Trent was the only one to accurately predict Morrison’s upset over Kiefer last week, which helped him wrap up the regular season title. And he extended his lead on the field heading into the playoffs. Jacob jumped into second place with a strong Week 10 showing as well.

Here’s how the staff sees the top 10 games of the week shaking out as we enter the first round of the playoffs:

Scott
Edmond Memorial 20, Edmond North 17
Broken Arrow 31, Tulsa Washington 21
Midwest City 16, Edmond Santa Fe 13
Westmoore 34, Sand Springs 17
Pryor 28, Skiatook 27
Ardmore 24, McGuinness 20
Woodward 20, Ada 18
Tuttle 27, Bethany 24
Cushing 21, Jones 14
Christian Heritage 28, Alva 24
Lock of the Week: Westmoore over Sand Springs. The Jags dropped to a No. 3 seed simply because of losses to Jenks and Broken Arrow. They’re one of the five best teams in the state and will prove it Friday night.

Edmond Memorial 24, Edmond North 21
Broken Arrow 21, Tulsa Washington 17
Midwest City 15, Edmond Santa Fe 13
Westmoore 28, Sand Springs 21
Pryor 35, Skiatook 28
Ardmore 21, McGuinness 20
Ada 21, Woodward 17
Tuttle 28, Bethany 24
Cushing 20, Jones 14
Christian Heritage 35, Alva 28
Lock of the Week: Broken Arrow over Tulsa Washington. The Tigers’ offense really got going late last week against Westmoore, scoring 20 unanswered points. The Hornets don’t have enough firepower to overcome all of the talented weapons Broken Arrow throws out there.

Edmond Memorial 24, Edmond North 21
Broken Arrow 35, Tulsa Washington 28
Midwest City 14, Edmond Santa Fe 13
Westmoore 42, Sand Springs 35

McGuinness 21, Ardmore 20
Woodward 30, Ada 28
Bethany 26, Tuttle 24
Jones 34, Cushing 30
Christian Heritage 38, Alva 31
Lock of the Week: Westmoore over Sand Springs. Both teams are capable of lighting up the scoreboard, but Westmoore has played a tougher schedule and appears to have the better defense.
