This is WAAAAY cool! Two local schools, Bakersfield High and Bakersfield Christian are playing for state football championships tonight! They'll both play on the same field in Carson, the Eagles at 4:00pm and the Drillers at 8:00pm.
It's the first-time since the state playoffis began that a Bako school plays for a title.
Both games will be broadcast live on Brighthouse-channel 11.
Additionally, in another WAAAAY cool football story, two Bakersfield quarterback's will face-off in the Las Vegas Bowl. Centennial-grad Cody Kessler vs. BCHS-alum Derek Carr as USC plays Fresno St.
Not bad for our little oil patch!
