After losing four of its first five games, City College came back winning five of the last six games.
The team closed out the season on Nov. 21 by defeating the Laney Eagles 40-17 in the Laney Eagles Bowl.
The Panthers earned the Mid-Empire Conference title after defeating the American River College Beavers, 54-51.
