Don’t expect Burroughs High football Coach Keith Knoop to whip his team into a frenzy leading up to the Big Game.

And don’t expect Burbank Coach Hector Valencia to let his squad get caught up in the hoopla surrounding the annual cross-town rivalry game.

Both coaches agree that having their players tone down their emotions, take a more workmanlike approach to the contest and not get too riled up in the grandeur of the game, will lead to better results.

The Bulldogs and Indians will get a chance to put that approach to the test when the two meet at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Memorial Field in the 61st meeting of the historic cross-town rivalry.

The game will determine this year’s Pacific League champion, as the Indians (7-2, 6-0 in league) hold a one-game lead over the Bulldogs (7-2, 5-1). If Burbank wins the contest, the rivals will share the league crown.
