Thursday Night Showdown Preview, Bullard vs. Clovis North

Clovis North has been one of the favorites to win a section title, pretty much all season long. They get their playoff run started against tenth seeded Bullard on a special playoff addition of Thursday Night Showdown.{}For Clovis North, capturing the crown in the Valley's top division would be extra special because they felt a little disrespect{}after winning the D-II{}title.

Bullard has been where Clovis North wants to go, making it to the Valley title game, as recently as last year, and they've already pulled one playoff upset in 2012, beating Stockdale last week.

Kickoff from Veterans Memorial{}Stadium is set for 7:00. You can watch it live on The CW, KFRE 59.
