Bixby left no doubt as to who the No. 1 team is in the SBLive Oklahoma Top 25 high school football rankings.
The Spartans stay at the top spot after thoroughly dominating last week’s No. 3-ranked team, Choctaw, 70-7. It also extended Bixby’s remarkable current win streak to 42.
One of the Spartans’ victims during the streak, Jenks, which had its only loss at the hands of Bixby, solidified its spot at No. 2.
Here are SBLive Oklahoma’s Top 25 high school football teams entering Week 7 of action. Many teams will be playing Thursday this week as it will be fall break across the state.
1. Bixby (6-0)
It’s now 42-straight wins for the Spartans, who will return home on Thursday to take on another ranked foe in Sand Springs.
2. Jenks (5-1)
Fresh off a home win against Norman, the Trojans hit the road on Thursday to take on a streaking Edmond Santa Fe squad.
3. Tulsa Union (5-1)
Jenks’ lone loss was to Bixby, while Union’s lone defeat was to Jenks. Union, which rolled at home against Mustang last week, travels to take on Moore Friday in a matchup of two 5-1 teams.

The Rams, who won at Edmond North last week, return home for back-to-back games, starting Thursday against Southmoore.

The Wolves bounced back from an 0-2 start with four straight wins, but an imposing challenge awaits them Thursday, a home game against Jenks.
9. Sand Springs (5-1)
It won’t get any easier for the Sandites, who suffered their first loss last week to Booker T. Washington. Thursday, Sand Springs goes to Bixby; then the following week, the Sandites face Choctaw.

The Dutch are on the road again Thursday, as they travel to face 5-1 Berryhill with first place in District 3A-4 at stake.
11. Stillwater (4-2)
After starting a new district winning streak last week against Oklahoma City U.S. Grant, the Pioneers are back home on Thursday to face Lawton.

The Buffaloes took care of business at home last week against Durant, setting up their anticipated showdown Thursday night at Coweta, also coming in at 6-0.
13. Lincoln Christian (7-0)
It was all Bulldogs last week against Westville in a matchup of two 6-0 squads. Lincoln goes up against another undefeated team Thursday night, as the Bulldogs head to face 6-0 Seminole with the District 3A-3 lead on the line.
14. Coweta (6-0)
The town of Coweta was hit by a tornado Sunday night, but no injuries were reported and there was minimal damage to Coweta High School. At the moment, the Tigers’ home game with McAlester remains a go for Thursday night.
