JC Grid-Wire Top 25 (11-04-03)

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Butler County overcame a two touchdown halftime deficit to defeat Garden City 35-28 and advance to the Kansas finals against Coffeyville. Troy Morrell's Grizzlies survived a weekend that found five unbeaten teams biting the dust for the first time, including second-ranked Dixie State and No. 3 Mt. San Antonio. Just nine teams still sport spotless records as some conferences start playoffs and others have an eye toward bowl games.

The California teams are still a couple of games behind the others in the games-played section.
