The Fresno Rams beat conference rival COS 60-17. It was the second-highest point total in the 63-game series since the Rams beat the Giants 73-16 in 2001, also in Visalia. The series, which dates to 1948, now stands 35-25-3 in FCC's favor.
FCC's freshman QB Bryant Moniz (6-0, 185) had what was probably his best game of the season: 19-37-0 for 282 yards and TDs of 7 & 17 yds. to soph. WR Jon Blea (6-5, 205), 4 catches, 57 yds.

Rams substitute running back Brandon Thompson (5-9, 160), Fr., ran 7 times for 107 yds., 2 TDs (his 67-yd. TD dash was Rams longest run of the season). FCC's kicker, and leading scorer Paul Rodriguez (5-11, 180), Fr., scored 12 points kicking 6-of-6 PATs and field goals of 37 & 32 yds. He has 41 points.
Once again, the Rams hard-nosed, and deep, defense was impressive. FCC allowed only 237 yds., 105 rushing, 132 passing. Fabien Capers (6-2, 225), So., DL, led the charge with 7 tackles (2 solo) including a sack and three hurries. Armondo Vasquez (5-10, 205), Fr., CB, snared an interception for the second straight week. This time he ran it back 43 yards for a TD. It was the 7th TD scored by the FCC defense this season (5 on picks, two on fumble returns).
Vasquez was also in on 6 tackles. Reggie Brown (6-2, 257), Fr., DL, was in on 6 tackles, one for a loss, and he recorded a hurry.
The Rams have allowed only 93 points in 7 games and host Sierra at Ratcliffe Stadium on Sat. night, 10/27, at 7 p.m. If FCC wins, it will be victory No. 100 for Tony Caviglia as a community college head coach. He was 22-10 at Chabot and is 77-18 at FCC.Former FCC head football coach John Volek is Sierra's AD and the Wolverines are 6-1 having lost at Sacramento City 26-22 on 9/7. The Rams won at Sac City 13-3 on 9/29. Jeff Tisdale, who used to coach Sac City and used to beat Volek, is now Sierra's head football coach. The atmosphere should be electric and the game should be outstanding.
