OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- With divisional matchups under way, week 5 of the high school football season in Oklahoma features some key matchups. This week's Prep Parade looks at a few of them: Lawton Eisenhower at Moore In a battle of two of Class 6A's elite teams, No. 9 Lawton Eisenhower will meet No. 3 Moore on Friday.

Eisenhower (3-1) is coming off a 31-28 loss to Del City last week, a game that Eisenhower led 28-7 in the fourth quarter before Del City reeled off 24 straight points for the win.

Moore (4-0) is coming off a 35-21 win over Putnam West in which quarterback Mike Hale completed 13 of 15 passes for 187 yards and two TDs. He also ran for two scores.

While all teams in Class 6A seem to be playing for second place behind unbeaten Jenks, the Eisenhower-Moore game should at least solidify the class structure in 6A.

------ Piedmont at Tuttle One is a former Class 3A No. 1 coming off a stunning defeat. The other is an up-and-comer riding high after four straight wins.

Piedmont (4-0) won 26-8 against Newcastle over the weekend and moved from No. 5 to No. 3 in this week's Class 3A poll. The win featured a 99-yard TD run by Ronnie Osborne, followed the next series by a 59-yard TD pass to Grant Potter.

Tuttle (3-1) fell from No. 1 to No. 6 after a 20-7 loss to Kingfisher. Tuttle had seven turnovers and was penalized 14 times for 108 yards. Tuttle came into the game having won 11 of its last 12 games.

After leapfrogging in the poll, Piedmont will be looking to prove its high rating, while Tuttle will be out to show the Kingfisher loss as a lapse.

------ Marietta at Davis It's a battle of unbeatens in Class 2A as No. 2 Davis meets No.

7 Marietta.

Davis (4-0) beat Wynnewood 35-0 last week, while Marietta (4-0) was equally underwhelmed in a 56-15 victory over Kingston. Watch Marietta quarterback Wesley Elmore who had 410 yards passing and six TDs, running for another, against Kingston. He and Marietta will be looking for respect in trying to knock off favored Davis.

------ Midwest City at Edmond North Both Midwest City and Edmond North are coming off big wins and both are looking to prove themselves in an important regional battle Thursday in the talent-rich 6A.

Midwest City (3-1) beat Mustang 61-10 last week. The No. 8 Bombers rushed for 583 yards, but had to overcome a myriad of penalties and turnovers. Meanwhile, the Midwest City defense held Mustang without a first down in the half.

Edmond North won 31-7 last week at Norman North. Britton Langdon rushed for 121 yards and threw for 93 more. Edmond North scored four times in the second quarter and ran for 312 yards.

------ There were several outstanding performances during Week 4: -- Corey Spotwood ran for 376 yards and four touchdowns for Crooked Oak in a 36-0 win over Maud.

-- As a running back for Lindsay, James Burch carried the ball five times for 100 yards in a 65-0 win over Riverside. As a linebacker, Burch returned three interceptions for scores.

-- Chickasha Kevin McKenzie ran for 335 yards and two TDs in a 54-20 victory over Duncan.

-- Chase Holland of Heritage Hall scored five times and had 231 yards in a 42-0 win over Watonga. He also had 13 tackles.

-- Nazareth Gates carried the ball 21 times for 233 yards and two TDs in a 40-3 win over McGuinness.
