Here’s how the SBLive Oklahoma Top 25 high school football teams fared this week …
1. Bixby (9-0) beat Ponca City 66-13
It’s 45 straight wins for the Spartans, but they now face a very difficult test next week on the road at Tulsa Booker T. Washington.
2. Jenks (8-1) beat Edmond Memorial 44-0
Jaiden Carroll scored the first four touchdowns for the Trojans, three rushing and the last one on a pick-six, as Jenks wrapped up the 6AI-1 district title and top playoff seed.

Quarterback Steele Wasel was 12-of-17 passing for 294 yards and threw seven touchdown passes in the Yellowjackets’ win.
5. Tulsa Booker T. Washington (8-1) beat Muskogee 54-21
Can the Hornets be the one that slows down the Bixby juggernaut next week? BTW quarterback Lathan Boone will come in on a roll, having passed for 331 yards and seven touchdowns in Friday’s win.
6. Tuttle (9-0) beat Oklahoma City John Marshall 49-0
The Tigers keep on rolling in 4A, and can wrap up a perfect regular season with a win at home next week against Blanchard.
7. Holland Hall (8-1) lost to Verdigris 12-7
The Dutch saw their 20-game win streak snapped, as the Cardinals made things interesting in 3A-4, with both teams now with identical 5-1 records and Verdigris owning the tiebreaker.
8. McAlester (9-0) beat Shawnee 54-20
The Buffaloes kept rolling as junior tailback Erik McCarty rushed for 111 yards on 16 carries and four TDs, caught three passes for 81 yards and a TD and even blocked a punt on special teams.
9. Lincoln Christian (9-0) was idle
The Bulldogs wrap up the regular season with a home game next Friday against Stigler.
10. Owasso (7-2) beat Moore 49-28
Owasso bounced back from last week’s home loss to Mustang as quarterback Mason Willingham completed 12-of-13 passes for 255 yards along with three TDs.
11. Del City (8-1) beat Oklahoma City U.S. Grant 59-7
The Eagles capped a strong season by clinching the top playoff seed from 6AII-1 with a convincing win on Thursday.
12. Stillwater (7-2) beat Midwest City 50-0
Stillwater’s hopes of getting the top playoff seed from 6AII-1 were extinguished with Del City’s win, but the Pioneers locked up the No. 2 seed and will host a first-round home playoff.
13. Broken Arrow (6-3) beat Norman 28-13
Maurion Horn rushed for 176 yards on 30 carries and had three touchdowns for the surging Tigers, who clinched a first-round home playoff by virtue of getting the No. 2 seed from 6AI-1.
14. Heritage Hall (9-0) beat Kingfisher 50-7
Friday’s home win gave the Chargers command in District 3A-1.
15. Collinsville (9-0) beat Pryor 63-8
It was all Cardinals in this 5A-4 showdown, as quarterback Andrew Carney had three rushing TDs and a passing TD, while tailback Brayden Gilkey also had three TD runs.
16. Lawton Mac (9-0) beat Oklahoma City Capitol Hill 73-6
The Highlanders are now in sole possession of the 5A-1 lead thanks to Ardmore’s loss to Noble. But Lawton Mac has to assure itself of the outright district title and No. 1 seed by beating Ardmore next week.
17. Coweta (7-1) beat Tulsa Bishop Kelley 28-14
With the win, the Tigers earned the No. 2 playoff seed out of 5A-3 behind McAlester, which handed Coweta its only defeat.

The Wolves likely solidified the No. 3 playoff seed from 6AI-1 with Friday’s win against an improving Enid squad.
19. Washington (9-0) beat Crooked Oak 63-0
The Warriors, the 2A-3 leaders, go for an undefeated regular season next week with a game at Christian Heritage.
20. Edmond Deer Creek (7-2) beat Lawton 67-20
With the win Friday, the Antlers will receive the No. 3 playoff seed out of 6AII-1.
21. Ardmore (8-1) lost to Noble 36-35 in OT
A much-anticipated matchup next week with Lawton MacArthur took a slight hit with the Tigers falling on their home field on Friday.
22. Mustang (6-3) beat Putnam City 62-28
No letdown for the Broncos after their signature win at Owasso the week before, as Mustang closes in on the No. 2 playoff seed from 6AI-2.
23. Sand Springs (6-3) beat Bartlesville 41-20
The Sandites broke a three-game losing streak and gained a much-needed confidence boost going into their regular season finale next week.
24. Grove (8-1) lost to Wagoner 22-20
In a bizarre finish, the Ridgerunners took an intentional safety on the game’s final play, but still holds the No. 1 playoff seed from 4A-4 by virtue of points provided they beat Miami next week and Bristow beats Oologah.
25. Beggs (8-1) beat Haskell 58-13
Now, the Demons can shift their focus on to Victory Christian, with the two teams meeting next week in Tulsa for the 2A-7 title.
