Friday Football Fever kicks off on Thursday with the Sierra Stallions taking on the Mitchell Marauders. Other matchups for the night include the Mullen Mustangs visiting the Pine Creek Eagles, the Rampart Rams traveling north to battle the Heritage Eagles, and a matchup down in Pueblo as the Pueblo County Hornets face the Pueblo Central Wildcats.
The Game of the Week is one of the three big rivalries in Pueblo between the Pueblo East Eagles and the Pueblo South Colts. "The Cannon Game" kicks off at 7:00 PM at Dutch Clark Stadium. The rivalry between the schools began back in 1959.
The gridiron matchup became commonly known as "The Cannon Game" back in 1976, when a real Civil War-era cannon was donated by the Steel City Kiwanis, and both school's Key Clubs. Since then, the winner of the annual battle takes home this trophy, and decorates it in either Pueblo South black and white, or Pueblo East gold and white.
The Colts have bragging rights heading into Friday night, winning the cannon last year by the final score of 20-19. "Colt Nation" will look to keep the cannon on the southside of town, while the "Eagle Empire" hopes to make the cannon boom gold.
News5 Sports will be live with a preview at 6 p.m., followed by full coverage in our 10 p.m. newscast.
