All the local colleges will be in action this week. This late in the season very few are playing for anything. The exception being the University of Redlands which has an outisde shot at sharing the conference title and a possibility of a wild card playoff berth.
Redlands at Pomona-Pitzer.
It’s one of the conference powerhouses against one of the lower tier teams. The Sagehens can throw the ball but don’t have much of anything else. The Bulldogs are deeper and more physical and should be able to overpower Pitzer’s offensive front so Jacob Caron might not have much time to get rid of the ball.
Redlands 44, Pitzer 14
La Verne at Whittier
This is a toss up but the Leopards have shown more progress lately than the Poets have.
La Verne 28, Whittier, 21
Claremont-Mudd-Scripps at Chapman
CMS has a trio of quarterbacks, two of whom are coming off injuries and the other a junior that hasn’t played much. The Panthers are solid and are playing at home.
Chapman 32, CMS 14
Riverisde at Chaffey
Chaffey is coming off a loss to woeful Citrus and Riverside has played better competition than have the Owls. Chaffey is the most penalized team in the state, with 185 yards called against it last week. One of Chaffey’s two quarterbacks was a no-show in practice for the first half of the week. That isn’t good.
Riverside 28, Chaffey 14
Southwestern at San Bernardino Valley
Southwestern hung 41 on Victor Valley and Victor Valley trounced SBVC. This one should be ugly early, unfortunately.
Southwestern 48, SBVC 10
San Diego Mesa at Victor Valley
If O’Ryan Bradley is back at quarterback the Rams could win a close one. If not they will lose. He is scheduled to go, for now.
Victor Valley 28, Mesa 24
