Shasta College enters bye week ranked 11th in California

Shasta College heads into its bye week flirting with a top 10 ranking in the state poll.

The Knights leaned on its defense again Saturday in a 20-7 win over visiting Sequoias to go to the midpoint of the season with a 5-0 overall record. It’s led to a No. 11 ranking in the Junior College Athletic Bureau (JCAB) Coaches Poll this week and inside the top 10 for the California Community College Sports Information Association poll (CCCSIA) at No. 8.

Despite climbing in both those polls — three spots in the CCCSIA and four spots in the JCAB Coaches Poll — Shasta was jumped by both American River College and Butte College, respectively, in the NorCal National Division Poll with both teams picking up their third win of the year.

The NorCal National Division Poll is what is used to determine the playoff seeds for the final four NorCal teams.

American River went from seventh to fourth after beating previous No. 3 Fresno City 9-3 and Butte beat Laney 24-7 to go from sixth to fifth. Shasta dropped from fifth to seventh. Other than Shasta, top-ranked San Mateo and No. 2 Modesto are unbeaten in the NorCal National Division Poll.

Shasta College also moved up 11 spots in the JCGridiron’s Dirty 30 National Rankings to No. 39. Butte comes in at No. 23 and American River is No. 24.

Below are the rankings:
