SBVC and RCC get ready for Bell game

San Bernardino Valley College and Riverside will both be looking for their first win of the season when they square off at 6 p.m. on Saturday at RCC’s Wheelock Field.

The schools renewed the Bell Game rivalry last season although it wasn’t much of a contest as RCC prevailed 51-10.

It’s hard to really hard to consider this a rivalry. The SBVC program has had a pretty hard time winning in the last several years. And there have been a couple of breaks in the series with last year’s game being the first in five years.

It is also hard to build up a rivalry at the junior college level because of the turnover every two years.

Let’s hope the teams can work back toward making the game between schools in neighboring counties something special. A good, competitive, spirited game on Saturday will help.
