In this week's postseason power rankings action, one team rose to the occasion while another fell hard. Among the action were the efforts of Bethany's junior Sam Brandt, an offensive menace who scored six total TDs.
Say hello to Stroud: the team broke into the power rankings at the 24th position after its notable last-week performance. Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, it beat Morrison 16 - 12. 16 is shaping up to be Stroud's lucky number as the team posted the same point total in its win over Morrison the game before.
Can't Touch This
Stillwater's 38 - 28 win over Washington last week had a lot to do with the leadership of sophomore Qwontrel Walker. Walker earned two touchdowns and 253 yards rushing the ball. That performance landed Walker among the top power-ranked players for the week.
Look Out Below
The dubious honor of 'biggest faller' in the power rankings this week goes to Millwood, who dropped down ten spots after its game against Vian. Millwood and Vian were almost perfectly matched up, but Millwood suffered an agonizing 27 - 26 defeat. The outcome was a definite jolt of excitement for Millwood after its previous game, where the margin was anything but close.
Next Week's Big Game
If you are itching to watch a first-rate contest, no game is supposed to fit the bill better than the one between Carl Albert (8th in the MaxPreps state rankings) and Collinsville (9th). Both teams have their heads held high after dominating their previous opponents. Carl Albert and Collinsville both have plenty of landslide victories under their belts (Carl Albert with nine and Collinsville with ten), but only one can come away triumphant this week. We'll find out who that is soon.
