The No. 7-ranked Bulldogs (3-0 overall) shut down Fresno City College’s final three possessions to hold on for a 21-19 victory Saturday at Ratcliffe Stadium. With the win, CSM is off to a 3-0 start for the second time in three years.

College of San Mateo caught two big breaks in the fourth quarter Saturday to escape from Sierra College with a 37-36 win in Week 2 of the community college football season.

While temperatures for the 2017 community college football opener in San Mateo surpassed 100 degrees, the College of San Mateo Bulldogs were keen to rebrand the overbearing weather with a ’Dog day of their own. And boy did the ’Dogs start in style.

With Thursday’s first official scrimmage in the books though — an afternoon matchup with Laney College at College Heights Stadium — it is clear CSM has its sights set on being the big-play Bulldogs.

College of San Mateo football coach and former Woodside coach Larry Owens will be honored on Saturday with a Lifetime Achievement award and Proclamation from the City of East Palo Alto for his years of service to the community.

The Bulldogs (7-4) saw their season come to an end in Saturday’s playoff opener in a 30-12 elimination loss to Butte (9-2). With a steady rain throughout the afternoon and the natural turf in Oroville growing more muddied as the game wore on, CSM was held to just 250 yards of total offense.

Martinez and Brady’s relationship began in 1992, when Tom Brady Sr. took his son to CSM for some pointers. The lessons never stopped. As Brady blossomed into one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history, he kept Martinez close at hand. The coach became a national cult figure known as the “quarterback whisperer.”

With College of San Mateo having already clinched an automatic playoff berth last Saturday with its defeat of Santa Rosa Junior College, Bulldogs head coach Larry Owens turned to backup quarterback Chris Zografos to helm the team in Saturday’s regular-season finale.

Carlos Silva booted a 22-yard field goal with 1:05 remaining in regulation to lift the College of San Mateo Bulldogs to a 26-23 win at Santa Rosa Junior College. With the win, the Bulldogs (4-0 Bay 6, 6-3 overall) clinched at least a share of the Bay 6 Conference title and an automatic berth to the California Community College Athletic Association playoffs, slated to begin Nov. 19.

While the College of San Mateo Bulldogs were battered and bruised, they were not beaten against reigning state champion City College of San Francisco in arguably the most important Bay 6 Conference matchup of the season to date.
