JC GRID-WIRE TOP 25 (10-1-02)

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Fresno earned first-place in the national J.C. Grid-Wire rankings by blanking unbeaten Foothill 44-0. Tony Caviglia's Rams also boast victories over Sacramento and Butte, but tangle with high-scoring San Joaquin Delta this Saturday.

Georgia Military didn't slip, it's just that Fresno squeezed past into first.  Cerritos came out flat against unbeaten Fullerton and managed to escape with a 24-20 nod, despite six fumbles.  San Francisco broke the all-time record for consecutive wins at 39 by whipping San Jose 63-3.
