The suddenly topsy turvy UT-San Diego football poll saw another change at the top this week after last week’s No. 1, San Pasqual, took a surprising haymaker from Rancho Buena Vista and fell , 38-36.
Mission Hills, upset two weeks ago by San Pasqual, quickly filled the void. The Grizzlies smashed Fallbrook, 61-21.
Meanwhile, Oceanside is lurking. The Pirates had 11 first place votes to Mission Hills’ 12 but added a more impressive victory to their resume, rudely ushering Ramona out of the undefeated ranks, 42-0.
Coach John Mc Fadden’s Titans of east Chula Vista won their seventh straight game and scored eight-first place votes after a workmanlike, 27-0 win over Bonita Vista.
What does it all prove?
There are no great teams in the San Diego Section this season, just some very good ones.
