JC Grid-Wire Top 25 (11-23-04)

SANTA ANA, Ca.  The top five teams in this week's J.C. Grid-Wire rankings are so tightly bunched together they look like they should be on a banana boat.  San Francisco clings to a narrow lead for first-place, but any of the next four could easily be perched on top when the season's bowl and playoff flurry ends.

Two of the five will drop out of contention this weekend after Grossmont and College of the Canyons mix it up in Canyon Country and Butler tangles with Pearl River in Coffeyville's Dalton's Defender Bowl.
