The Bell Game

Tonight, the national spotlight isn’t on a Super 25 team. It isn’t on a big school. And it isn’t on Texas or California or Florida. It’s in the small town of Brookfield, Mo., where the Bell Game is being played for the first time since being voted on as USA TODAY High School Sports’ best high football rivalry.

We’ve been reporting live from Brookfield for the past two days, and will continue to do so throughout the night.

Lights out

The Pleasure Park (Louisville, Ky.) and Manual game was postponed tonight.

This was no rain delay.

A vehicle drove into an electrical pole near the Pleasure Park campus, knocking out all of the electricty, The Courier-Journal reported.

The game will be played Saturday at 7:30pm. No one was injured in the incident.

Pleasure Park’s principal Dave Johnson explains:

Prank gone too far?

Richardson (Texas) police are investigating a dead goat that was found hanging on the Berkner High School practice field’s goal post this morning. Berkner plays at rival Plano East tonight. Plano Schools spokeswoman Lesley Range-Stanton told the Dallas Morning News that the school district is not involved in the investigation.

Thanks to Max Preps for bringing this story to our attention.

Forfeits and Cancellations

Bowie (Md.) and Westlake (Waldorf, Md.) forfeited their scheduled games against Lackey and C.H. Flowers, respectively, after both teams were involved in an on-field fight last week. Meanwhile, many teams in Colorado have had their games canceled or postponed due to rain of “biblical proportions.”

Maximum effort


We’ve got an early nominee for the next round of Plays of the Week and it comes from California, where Jacob Zinda returned an interception 109 yards for a touchdown last night.

That’s a lot of flags

Busy night for the officials in Pennsylvania.
