Batavia is gearing up this week to support the high school football team as it prepares for the Class 6A state championship game Saturday in DeKalb.

The Bulldogs will take on Richards High School at 1 p.m. at Northern Illinois University.

Tickets are $10. Students can purchase them at the high school athletics office during lunch periods today and Tuesday. The public can purchase tickets from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the athletics office, 1201 W. Main St., 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Batavia Fine Arts Center, 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday in the field house hallway during the Windmill City Classic boys basketball tournament, and 9 to 10:30 a.m. Thursday at Batavia's stadium.

Tickets will also be sold Saturday, starting at 8:30 a.m. at NIU's Huskie Stadium. Tickets will allow access to all games played there that day.

On Tuesday, the school will have a media and youth night for people to meet the players, take photographs and obtain autographs.

On Thursday, the public is invited to watch the team practice at 9 a.m. Batavia Youth Football will have a Turkey Bowl on the practice fields next to the stadium. At 8:45 a.m., the BYF players will form a tunnel behind the field house for the varsity players to run through. The varsity team and the feeder program have had a relationship for several years, including a game the BYF played under the lights in the stadium earlier this season.
