Football Forecast: Week 8

Week 8
It turned out to be a HUGE Fall Break for our staff as they hit a season-high .835 winning percentage in Week 7 and are now just a tick shy of .800 for the season. That included hitting all 16 games in 6A correct and 15 of 16 in 4A. We'll see if the trend can continue as we head down the stretch run.
Last Week: 142-28 (.835)
Season: 822-212 (.795)

The Fab Five

Midwest City at Choctaw
Our Take: (Class 6A) It has been a LONG time since Choctaw was in this type of position, playing with still a chance for the district title this late in the season, but that's where the 2014 Yellowjackets stand. They've already clinched a playoff spot for the first time in three decades and now takes on a nearby rival in Midwest City that has won six straight since a season-opening loss to Tulsa Washington. The Bombers are averaging 30 points a game while allowing only 11. Choctaw is coming off a 21-17 win at Stillwater but must play better to have a chance at the upset this week against a Bomber offense that has been extremely balanced behind Brendan Brown and Alik Sezar.
Our Pick: Midwest City 21, Choctaw 14

Newcastle at Weatherford
Our Take: (Class 4A) While each team has virtually wrapped up a playoff spot in the top-heavy District 4A-1, this one has major implications in the playoff seeding race with both teams still having games left against 4A juggernaut Anadarko. Winner of this one though as the inside track to a home playoff game in round one. Newcastle has been stellar in a 7-0 start while averaging 33 points per game while giving up only seven. QB Casey Freeman has thrown for 1,172 yards and 14 touchdowns for the Racers. While Weatherford has been perfect outside of a Week 3 loss to 5A McGuinness it's been the Eagle defense that has had to carry the mail. The Eagles have allowed less than 10 points four times this season.
Our Pick: Newcastle 20, Weatherford 14

Washington at Lindsay
Our Take: (Class 2A) Huge showdown for the District 2A-3 lead and a battle of contrasting styles. Lindsay is throwing for 240 yards per game and 42.4 yards per game. Senior Jake Standridge has thrown for 1,561 yards and 16 touchdowns. Washington counters with a hard-nosed rushing attack that averages more than 223 yards a contest. The Warriors have won five straight since a Week 2 loss to Purcell but haven't faced the stiffest competition in that stretch. Senior Luke Ladlee leads the rushing attack with 797 yards and seven touchdowns while averaging 10.2 yards per carry.
Our Pick: Lindsay 34, Washington 28

Apache at Hollis
Our Take: (Class A) A battle of unbeatens with the winner being a heavy favorite for the district championship. Apache is unbeaten this year but the Warriors' last two defeats have come at the hands of Hollis, once in last year's state semifinals. Apache has been scoring at a 45 points per game clip and its defense has been almost identical to Hollis. Since a Week 2 win at Hooker (28-20), Hollis hasn't had a game closer than 34 points in its quest to repeat.
Our Pick: Hollis 30, Apache 21

Jenks at Broken Arrow
Our Take: (Class 6A) Each of these teams had high hopes entering the season but have been squelched somewhat after 1-2 starts in non-district play. Since that time both have been dominant as usual, setting up this showdown which by all indications should be for the district crown. Broken Arrow's offense has kicked into high gear the last four weeks, topped by Austin Gilmore and his 600 yards passing and four touchdowns. While Jamall Shawn has rushed for 892 yards and 10 scores. It looks like Jenks may have turned the corner after a pair of rare early losses to Union and Owasso.
Our Pick: Jenks 23, Broken Arrow 20
