american river college

Sacramento County’s two Community College football powers, American River and Sacramento City, squared off on Saturday at historic Hughes Stadium. The No. 5-ranked American River College Beavers, led by quarterback Tanner Trosin’s two rushing and two passing touchdowns, beat the Sacramento City Panthers 44-23. ARC’s Deon Ransom rushed for an eye-popping 220 yards and two touchdowns while QB Jason Samuels (11) led the Sacramento City attack.

The game was the regular season finale for both teams, but both will continue playing. The 9-1 ARC will play in the Gridiron Classic Bowl, their first-ever California Community College playoffs game, this Saturday, Nov. 22 at 1pm at American River College. SCC, 6-4, will play in the East Bay Bowl, a non-playoff bowl game, also this Saturday at 1pm at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill.
