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.”

The Bulldogs, it seems, have Fresno City’s number — and that number is 3. The College of San Mateo Bulldogs defense was indeed on display in a 17-3 victory in a battle of unbeaten teams Saturday at Ratcliffe Stadium in Fresno.

The untrained eye will look at the first three weeks of the season for the College of San Mateo football team and marvel at the numbers. The Bulldogs are 3-0 and moved up to No. 2 in the state in the JC Athletic Bureau Coaches’ Poll. They’ve beaten College of the Siskiyous, San Joaquin Delta and American River by a combined score of 129-20, having scored 40 points or more in all three. Yet CSM head coach Tim Tulloch believes the Bulldogs can be so much better.

Luke Bottari was locked in and showed off his depth of receivers as the College of San Mateo Bulldogs scored a decisive win over a notoriously bothersome foe. No. 3-ranked CSM (3-0 overall) racked up 504 yards of total offense to roll past No. 5 American River College 42-10 Saturday at College Heights Stadium. It marks the first time the Bulldogs have defeated the Beavers in a regular-season game since 2015.

It took mere seconds for the College of San Mateo Bulldogs to start painting the field blue in the home opener at College Heights Stadium. Within the opening 16 seconds of Saturday’s 43-3 walloping of San Joaquin Delta, the Bulldogs had scored twice — before they even took their first offensive snap. “I don’t know if we’ve done that on a home opener,” CSM head coach Tim Tulloch said. “But that’s a good way to start it off.”

When Luke Bottari hit Terrell Carter with a 20-yard pass Saturday during the first quarter of College of San Mateo’s season opener, it marked a changing of the guard in Bulldogs football.

College of San Mateo will seak a fourth straight football title in the nation’s toughest community college football league, the Bay 6, as the Bulldogs enter their 98th year of JC/CC competition.

Now in remission, Dovenberg returned Monday to CSM for the Bulldogs’ first official practice of the upcoming 2019 season. He was met by a rousing welcome prior to taking the field when he walked into the team meeting room.

In only its third season, the CSM Women’s Volleyball team posted a 20-9 overall record and qualified for the CCCAA post-season.

The College of San Mateo football team picked the wrong time to have an offensive hiccup, dropping a 14-0 decision to conference rival Laney in the semifinals of the Northern California regional playoff Nov. 17, ending the Bulldogs season.
