When: 7:30 p.m., Friday

Where: Lincoln Christian, 1003 North 129th East Avenue, Tulsa

Records: Blanchard 11-0 (6-0 District 3A-1, first); Lincoln Christian 8-4 (4-3 District 3A-7, third)

Last week: Blanchard 41, Newcastle 0; Lincoln Christian 27, Victory Christian 26, OT

Players to watch: Blanchard — Braden Stringer, RB, Stringer was very impressive last week despite icy conditions, scoring five touchdowns and rushing for 231 yards. He now has 2,544 yards and 35 touchdowns this season.

Lincoln Christian — Micah Wilson, QB. Wilson has thrown for 2,529 yards and 28 touchdowns this season, including the game-winning TD pass in overtime last week. But he has also been prone to the interception, throwing 14.

Storylines: Blanchard — The Lions’ defense last week was stellar, forcing five turnovers and delivering a shutout. How do they follow that up against a pass-heavy team?

Lincoln Christian — The Bulldogs need to find a way to consistently stop Stringer and move the ball. Blanchard is starting to really find its groove, which is scary for many 3A teams.

The pick: Blanchard 42, Lincoln Christian 27
