    San Mateo (Nov. 14, 2016) – Saddleback College heads into the California Community College Athletic Association state football playoffs as the No. 1 team in the JC Athletic Bureau’s final regular season state poll of California Community College football coaches. The defending Southern California Football Association champion Gauchos received nine (of 17) first place votes and 408 points to edge south top-seeded Fullerton by four points. Riverside is No. 3 and north top seed Butte is No. 4. Eight of the final regular season top nine teams made the state field.

Missing out were No. 7 Long Beach; also No. 12 Mt. San Antonio. They both tied with Riverside for the National Central League title. Riverside (9-1 overall) got the tiebreaker after beating Mt. SAC, 38-14, in the regular season finale. Also not making the cut was No. 10 City College of San Francisco, the reigning state champ — but runner-up in the National Bay 6 to No. 9 College of San Mateo. Those two leagues accounted for six of the top dozen teams in the state poll (with Santa Rosa in the latter position)! All are in bowl games. The NorCal League had the north’s top two power ranked teams, however, in champion Butte and runner-up (and No. 5 ranked) American River. They will host first round playoff games.
