When: 7 p.m., Friday
Where: Carl Albert High School, Midwest City
Records: Deer Creek 2-1; Carl Albert 2-1
Last week: Edmond Memorial 40, Deer Creek 10; Carl Albert 28, Duncan 6
Players to watch: Deer Creek — Caden Sander, QB/S. The senior has accounted for six touchdowns on offense and will need a big game for the Antlers.
Carl Albert — Steven Thompson, QB/DB. Thompson hasn’t put up crazy numbers offensively yet like last season, but his passing ability seems to be improving.
Storylines: Deer Creek — How do the Antlers respond after last week’s drubbing? Carl Albert is bigger up front, which will present its own challenges besides recovering from a stinging loss.
Carl Albert — The Titans’ defense bent but didn’t break last week against Duncan. They need to repeat that against a team that can score in bunches.
The pick: Carl Albert 28, Deer Creek 24
