SAN MATEO – Riverside City College is No. 1 among California Community College Athletic Association football teams for a second week, ahead of San Francisco, San Mateo, and Long Beach — according to the JC Athletic Bureau’s weekly poll of coaches. There was no change in the top four this week. Positions did change a bit for the rest of the top 25.

Next in line are Diablo Valley, Canyons, Cerritos, Ventura, Golden West, and Fresno.

Riverside, defending National Central champions, defeated Saddleback, 38-18, and this Saturday will host No. 12 Grossmont at 6 p.m. at Wheelock Stadium – before beginning league play the last weekend of September. Diablo Valley moved up two spots after winning its East Bay showdown with formerly No. 5 Chabot, 26-10.

Grossmont won last season’s matchup when Riverside was ranked No. 1 in Southern California in week three, 38-28, at Mashin-Roth Field in an otherwise forgetful season for the Griffins. The stakes will be much higher this time around as both teams are 2-0.

Non-conference competition continues Saturday: Top Southern California games: #12 Grossmont at No. 1 Riverside, Bakersfield at No. 4 Long Beach, Santa Ana at No. 6 Canyons, No. 15 Fullerton at No. 7 Cerritos, No. 8 Ventura at defending state champion No. 20 Mt. San Antonio, No. 9 Golden West at Citrus, No. 11 Chaffey at Hancock, No. 17 Victor Valley at LA Southwest, SD Mesa at No. 22 Palomar. Northern California: No. 2 San Francisco at No. 10 Fresno, Butte at No. 3 San Mateo, No. 5 Diablo Valley at No. 14 Modesto, Foothill at No. 13 Chabot, Delta at No. 16 American River, No. 18 Sequoias at Siskiyous, No. 19 Laney at Sierra, Reedley at No. 21 Contra Costa in meeting of American Division unbeatens.
