2013, Week 11: Oceanside No. 1 Again, Barely

Oceanside is back on top in the U-T San Diego football poll, despite losing 30-6 to Mission Hills, the No. 2 team, a few weeks back.

I voted for Oceanside.  My thoughts were as conflicted as the total points separating Nos. 1 and 2.

Oceanside compiled 276 points and 12 first-place votes following its 43-0 blowout of La Costa Canyon last week. Mission Hills followed with  12 first place votes and 275 points after a 31-14 victory over Rancho Buena Vista.

Oceanside had one more second-place vote than the Grizzlies.

It seems the U-T panel may have awarded the Pirates more style points for their win.

Oceanside and Mission Hills could settle it all if they meet again in the Open Division playoffs.

Other potentially attractive rematches won’t happen because several of the Top 10 teams are in different playoff divisions.
