The bottom half of the Class 5A top 10 saw some movement this week after big wins by Shawnee and Pryor.

Shawnee ripped off a 42-10 win over previously No. 6 Tulsa Kelley, bumping the Wolves up to No. 7. And Pryor put away previously No. 9 Claremore, then overtook the Zebras’ place in the poll. Pryor jumped in at No. 10, entering the rankings for the first time this season, quite an improvement from its spot at No. 20 in the preseason poll.

At 5-2 on the year, Pryor has already surpassed last year’s four-win total.

No movement in the top half of the poll, which sets up a top-five matchup this week between Guthrie and Deer Creek.

Here’s The Oklahoman’s updated 5A poll:

Rank, Team, Record (Prev.)
1. Guthrie, 7-0 (1)
2. McAlester, 6-1 (2)
3. Carl Albert, 5-2 (3)
4. Lawton MacArthur, 5-2 (4)
5. Deer Creek, 5-2 (5)
6. Ardmore, 6-1 (7)
7. Shawnee, 5-2 (10)
8. Tulsa Kelley, 5-2 (6)
9. Del City, 4-3 (8)
10. Pryor, 5-2 (NR)
Dropped out: Claremore, 5-2 (9)
