with that type of challenge.
Owasso (1-2): Losses to Broken Arrow and Jenks, but the 6A-4 schedule will be more manageable, save Tulsa Union.
OK, you look good so far, but can you keep it going?:
Edmond Santa Fe (2-1): After winning one game last year, the Wolves started with two big wins before Thursday's loss to Midwest City. We should get a much clearer idea of how far the Wolves can go this year in the next three weeks, with games against Westmoore, Lawton and Mustang.
Bethel (3-0): They've won with offense, they've won with defense, but most importantly, the Wildcats are winning. The 3-0 start doesn't help their playoff pursuit unless they can turn that confidence into bigger victories down the line. Friday's 30-23 win over Madill was solid.
Comanche (3-0): With wins over Velma-Alma, Ringling and Marlow, it's not like Comanche opened with a string of cupcakes. Those three wins have to make the rest of 2A take notice, particularly district foes like Washington, Lindsay and Frederick.
