With less than three months left until the first kickoff of the 2012 season, Riverside City College football is heading into its preseason rank No. 7 in the nation, according to a poll.

JCgridiron.com has released its preseason poll rankings and RCC is No. 7, and is one of four California community colleges to be in the top 10.

Mt. San Antonio College leads the preseason poll as No. 1, followed by the defending state champion, City College of San Francisco as No. 3 and El Camino College as No. 6.
