    San Mateo — Notes on the official 2014 California Community College Football Coaches Association state poll, as compiled by the JC Athletic Bureau.                                                             (111014)

There’s a virtual tie atop the state rankings heading into the final week of regular season play. Riverside City College and College of San Mateo each received seven first place votes but Riverside edged the Bulldogs by one point, 409-408, for the No. 1 position.

Defending state champion and now No. 7 Butte wrapped up the NorCal league’s state playoff berth with a 31-28 win at previously undefeated American River last week, dropping the Beavers from No. 1 to No. 5 in this week’s poll (but both teams received first place votes).

There are no undefeated teams remaining in the National (state championship) Division. San Mateo plays at No. 3 San Francisco Saturday afternoon to decide the National Bay 6 title and likely No 1 north seed for the state playoffs.

Other colleges already “in” the 8-team state playoff field are No. 1 Riverside, No. 6 Fullerton and No. 11 Ventura. The SCFA wild card team will be determined this weekend.

ADD TWO WILD CARDS: Each region will add one wild card team, which will be determined by (slightly different) power rating formulas (adopted by the respective regional associations).

 

In the Northern California Football Conference, the wildcard contenders are the loser of the CSM-CCSF game plus American River (8-1, 3-1), which closes NorCal league play in a second place battle at Sacramento CC (6-3, 3-1). Although American River gave both San Mateo and San Francisco their lone loses in non-league play, power rankings (which emphasize strength of schedule) determine the NCFC wild card.

Current power ranking order: 1. CSM; 2. CCSF; 3. American River; 4. Butte.

 

The top Southern California Football Association contenders are Central league teams Mt. San Antonio (8-2, 4-2), which has clinched at least a share of second place,  and Long Beach (7-2, 3-2), which closes by hosting El Camino (3-6, 1-4) Saturday at 6 p.m. In the Southern league, current runner-up and wild card hopeful Golden West (7-2, 4-1) hosts Saddleback (4-5, 3-2), which can still tie the Rustlers for the league runner-up up spot.

STATE PLAYOFF SCHEDULE: State quarterfinals will be hosted by region No. 1 and No. 2 seeds on Nov. 22. Top surviving seeds will host regional finals on Nov 29. Southern California champion hosts the California Community College Athletic Association state title game Dec. 13.

 

No. 12 Laney will play at No. 24 Chabot for the National Valley title Saturday night.
