The finish line is in sight.

After a tumultuous season with plenty of COVID interruptions, big performances and more, the final week of the regular season is here. Plenty of district titles are up for grabs as teams jockey for one final push before the playoffs begin.

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

1. Class 3A No. 3 Tulsa Lincoln Christian (8-0, 5-0) at No. 4 Stigler (9-0, 5-0): In a top-loaded Class 3A, Tulsa Lincoln Christian and Stigler will feature two dynamic offenses and strong defenses battling for a district title. Stigler will try to take down the defending champ while Lincoln Christian will look to build momentum before another playoff run.

2. Class 4A No. 3 Tuttle (9-0, 5-0) at No. 6 Blanchard (6-2, 4-0): Since the start of the 2018 season, Tuttle has lost one time. Blanchard is going to try and add another but will have to play strong offensively to win the district title.

3. Class 6A-II No. 6 Tulsa Washington (6-2, 4-1) at No. 1 Bixby (7-0, 4-0): Tulsa Washington was the last team in Class 6A-II to defeat Bixby. In a game that will be featured on ESPNU, the Hornets will look to do it again and end the Spartans’ 32-game win streak.

4. Class 4A No. 4 Poteau (7-2, 6-0) at No. 9 Broken Bow (5-2, 5-1): Both teams have hit their stride after early-season losses. Broken Bow will look to play spoiler and pull another upset against the defending Class 4A state champions.

5. Class 2A No. 7 Adair (8-1, 6-0) at Sequoyah Claremore (7-1, 5-0): Sequoyah Claremore hasn’t won a game since 2017 before this season and now sits a game away from winning a district title. In its way is an always strong Adair team looking to win its eighth straight.

6. Class A No. 9 Crescent (6-1, 3-1) at No. 2 Cashion (9-0, 4-0): The War on 74 has become one of the best rivalries in the state. A young Crescent team will look to pull a upset against an experienced Cashion squad looking to make it back into the state title game.

7. Class C No. 5 Midway (8-0, 4-0) at No. 3 Sasakwa (7-1, 4-0): A great Class B battle for a district title before the playoffs begin. Midway will be tasked with stopping Sasakwa running back Thomas Rompf, who surpassed 6,000 career rushing yards last week.

8. Class 6A-II No. 4 Putnam North (6-1, 3-1) at No. 2 Stillwater (6-0, 4-0): Putnam North had an extra week to prepare for Stillwater’s offense. The goal? Trying to find a plan to at least limit star running back Qwontrel Walker, who surpassed 7,000 career rushing yards last week.

9. Class 3A No. 8 Vinita (6-1, 4-0) at No. 6 Verdigris (7-1, 4-1): Verdigris will hope to get quarterback Dylan White back from injury while Vinita will look to pull an upset and earn and finish district play undefeated.

10. Class A No. 4 Thomas (7-1, 6-0) at Texhoma (8-1, 5-1): A strong Class A battle that will test both teams heading into the playoffs. Thomas clinches the district title with a win while a Texhoma win could make a three-way tie for first.
