FOOTBALL PREVIEWS

BURROUGHS VS. PASADENA

WHEN: 7 p.m. Thursday.

WHERE: Memorial Field (Burroughs High).

RECORDS: The Indians are 3-2, 2-0 in the Pacific League; the Bulldogs are 3-2, 2-0.

LAST WEEK: Burroughs defeated Hoover, 45-7; Pasadena defeated Arcadia, 19-14.

OUTLOOK: Heading into the game, the Indians trail just Pasadena, 73-80, for fewest points allowed by Pacific League teams this season. The Bulldogs might be a tough team to figure out. Although Pasadena barely beat a weak Hoover team, 21-13, it also defeated Long Beach Jordan, 19-13, and lost to a good program in Saugus, 17-7. The two teams, along with Burbank, are the only undefeated squads left in league.

SOMETHING INTERESTING: The Indians didn’t crack the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division poll this week, but the team is listed as “others.”

BURBANK VS. GLENDALE

WHEN: 7 p.m. today.

WHERE: Memorial Field (Burroughs High).

RECORDS: The Bulldogs are 4-1, 2-0 in the Pacific League; the Nitros are 1-4, 0-2. 

LAST WEEK: Burbank defeated Muir, 29-28, in the two overtimes; Glendale lost to Crescenta Valley, 56-14.

OUTLOOK: The Bulldogs have to be sky-high after a huge win last week against the defending champions. Burbank will take on a Nitros’ team that averages just 14.4 points a game, while the Bulldogs average 31.4 a game. Glendale’s only win of the season came against South Pasadena, 28-21. Burbank is coming off consecutive games in which they defeated last year’s league champion (Muir) and runner-up (Crescenta Valley).

SOMETHING INTERESTING: The Bulldogs moved up this week in the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division poll, as they hold down the No. 5 spot.
