SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 15, 2005--The Mt. San Jacinto College Eagles will battle the Saddleback College Gouchos in the sixth annual U.S. Bank Beach Bowl on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 4 p.m. at Santa Monica College's Corsair stadium.

The game features two teams coming off extremely successful seasons, both ranked in the top 15 in the California Community College Football Poll for Southern California. Mt.
