The Oklahoman's 8-man rankings: Dominant teams stay dominant

Class C was the only class in the state to have no movement in the top 10. Two teams in the class lost, but both to ranked Class B opponents, which didn’t justify a drop in position for either of them.

In Class B, Woodland fell out of the top 10 after a 45-0 loss to Maysville, a Class A team that went winless last year, but stepped down to play one 8-man game this season. Dewar dropped one spot after losing to No. 4 Rejoice Christian. And Coyle, with its 40-0 win over Covington-Douglas, joins the poll at No. 10.

Here are The Oklahoman’s Class B and C rankings:
