Renegades Still #1

Six teams ranked in last week's J.C. Grid-Wire Top-25 met defeat over the weekend causing considerable shuffling in the rankings. Through it all Bakersfield's Renegades swept to a convincing 52-6 victory over L.A. Southwest in the Western State opener, to lay a solid claim to numero uno.

City College of San Francisco lost to Fresno, 19-16 and the visiting Rams climbed from 20th to 6th place on the charts.  Pearl River dropped a 24-17 decision to host Gulf Coast to create more flip-flopping.  Palomar proved to be rude hosts to Mt. San Antonio and climbed in to the top 10.  Butler rang up its third straight shut out and moved up to second.
