Collinsville (7-4) vs. Skiatook (12-0) at Owasso High School

Skiatook beat Collinsville in a close one on Sept. 18th, 13-10. The difference was a Laben Fisher field goal in the fourth quarter to give the Bulldogs the victory. Skiatook, the runner-up in 5A last year, employs a balanced rushing attack with five 300+-yard rushers this season. Collinsville knocked off defending champs Lawton Macarthur 44-27 last week. Oklahoma State fans might also recognize a junior linebacker on the Cardinals defense, Levi Draper, who is committed to the Cowboys for 2017.

Bishop McGuinness (10-2) vs. Altus (11-1) at Cameron University

After losing a couple close contests early in the season, the Irish have run off nine wins in a row. Meanwhile, Altus got revenge against Guthrie, which knocked the Bulldogs out of the 2014 playoffs, in the first round and then blew out Coweta 59-34 last week.
