CCCAA State Football Title Campaign Still Has 3 Unbeatens:

   San Mateo (Oct. 17, 2016) – Riverside City College increased its lead this week in the JC Athletic Bureau’s statewide poll of California Community College football coaches after 2016 state runner-up and formerly No. 2 Saddleback lost its National Southern league opener to unranked Golden West, 20-17.

Riverside won its National Central lid lifter with Chaffey, 59-0, and this week hosts Los Angeles Harbor on Saturday. Saddleback hopes to bounce back, hosting No. 3 Fullerton. Meanwhile first round Central winners No. 10 Mt. San Antonio and El Camino clash in Torrance. Now No. 6 Saddleback hopes to bounce back, hosting No. 3 Fullerton. Riverside and Fullerton are the only unbeaten National Division teams in Southern California.

Now No. 2 Santa Rosa, the last remaining unbeaten National team in Northern California, visits defending state champion No. 8 San Francisco in a Bay 6 Cal match-up of state top ten teams. No. 17 Sacramento plays at No. 4 American River in the NorCal League. The Valley has No. 12 Modesto at No. 20 Fresno and No. 5 Laney at Sequoias.

–Each region will qualify three National league champions and one at-large team to contest the state title, beginning Nov. 19.

The American Division, which has only regional bowl games, still has four unbeaten (6-0) teams: No. 16 Los Angeles Valley and No. 19 Southwestern in Southern California and No. 18 Shasta and No. 23 Monterey Peninsula in Northern California. MPC plays at West Hills in a Friday evening Golden Coast League game. Saturday’s match-ups have Allan Hancock at LA Valley in the Pacific, Mt. San Jacinto at Southwestern in the Mountain, Shasta at Yuba in the Pacific 7.
