The state of small college football in Oklahoma is not so good, especially against out-of-state competition.

The only teams to defeat non-Oklahoma schools last Saturday were Panhandle State, 62-0 over Cole College, a second-year program in Boulder, Colo., and Northeastern A&M, a 42-31 winner over Blinn of Brenham, Texas. Otherwise, Bacone, Central Oklahoma, Langston, Northeastern State, Northwestern State, Southern Nazarene and Southeastern State all lost to out-of-state programs.

1. Southwestern State (1-1): Give it up to the Bulldogs. Defeated previous Power Poll No. 1 East Central.

2. Northeastern State (0-3): RiverHawks better than record indicates.

3. East Central (1-1): Issues on offense.

4. Southeastern State (1-1): Great American Conference favorite Henderson State (Ark.) is next.

5. Central Oklahoma (0-3): Patience, Broncho fans.

6. Langston (1-2): Lion's share of woes last week against defending NAIA champion St. Xavier (Ill.)

7. Panhandle State (2-1): Aggies have won two straight under new coach Russell Gaskamp.

8. Southern Nazarene (0-3): Already matched last season's loss total.

9. Bacone (1-3): Warriors had no business playing Central Arkansas, a 70-3 winner.
