Yes, Jenks is the overwhelming 6A favorite, and yes, it looks like another east-dominated bracket. But if anyone has a chance to spoil the show, it's Lawton with its big lines and highlight-reel running back Michael Warren.
Best first-round matchup: Edmond Santa Fe at Midwest City
Only slightly better than the Edlam first-rounder between North and Memorial. But the matchup of Midwest City's defense that has allowed only 12.6 points per game against the Santa Fe offense that is looking for its rhythm without Justice Hansen is deep with storylines.
Potential second-round showdown: Norman North-Broken Arrow
While both Norman North and Broken Arrow have tough first-round tests, a quarterfinal rematch of those two teams in the second straight postseason would come with some fireworks.
Road warrior: Westmoore
Losses to Jenks and Broken Arrow landed Westmoore on the road at Sand Springs in the first round. Considering how well Westmoore has played, even in defeat, this season, the Jags should still be the favorite in their first-round matchup.
The favorite: Guthrie
The Bluejays have been dominant, outscoring their opponents 45-8 all season. They also have a favorable side of the bracket leading to Stillwater.
Toughest road: Carl Albert
Defending champion opens with No. 8 Del City, then could travel to No. 2 McAlester in a blockbuster second-round game. The semifinals could be against No. 4 Lawton MacArthur or No. 10 Pryor, too, raising concerns about a possible repeat.
Dark horse: Lawton MacArthur
Lawton MacArthur has been flying under the radar, averaging 39 points per game while showing improvement on defense the past three games. The Highlanders' biggest challenge en route to Stillwater could be in the semifinals.
Player to watch: Kai Callins, Guthrie
Often the best player on the field, Callins has been electric this season. He's rushed for 1,257 yards and 24 touchdowns, while also catching one and throwing one.
The favorite: Anadarko
Running back R.J. Sink and the Warriors have managed to come out of arguably the class' toughest district with an unbeaten record, looking for their third straight trip to the finals.
Dark horse: Woodward
Friday night's close loss at Clinton sends the Boomers on the road to Ada to start the playoffs, but with one of 4A's best defenses, they have the capability to pile up some wins.
Player to watch: Douglass senior Deondre Clark
One of the state's top recruits as a defensive end, the 6-foot-3, 240-pound Clark is committed to LSU. But his battering runs from the tailback position make him even more fun to watch.
Potential second-round showdown: Ada/Woodward vs. Wagoner
No matter who advances between Ada and Woodward, they'll be in line for a huge second-round matchup against Wagoner and running back Lawrence Evitt.
The favorite: Blanchard
The defending champions have been No. 1 all season, but a repeat won't be easy with six other unbeaten teams in the 3A postseason.
Player to watch: Blanchard running back Braden Stringer
