News 'B' above Burbank painted red ahead of rival football game
By Jason Wells,
1:18 p.m.

Pranks and head games when it comes to high school rivalries appeared to live and well today when Burbank residents awoke to red in the hills.

The white 'B' above the hills of Burbank has been painted red ahead of the rival football game between John Burroughs and Burbank high schools tonight.

Red is the school color for John Burroughs High, the visiting team at tonight's homecoming football game.

Big Game preview
November 09, 2010

WHAT: Burroughs vs. Burbank.

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Thursday November 11, 2010.

WHERE: Memorial Field.

RECORDS: The Indians are 5-4, 5-1 in league; the Bulldogs are 7-2, 5-1.

LAST WEEK: Burroughs lost to Muir, 28-21; Burbank defeated Crescenta Valley, 39-26.

OUTLOOK: The scenario for the annual cross-town rivalry is simple: the winner gets at least a share of the Pacific League championship. The loser could fall as far as fourth place. Coming into the game, Burbank, Burroughs and Arcadia all have one league loss. The Apaches play against Crescenta Valley on Friday, and Arcadia should prevail, which would give it share of the title. That means the winner between the Bulldogs and Indians would get a piece of the title for the second straight season. The game is also touted as the last at Memorial Field, as it is scheduled to be torn down and renovated after the season.

SOMETHING INTERESTING: There has never been a tie in the 62-year history of the Big Game.
