Football Forecast: Week 12

Week 12
It comes down to the nitty gritty this week with semifinals in Class 6A and quarters in four others as only 88 teams remain alive battling to get to Thanksgiving Week. We'll see if our guys can keep up the pace in selections after missing just 13 winners a week ago. It gets aa lot tougher this week however.
Last Week: 75-13 (.852)
Season: 1337-292 (.821)

The Fab Five

Union vs. Mustang
Our Take: (Class 6A) Just three weeks ago these two played a thriller in Mustang that Union had to come from behind and win 30-24 late. Mustang QB Chandler Garrett led the way for the Broncos early before the Redskins slowed him just enough to win. He has thrown for more than 2,300 yards and 18 scores. Union also has to contend with Chase Brown and his 1,380 yards and 15 touchdowns. The Redskins have been here plenty of times in recent years however and have a veteran leader at the controls in QB Mason Farquhar and his 1,735 yards passing and 17 touchdowns. Mustang won't be intimidated, even going on the road to the Tulsa area, but Union seems to have a knack for always getting it done in the playoffs.
Our Pick: Union 28, Mustang 24

Jenks vs. Owasso
Our Take: (Class 6A) When you've got the top two statistical defensive teams in Class 6A Division 1 you can about guarantee points will be hard to come by. Owasso ended a LONG dry spell against Jenks earlier this season with a 7-6 win in another defensive slugfest and you can expect more of the same. Jenks relies on QB Cooper Nunley, who has thrown for a shade under 2,000 yards and 21 scores. Owasso counters with versatile Gabe Neph and 2,000 yards of total offense and 24 touchdowns. Twenty points will probably guarantee a victory but we don't think either offense can get there as stingy defense rules the day.
Our Pick: Jenks 13, Owasso 7

Kingfisher at Seminole

Our Take: (Class 3A) If this seems like a familiar story, there’s a reason. This will be the second meeting between these teams this year and the fourth in three years. Kingfisher has won the previous three (in fact, if you take away the Kingfisher games, Seminole is 36-0 since the beginning of 2012), including 20-6 in Week 6 at Seminole. In that rain-soaked game, Nick Smith ran for 293 yards and two touchdowns. Meanwhile, Seminole was limited to 166 total yards, 116 of which came on two plays. Kingfisher also forced four turnovers. Kingfisher’s front line is better than Seminole’s but the Chieftains might be playing better at this point in the season. Plus, the law of averages eventually catches up with everyone.
Our Pick: Seminole 22, Kingfisher 20

Newcastle at Fort Gibson
Our Take: (Class 4A) Fort Gibson has given up some points at times this season, including 21 last week to Cascia Hall, but the Tigers haven't missed a beat offensively despite facing some of the state's best. They have scored at least 35 points in 10 of 11 games with great balance, averaging 257 yards a game on the ground and 188 through the air. Newcastle has been fairly similar statistically but with a slight edge to the air. The Racers average 217 yards passing and 176 yards a contest on the ground. Toss out a 47-17 loss to top-ranked Anadarko in Week 9 and Newcastle hasn't yielded more than 21 points in any outing.
Our Pick: Fort Gibson 28, Newcastle 21

Hollis at Wynnewood

Our Take: (Class A) Talk about some game-breaking ability. These two squads have some of the best in the state, much less in Class A, at being able to go the distance any time they touch the football. Hollis averages more than 40 points an outing and has one of the most dynamic signal-callers around with Keegan Macias, who has 2,113 yards rushing, 28 touchdowns and averages a whopping 12.5 per carry. Wynnewood is explosive in its own right with 38 points per game, including the playmaking tandem of Pete Carter and Curtis Rushing, each of which average just under 10 yards every time they touch the football.
Our Pick: Wynnewood 31, Hollis 27
