The pick: Edmond Santa Fe 28, Edmond North 14

The Wolves enter this game a bit more tested, and this is where it pays off. Edmond Santa Fe wins the rivalry game for the second consecutive season, after Edmond North won two straight in 2008-09.

Class 3A No. 1 Kingfisher (2-0) at Class 2A No. 4 Hennessey (1-1)

Plot: This might've been the top game of the week outside of Union-Broken Arrow had Hennessey not lost last week to now-Class 3A Jones, 35-0. But it's still plenty worthy of being one of the top games around. Kingfisher has been absolutely dominant to this point, outscoring Guymon and Chandler by a combined 101-0.

Starring: Landon Nault has been a force so far for Kingfisher, rushing for 254 yards and two touchdowns — plus a punt return for a score — in the win over Guymon and running for a score and catching a touchdown pass last week. Hennessey's Levi Hill has been a big part of the team's back-to-back title teams as running back and is once again a leader there. Hill has been banged up lately, but if he can play, this will be much tighter.

The pick: Kingfisher 34, Hennessey 14

The Yellow Jackets handed Hennessey one of its two losses last season, the week after Hennessey also lost to Jones. This one again figures to be entertaining, but again, it's the Class 3A team coming out on top.
