PUEBLO — Oh, yeah. It's one of the biggest football rivalries around and Pueblo's getting ready for the 61st Cannon game between Pueblo East and Pueblo South at Dutch Clark Stadium. Before the game, cheerleaders and dancers from both schools held a pep rally at the Pueblo County Courthouse.

News5 spoke with both sides about what the rivalry means to them.

Hannah Graham from Pueblo South, " This is a real good time for everybody to come together as a community, it is a rival game but we are both really good teams so we really like to come together as one and just cheer on for both of our teams and wish each other good luck.

Kaleya McCollum from Pueblo East, "I really enjoy it, it is really fun. I enjoy cannon because it is full of spirit and it is not necessarily about winning but having fun."

Tonight, we will find out whether Cannon booms gold or black at 7:00 p.m.
