The College of San Mateo football team opened defense of its 2022 state and national championship by taking on a familiar foe at College Heights Stadium Saturday, hosting fourth-seeded Modesto in the semifinals of the CCCAA Northern California regional tournament. The top-seeded Bulldogs were hosting the Pirates in the playoffs for the second year in a row. Last year, the Bulldogs cruised to a 30-0 win.

CSM claimed a 44-17 victory over City College of San Francisco in a must-win regular-season finale Saturday at Bulldog Stadium. With the win, CSM claimed the Bay 6 Conference championship for the second straight year.

Following another 60-point Bay 6 League victory, 62-7 over visiting San Joaquin Delta College, reigning state champion College of San Mateo (8-1 overall) will pit matching 4-0 league records with City College of San Francisco (9-0) in a Saturday, Nov. 11 title showdown at College Heights Stadium at 1 p.m.

College of San Mateo continues to roll over its Bay 6 Conference opponents, the latest a 66-3 victory at Chabot College in Hayward on Saturday afternoon. The defending state and league champion Bulldogs (3-1 Bay 6, 7-1 overall) took a quick 21-0 first-quarter lead over the host Gladiators.

Defending 3C2A state champion College of San Mateo (6-1) moved up a place to No. 5 after topping Diablo Valley, 56-7, which was the only team to defeat the Bulldogs in 2022. CCSF and CSM share the Bay 6 lead at 2-0 and meet in the league finale.

The College of San Mateo Bulldogs, en route to last season’s state football championship, experienced one hiccup. A second-half meltdown on Feb. 21, 2022 at Diablo Valley College saw a 21-point halftime lead slip away in a 23-21 defeat, the only loss of CSM’s season. The memory loomed large through the past week in the Bulldogs’ preparation for DVC’s visit Saturday to Bulldog Stadium.

San Antonio. All are 4-0, as is Fullerton, which moved up one position to No. 5.

The College of San Mateo Bulldogs illustrated the old football adage in real time, with a thrilling finish Saturday at College Heights Stadium.
