The magic number to claim an official state football championship appears to be 99. After falling just short in season No. 98, College of San Mateo will have to wait at least another year. Riverside City College, in its 99th year of community college football, took advantage of Bulldogs errors on Saturday to win its first California Community College Athletic Association title, 31-14, at Bakersfield College Memorial Stadium.

Victory No. 7 was a win like no other this season for the undefeated College of San Mateo Bulldogs. A 24-hourlong adventure that started with the game being relocated from the Bulldogs’ home field ended in an impromptu road trip to Oakland, and a 29-14 victory Saturday afternoon over Laney College. With CSM’s campus being entirely closed down Saturday and Sunday as a precaution in case electrical power was cut by Pacific Gas & Electric, the Bulldogs had to go into hurry-up mode to not only transport the team to Oakland on 24 hours notice, but to clear their locker room and facilities of all game-day equipment and uniforms as the campus was not accessible Saturday.

The Bulldogs face one last test before the start of Bay 6 Conference play. And it figures to be their toughest test yet. Saturday’s matchup with College of San Mateo hosting Modesto Junior College — kickoff at College Heights Stadium is slated for 1 p.m. — pits the Bulldogs defense, one of the best in the state, against the hyper-versatile offense of Modesto Junior College. “Modesto’s offense, they’re explosive,” CSM head coach Tim Tulloch said. “They have a lot of big plays. They run the ball well. Their quarterback is dynamic. He may be the best player in Northern California.”
