SBLive Oklahoma Top 25 high school football rankings: Top 7 teams remain intact after each won in Week 7

By Buck Ringgold

There was really not a drastic shakeup in the latest SBLive Oklahoma Top 25 high school football rankings.

Each of the top seven teams from last week won in Week 7. And the two highest-ranked teams that lost last week — No. 8 Edmond Santa Fe and No. 9 Sand Springs — lost to No. 2 Jenks and No. 1 Bixby, respectively.

Here are SBLive Oklahoma’s Top 25 high school football teams entering Week 8.

1. Bixby (7-0)

After rolling past Sand Springs at home last week, the Spartans are home again on Friday against Muskogee, as Bixby goes for consecutive win No. 44.

2. Jenks (6-1)

The Trojans won at Edmond Santa Fe last week to seize command in 6AI-1 and will make another trip to central Oklahoma this week as they face Yukon.

3. Tulsa Union (6-1)

An interesting test awaits Union on Friday, with a trip to face Norman North, which stands at 5-2 and has won two straight games.

4. Owasso (6-1)

The Rams are at home on Friday to take on Mustang in a matchup between two teams tied for second place in 6AI-2.

5. Choctaw (5-2)

Friday’s game between the Yellowjackets and Sand Springs will be beneficial for the winner to possibly finish second behind Bixby in 6AII-2.

6. Tulsa Booker T. Washington (6-1)

The Hornets host Ponca City on Friday, but they’re determined not to look ahead to their big showdown against Bixby in the regular-season finale.

7. Tuttle (7-0)

Tuttle isn’t in sole possession of the 4A-2 lead, as the Tigers currently share it with Blanchard. The Tigers could get sole possession of first with a win at Ada, along with a Blanchard loss to Cushing.

8. Holland Hall (7-0)

Holland Hall closes in on a perfect regular season, and can be another step closer toward that achievement with a win at home Friday against Jay.

9. McAlester (7-0)

The Buffaloes got a huge win last week at Coweta in a matchup of unbeatens, but they remain in a tie for first place in 5A-3 with Shawnee, with those two teams playing next week. This week, McAlester returns home to take on Tulsa Edison.

10. Lincoln Christian (8-0)

Lincoln Christian won back-to-back road games against a pair of teams that were sporting 6-0 records. This Friday, the Bulldogs return home to face Checotah, which finally picked up its first win last week.

11. Stillwater (5-2)

Trying to keep pace with Del City for the 6AII-1 lead, the Pioneers hit the road on Friday to take on Northwest Classen.

12. Edmond Santa Fe (4-3)

Friday night, the Wolves head to Broken Arrow in a game that may very well decide the 6AI-1 runner-up behind Jenks.

13. Sand Springs (5-2)

Coming off consecutive losses to Booker T. Washington and Bixby, the Sandites’ difficult gauntlet continues on Friday as Choctaw pays a visit to Sand Springs.

14. Broken Arrow (4-3)

An up-and-down season for the Tigers could become a bit smoother with a win at home this week against Edmond Santa Fe.

15. Edmond Deer Creek (6-1)

Friday night, the Antlers have an opportunity to take a huge step toward securing the top playoff seed from 6AII-1 when they entertain the district’s leader, Del City.

16. Heritage Hall (7-0)

The undefeated Chargers, in sole possession of the 3A-1 lead, travel to face Anadarko, one of three teams tied for second in the district a game back of Heritage Hall.

17. Collinsville (7-0)

Collinsville, tied for first place in 5A-4 with Pryor, takes its perfect record into Friday’s home game against Tulsa Memorial, which is still seeking its first win.

18. Del City (6-1)

The Eagles’ charmed season can be even sweeter with a win Friday at Deer Creek, which would put Del City in control of the 6AII-1 race.

19. Lawton MacArthur (7-0)

Lawton Mac, which outscored Pryor 20-0 in the third quarter en route to a key road win last week, returns home to take on Altus as the Highlanders remain tied with undefeated Ardmore atop 5A-1.

20. Coweta (6-1)

The Tigers’ undefeated season came to an abrupt halt last week against McAlester, but Coweta can rebound nicely this Friday when the they play at home against Shawnee, which shares the 5A-3 lead with McAlester.

21. Washington (7-0)

2A-3 leader Washington puts its undefeated record on the line this week at home against Holdenville, which comes in still searching for its first win.

22. Ardmore (7-0)

The Tigers are on a collison course with Lawton MacArthur for the 5A-1 title, but before taking on the Highlanders, Ardmore has to go on the road Friday at El Reno, which is battling for a postseason berth.

23. Grove (7-0)

This Friday, the Ridgerunners are at home to take on Cleveland as they seek to not look ahead to next week’s showdown with Wagoner which will likely decide the 4A-3 title.

24. Beggs (6-1)

The Demons, who scored 82 points for the second time this season in a win last week against Morris, travel this Friday to face Kiefer in a game between identical 6-1 squads.

25. Cashion (6-1)

Cashion, which was off last week, will play a non-district game Friday against Ulysses, Kan., which will take place in Alva.
