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.

Bill Walsh and John Madden. Not to mention Bill Ring and Julian Edelman. In the 98-year history of football at College of San Mateo, there’s no shortage of Super Bowl champions who once played for the Bulldogs. The résumé is yet to be completed, though. Saturday afternoon at Bakersfield College Memorial Stadium, CSM can claim its first-ever state title.

Through last season, CSM and West Valley had played in the same Coast Conference North. Because of a realignment prior to this year, West Valley moved to the Coast Conference South, meaning the Vikings and the Bulldogs have yet to play each other in 2019. That will change Tuesday night when CSM travels to Saratoga for a 7 p.m. start. “Everyone is excited,” CSM head coach Katie Goldhahn said. “West Valley has been on our side of the conference for the last three years (2016-18) … so I think our girls are super excited to see them.”

You’re probably going to experience some growing pains after a 36-year layoff. The College of San Mateo men’s basketball team got off to a tough start, dropping its first three games of 2019-20 at the City College of San Francisco Tournament. The Bulldogs still made a little history, though, as Friday’s game against Santa Rosa Junior College marked their first return to the court since 1983.

It took the College of San Mateo Bulldogs seven plays to put two touchdowns on the board — and this before their offense ever set foot on the field.

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.
