Game of the Week: Burkburnett at WFHS

Posted: Updated:

The Dr Pepper Game of the Week for Week 1 will feature the Burkburnett Bulldogs visiting the Wichita Falls High School Coyotes at 7 p.m. Friday night at Memorial Stadium!

This was a district rivalry for years in Class 4A before the Bulldogs dropped to 3A in the 2004 realignment.

The teams met every year from 1990 through 2007 before skipping the 2008 and 2009 seasons, but have met again the past two years.

Old High has won 12 of the previous 20 meetings between the two, but outside of a four-game win streak from 2002-05, the series is dead-even.

The Coyotes went on the road in Zero Week and beat Granbury 24-10, while the young Bulldogs lost at home to Gainesville 52-21.

Burkburnett won last year's meeting at home 32-27, after the Coyotes took a 59-35 win at Memorial in 2010.

Check back all week to hear from both teams about Friday's matchup!
