The playoffs are nearly upon us, but before we can have the playoffs, we have to determine the playoff teams. We can't cover every game each week, but for those we are covering this week, we'll have playoff implications listed below.
Last week, we brought you a heavy dose of smaller division games and this week, we have several titanic matchups in the OKC area, highlighted by an undefeated showdown between Anadarko and Newcastle. Several other games feature teams that are both undefeated in district. Combined with the cool temperatures expected Friday night and this may be the best week yet.
Like we mention every year, we could use your help gathering scores from across the state each week. Keeping track of every score in the state is no easy task, and no one in the state has an up-to-date scoreboard each week like we do. That's because of loyal viewers like you. Here are all the ways you can help us gather scores this year.
Here are all the games we'll be at this week!
