The pick: Edmond Santa Fe 42, Mustang 27

The Wolves have given up a lot of points this year — but they've been able to put up a lot of points. Mustang's defense isn't as good as Edmond North's, which held Santa Fe to 13 points. The Wolves have scored 42 or more points against each of their other three opponents, twice hitting 50.

Ardmore (2-2) at Class 5A No. 8 Del City (2-2)

Plot: A lot was expected of Del City, even coming off last year's 1-9 season. The question was how the Eagles would handle a brutal early season stretch that included games against Tulsa East Central, Lawton MacArthur, Midwest City and Norman North. Del City has won its last two games. Ardmore started district play with a win over Southeast.

Starring: Receiver Corey Lawrence was supposed to be Del City's top offensive player. He hasn't disappointed, with 308 yards and four touchdowns receiving. But the Eagles have a balanced offense with the emergence of running back Anthony Mason (546 yards, four touchdowns) and the improved running of quarterback Jon McBride (294 yards, six touchdowns).

The pick: Del City 28, Ardmore 20

Ardmore is due to play a solid game after edging Southeast last week at home and falling to Gainesville (Texas) the week before. But even Ardmore's best isn't going to stop Del City. While the Eagles' skill-position players have received plenty of attention, their blocking on both sides of the ball has played a huge part the last two weeks.
