Riverside routed the South's top seed and undefeated Ventura College, 41-21, in the Southern California semifinals on Saturday to advance to its fifth-consecutive SCFA championship game. Golden West defeated third-seeded Canyons, 20-10, on the other half of the southern bracket to earn its championship bid.

The Tigers (9-2) will look to reach their second-consecutive CCCAA State Championship, while the Rustlers (11-0) aim to advance to their first-ever state championship in program history.

Riverside and Golden West met in Week 4 of the regular season. Golden West bested the Tigers, 37-20, behind a high-flying offense that featured strong quarterback play leading to 456 yards of total offense (6.2 yards-per-play). They snapped the Tigers 22-game regular-season winning streak and 16-game winning streak.

The winner of Saturday's contest will host the CCCAA State Championship on Dec. 11. In the north, undefeated City College of San Francisco (11-0) hosts College of San Mateo (10-1) in the NCFC regional championship. That game also kicks off at noon and will be streamed live online on by NorCal Sports TV.
