Oklahoma High School Football RPI Rankings

Oklahoma High School Football RPI Rankings

This is the second straight week that we’ll rank the top 10 (or 5 for 6A-I and 6A-II) in every class based solely on RPI. Just a reminder, these aren’t who I think the best teams in the state are, it is just an unbiased way of ranking the teams using a simple formula.

25% – team winning percentage

50% – opponent’s winning percentage

25% – opponent’s opponent’s winning percentage

This formula does not take into account margin of victory, where the game was played, etc. It only takes into account games played against other teams in the OSSAA that are in a district. If you beat an independent team, you don’t get any credit for it, but if you lose to an independent team, you aren’t punished either.

CLASS 6A-I

1. Union (7-2) .682

2. Jenks (7-1) .647

3. Broken Arrow (8-1) .619

4. Southmoore (8-1) .608

5. Mustang (6-3) .568

Southmoore and Broken Arrow flip-flop, as Broken Arrow’s win over Santa Fe helps them more than Southmoore’s win over Norman. Mustang replaces Owasso at 5, even after a loss to #1 Union.

CLASS 6A-II

1. Booker T. Washington (8-0) .623

2. Lawton (7-1) .610

3. Bartlesville (8-1) .579

4. Midwest City (6-3) .559

5. Bixby (6-3) .534

Lawton’s win over Midwest City vaults them from #4 to #2 from last week as Bartlesville and Midwest City each drop one spot.

CLASS 5A

1. Skiatook (9-0) .707

2. Altus (8-1) .664

3. McAlester (7-1) .663

4. MacArthur (9-0) .647

5. Bishop Kelley (6-2) .638

6. Coweta (5-3) .594

7. Collinsville (4-4) .585

8. Ardmore (7-2) .582

9. Durant (4-5) .578

10. Bishop McGuinness (6-2) .570

Skiatook’s win over Bishop Kelley leaps them from #3 to #1. McAlester drops two spots to #3. Durant jumps in the rankings at 4-5, not so much because they defeated Noble, but because the other opponents on their schedule performed so well last week.

CLASS 4A

1. Wagoner (9-0) .669

2. Oologah (7-2) .643

3. Poteau (9-0) .636

4. Harrah (6-2) .627

5. Tuttle (10-0) .626

6. Anadarko (7-1) .603

7. McLain (6-3) .584

8. Cascia Hall (4-4) .583

9. Clinton (4-5) .581

10. Metro Christian (7-1) .573

Same 10 teams as last week, but only Anadarko, McLain, and Clinton remain in the same spots.

CLASS 3A

1. Jones (9-0) .665

2. Hilldale (9-0) .656

3. Locust Grove (9-0) .655

4. Heritage Hall (9-0) .626

5. Plainview (7-2) .624

6. Sequoyah-Tahlequah (5-4) .609

7. Blanchard (6-3) .609

8. Westville (7-2) .607

9. Douglass (6-3) .606

10. Bethany (7-2) .596

Heritage Hall moves from 8th to 4th. Lincoln Christian’s poor schedule still punishes them and keeps them out of the top 10, though they did move up from #16 to #13. John Marshall’s first loss of the season sees them drop from #18 to #23, but the Bears could take a huge leap with a win over Bethany in the season finale.

CLASS 2A

1. Adair (8-1) .652

2. Hartshorne (8-1) .639

3. Luther (9-0) .612

4. Colcord (7-2) .606

5. Vian (7-2) .605

6. Chisholm (9-0) .602

7. Davis (6-3) .599

8. Washington (8-1) .590

9. Lindsay (8-1) .589

10. Haskell (8-1) .581

Not much movement from last week. Luther’s win over Millwood sees them trade places with Chisholm in this week’s rankings, and as predicted last week, Washington jumps Lindsay with a win at Walters.

CLASS A

1. Stratford (9-0) .655

2. Mooreland (9-0) .649

3. Hollis (9-0) .633

4. Minco (8-1) .602

5. Kiefer (7-1) .596

6. Wayne (5-4) .576

7. Cashion (7-2) .572

8. Ketchum (7-2) .568

9. Ringling (7-0) .561

10. Mangum (7-2) .558

Only big change in this week’s poll is that Stratford takes over the top spot from Mooreland with a win over Wayne. Wayne, who wasn’t ranked last week, jumps in the rankings at #6 because of even though they lost to Stratford, it gave them a huge boost in strength of schedule.

CLASS B

1. Seiling (8-1) .640

2. Davenport (9-0) .637

3. Alex (9-0) .621

4. Laverne (6-2) .615

5. Turpin (8-1) .591

6. Geary (9-0) .584

7. Keota (8-0) .583

8. Weleetka (6-2) .583

9. Waurika (7-2) .574

10. Dewar (8-0) .566

Seiling remains #1, but Geary and Dewar jump into the top 10 as they keep their perfect seasons alive.

CLASS C

1. Fox (9-0) .667

2. Grandfield (8-0) .661

3. Cherokee (8-0) .642

4. Shattuck (6-1) .619

5. Coyle (9-0) .591

6. Deer Creek-Lamont (8-1) .586

7. Tipton (6-2) .577

8. Thackerville (6-3) .573

9. Webbers Falls (7-2) .562

10. Timberlake (5-4) .550

Fox jumps from #3 to #1 this week. No other major changes to the poll, aside from Sharon-Mutual dropping out of the top 10 and Timberlake jumping in.
