Kersey's Week 9 Top 10 game picks

I watched Guthrie scrimmage McGuinness prior to the start of this season, and ever since then I’ve said that I think Guthrie is the best team in Class 5A. Besides the obvious greatness on the team (Kye Staley), they are enormous in size.

The one thing that makes me slightly question that now is the schedule the two teams played. Guthrie has blown away every opponents on its schedule so far this year, but hasn’t really played anyone that was that tough. And the 69-0 drubbing of Noble (who has already clinched a playoff spot and could be third in the district) doesn’t really mean anything because of the huge dropoff after Carl Albert and Guthrie in District 5A-2.

Carl Albert, on the other hand, played a tough non-district schedule and won convincingly in each game (Tulsa Washington, Duncan and Ada).

But, I’m sticking with my pick and taking the Bluejays.  

Guthrie 31, Carl Albert 24

Guthrie over Carl Albert
Wagoner over Grove
Tuttle over Clinton
Ringling over Velma-Alma
Lawton MacArthur over Western Heights
Pawnee over Woodland
Broken Bow over Stilwell
Plainview over Marlow
Norman North over Lawton
Sequoyah-Tahlequah over Wyandotte
