High school football: The Oklahoman’s top 10 games of Week 4

Buckle up. These games count more.

District play is here across the state. It’s essentially a clean slate for each team this week, as the path to the playoffs is based on how well a team does in district play.

East powers collide this week with other great matchups abound.

Here are The Oklahoman’s top 10 games of Week 4:

1. Class 6A-I No. 3 Tulsa Union (2-1) at No. 1 Owasso (3-0): Both teams are coming off a bye week, but Owasso has asserted itself as the state’s top squad after a big win against defending state champ Broken Arrow two weeks ago.

Tulsa Union will rely on running back/defensive back AJ Green and wide receiver Kyler Pearson to have big games and outduel defensive back Duece Mayberry Jr. and running back Isaiah Jacobs from Owasso.

2. Class 6A-I No. 2 Broken Arrow (2-1) at No. 4 Jenks (1-2): Jenks will look to find its footing after consecutive losses while Broken Arrow will have to bounce back from its first loss since 2017.

3. Class A No. 4 Christian Heritage (4-0) at No. 1 Cashion (3-0): Last season’s Class A state runner-up Christian Heritage faces a stiff test when it goes to Cashion, where the Wildcats are rolling early.

4. Class 6A-II No. 4 Sapulpa (3-0) at No. 1 Bixby (3-0): Sapulpa quarterback Eli Williams will have to outshine Bixby’s Brennan Presley and the high-flying Spartan offense, which seems unstoppable.

5. Class 2A No. 1 Metro Christian (3-0) at No. 4 Adair (3-0): In what could be a district championship game in Week 4, Asher Link will look to outduel Adair’s tough offense, which scored 76 points in its last game.

6. Class 6A-II No. 3 Del City (2-1) at No. 8 Choctaw (2-1): In what could be a big game come playoff seeding time, Del City’s stifling defense looks to continue clamping opponents while Choctaw continues its push to get back into the playoffs.

7. Class 3A No. 2 Lincoln Christian (3-0) at No. 8 Stigler (3-0): In what is one of Class 3A’s most difficult districts, Lincoln Christian looks to continue playing hot while Stigler will look to pull of an upset.

8. Class 5A No. 8 Claremore (1-2) at No. 6 Collinsville (2-1): Both teams battled tough nondistrict schedules, but a win to begin district play could be pivotal come playoff seeding time.

9. Class 4A No. 2 Bethany (3-0) at Blanchard (1-2): Bethany star Sam Brandt looks to continue his tear but faces a Blanchard team coming off a rough nondistrict stretch that’s looking to prove something, with running back Bryce Madron leading the way.

10. Class 6A-II No. 10 Midwest City (0-3) at No. 7 Lawton (3-0): The district rivals have started their seasons in completely different directions, but the winner of this contest gets a leg up come playoff time.
