Josue makes his second straight start, his third this season, for OCC … OCC ranks No. 33 in the SCFA in both points per game (16.8) and points allowed per game (34.7) … Southwestern has scored 174 points and allowed 174 … The 6-foot, 240-pound Tutogi's seven rushing touchdowns have come on just nine carries … Both teams defeated San Diego Mesa and lost to Grossmont … OCC has surrendered 25 sacks and thrown 13 interceptions and its minus-seven turnover ratio ranks No. 33 in the SCFA … OCC ranks No. 3 in fewest penalties committed and has benefitted most from opponent's penalties among SCFA schools.
