Three Of Last Week’s NorCal Top 20 Football Matchups Live Up To Billing, But Majority Of Rankings Stay The Same •

Testing delays and other issues denied last week’s two Sac-Joaquin Section showdowns that would’ve really helped solidify that region’s NorCal Top 20 Football Rankings pecking order. Instead, No. 5 Monterey Trail-Elk Grove, No. 6 Rocklin and No. 7 Folsom are likely to remain in that order unless an upset occurs this week.

There were three other NorCal Top 20 Football showdowns last week that absolutely delivered on the hype. No. 9 Clayton Valley-Concord edged No. 10 San Ramon Valley-Danville 17-14, No. 18 Los Gatos erased a 19-0 deficit to beat No. 17 Wilcox 20-19, and No. 20 Manteca knocked off No. 19 Oakdale 26-23. The winning teams each gained ground in the rankings, except Clayton Valley since none of the Top 8 lost.

The rankings welcome two newcomers this week. Campolindo-Moraga, debuts at No. 19 as it’s poised to finish the season 6-0 should it beat rival Miramonte-Orinda (1-3) this Friday. Bishop O’Dowd-Oakland enters at No. 20 after an impressive 20-0 shutout of James Logan-Union City just one week after the Colts showed up as one of our “5 Teams Knocking.”

With this seemingly being the last week available to play for many programs — coupled with the fact that there are no longer proximity restrictions on opponents — we wouldn’t be surprised if a couple last-minute schedule changes materialize that might impact the rankings. If they don’t, the matchup to watch is the All-Stockton showdown between No. 12 St. Mary’s and No. 14 Lincoln.
