An upset and a blowout had the biggest impact on the Class 3A top 10 this week.

Bethany knocked off Cushing 20-19, dropping the Tigers from No. 5 to No. 10. And Metro Christian thumped Berryhill 54-20, which knocked Berryhill out of the poll, and gave Metro a boost up to No. 4 ahead of fellow unbeaten Victory Christian. Metro’s move up was based more on their overall body of work, not just a reaction to the one big win over Berryhill.

Victory has been equally dominant this season, but their schedule hasn’t been quite as challenging as Metro’s. And prior to allowing Berryhill to score 20, Metro had gone eight weeks giving up a total of just 10 points.

Checotah, the only one-loss team remaining in 3A, jumped into the poll at No. 9 this week. It’s interesting that there are seven unbeaten teams in the class, but only one team with one loss.

Here’s The Oklahoman’s Class 3A top 10:

Rank, Team, Record (Prev.)
1. Blanchard, 9-0 (1)
2. Kingfisher, 10-0 (2)
3. Seminole, 10-0 (3)
4. Metro Christian, 10-0 (6)
5. Victory Christian, 10-0 (4)
6. Plainview, 10-0 (7)
7. Locust Grove, 10-0 (8)
8. Hilldale, 8-2 (9)
9. Checotah, 9-1 (NR)
10. Cushing, 8-2 (5)
Dropped out: Berryhill, 8-2 (10)
