Here are The Oklahoman high school sports writers’ predictions of the top 10 games for Week 1 of the football season:

Scott Wright
Edmond Santa Fe 34, Midwest City 28
Davis 42, Ringling 38
Broken Arrow 42, Owasso 35
Southmoore 30, Carl Albert 28
Westmoore 28, Moore 21
Norman North 31, Norman 28
Clinton 21, Lawton MacArthur 16
Tulsa East Central 35, Del City 33
Metro Christian 27, Oklahoma Christian 24
Tulsa Washington 21, Douglass 20
Lock of the Week: Broken Arrow over Owasso. Owasso’s going to be a good team, but replacing QB Jaylen Lowe will be more difficult than some realize — especially in Week 1. Look for BA’s Devon Thomas to have a big night.

Jacob Unruh
Edmond Santa Fe 24, Midwest City 17
Davis 28, Ringling 26
Broken Arrow 28, Owasso 14
Southmoore 21, Carl Albert 17
Westmoore 35, Moore 21
Norman North 35, Norman 23
Lawton MacArthur 24, Clinton 20
Del City 28, Tulsa East Central 27
OCS 35, Metro Christian 21
Tulsa Washington 21, Douglass 14
Lock of the Week: Southmoore over Carl Albert. The SaberCats will be feeding off all kinds of emotion Thursday night. They were also impressive, especially defensively in the preseason, and will give the Titans fits.

Trent Shadid
Edmond Santa Fe 35, Midwest City 20
Davis 27, Ringling 22
Broken Arrow 35, Owasso 31
Southmoore 28, Carl Albert 21
Westmoore 42, Moore 13
Norman North 34, Norman 21
Clinton 14, Lawton MacArthur 13
Del City 21, Tulsa East Central 14
Metro Christian 28, Oklahoma Christian 27
Tulsa Washington 26, Douglass 12
Lock of the Week: Westmoore over Moore. Running back Kieron Hardrick and speedy receiver Lexus Lee will lead the Jaguars offense to a big night, taking all the pressure off quarterback Bryson Lee in his debut.
