The San Bernardino Valley College football team now needs an upset and a little bit of help if it is going to claim its first Foothill Conference title in a decade. Three teams headed into play last weekend without a conference loss and two went head-to head as SBVC treked to Antelope Valley, only to come up a 22-6 loser.
The task gets tougher. Saturday they will host College of the Desert, which is also unbeaten in conference play and looms as an even more fromidable foe. While Antelope Valley boasts the state’s No. 1 defense, it offense only does just enough to get by. Desert (7-0) has run roughshod over everyone and looks like the clear cut favorite.
So SBVC has to win this one, then hope Desert beats Antelope Valley.
