WHEN: 7 p.m. Thursday.

WHERE: Moyse Field (Glendale High).

RECORDS: The Bulldogs are 5-3, 4-1 in the Pacific League; the Nitros are 2-6, 1-4.

LAST WEEK: Burbank lost to Muir, 24-17; Glendale defeated Crescenta Valley, 20-17.

OUTLOOK: Burbank was knocked into second place in league behind Muir with the loss last week. Burbank, ranked No. 10 in the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division, will have to win its final two games of the regular season and hope Muir stumbles against either Arcadia or Pasadena to get a chance at the league crown. One of those wins will have to come against Burroughs in the Big Game Nov. 2. Burbank will face a Glendale team that earned an impressive victory last week against the Falcons. The Nitros had to battle back from a 10-point deficit to gain the win, however. Glendale has a speedy wide receiver in Michael Davis and a steady running back in Christian Osorio. The Bulldogs have a fine crop of running backs that have helped them be successful this season, namely James Williams and Teddy Arlington. The Bulldogs continue to have the toughest defense in the league, surrendering an average of 16.5 points a game.


SOMETHING INTERESTING: Burbank is trying to earn a postseason spot after missing the CIF playoffs last season.


WHEN: 7 p.m. Friday.

WHERE: Pasadena High.

RECORDS: The Indians are 3-5, 3-2 in the Pacific League; the Bulldogs are 1-7, 1-4.

LAST WEEK: Burroughs defeated Hoover, 42-13; Pasadena lost to Arcadia, 21-7.
