I have added all of the 1960s and 1970s teams to my original college football universe of the 1940s and 1950s. As of now, the Top 10 list is as follows:

1. 1955 Texas Christian (6-0)
2. 1945 Army (6-1) (only loss to 1955 Texas Christian, 27-26)
3. 1961 Mississippi (5-0)
4. 1947 Penn State (4-1) (only loss to 1945 Army)
5. 1960 Iowa (5-1) (only loss to 1945 Army)
6. 1941 Notre Dame (4-1) (only loss to 1945 Army)
7. 1961 LSU (4-1) (only loss to 1960 Iowa)
8. 1969 Penn State (4-1) (only loss to 1961 Mississippi)
9. 1950 Tennessee (3-1) (only loss to 1955 Texas Christian)
10. 1961 Texas (3-1) (only loss to 1961 LSU)

#1 1955 TCU and #3 1961 Ole Miss will play later this week. #9 1950 Tennessee is about to take the field against unranked 1958 LSU (1-1). I have only recently acquired the 1970s teams, so they are not yet represented in the rankings.

Some recent results:

1943 Purdue 6
#6 1941 Notre Dame 26 (defense only allowed 136 total yards against)

1968 Texas 27 (5 turnovers doom the Longhorns)
1968 Arkansas 47

1957 Army 49
1963 Navy 3 (Staubach 12 for 16 passing, but also 3 costly intercepts)

1979 Temple 21
1973 Penn St. 24 (John Cappelletti with 129 yards rushing)

1973 Texas Tech 12
1973 Oklahoma 14

#6 1960 Iowa 7
#2 1945 Army 35 (28 unanswered points for the Cadets to blow out the previously unbeaten Hawkeyes).

And, at the half, its 1951 Princeton 15, 1976 Rutgers 12.

1958 LSU KNOCKS 1950 TENNESSEE OUT OF TOP 10!

Heisman Trophy winner Billy Cannon scored a touchdown on a 9-yard run with just 15 seconds remaining in the game to give LSU a hard-fought 20-17 victory over #9 Tennessee yesterday. The loss knocked Tennessee out of the Top 10 and raised the prospects of 1958 LSU, who improved to 2-1, getting back on my table soon.

In other scores, 1976 Rutgers took advantage of 3 second-half interceptions off Dick Kazmaier to score 21 unanswered points and cruise to a 33-15 victory over 1951 Princeton. 1976 Rutgers is now 1-0, which 1951 Princeton falls to 0-3 and will not likely be back on the table any time soon.

TOUGH DAY FOR NEBRASKA

1971 Oklahoma 39
1971 Nebraska 13

In one of the most impressive offensive performances on my tabletop, 1971 Oklahoma amassed over 500 yards total offense in this game. The game was locked in a 6-6 tie at halftime before the Sooners took control in the second half. 1971 Oklahoma is slated to play 1971 Colorado in the near future.

1969 UCLA 31
1969 Nebraska 14

UCLA intercepted 3 Jerry Tagge passes to pull away from the Cornhuskers. The win makes the Bruins 2-0. They will play the winner of the 1969 Texas vs. 1962 Mississippi game later this week.

REBEL YELL!

1962 Mississippi Rebels won two games yesterday on their way to winning an 8-team tournament.

1969 Texas 7
1962 Ole Miss 10

Wesley Sullivan kicked a 31 yard FG late in the 4th quarter of this tight game to give Ole Miss the win. The Rebels held the vaunted Texas offense to just 187 total yards, including 0 passing yards.

1969 UCLA 19
1962 Ole Miss 42

The Rebels intercepted 3 UCLA passes and amassed 221 rushing yards on their way to a decisive victory over the Bruins in the tournament's championship game. The win raised 1962 Mississippi's record to 3-0, which means they will be getting to the table again soon. First, though, the 1961 Mississippi team is slated to play 1955 TCU in a battle of unbeatens.

Those early 1960s Mississippi teams were certainly powerful!!

LONGHORNS PREVAIL

1961 Colorado 0
1961 Texas 20

The #9 1961 Texas Longhorns welcomed the unranked Colorado Buffaloes to the Cotton Bowl and came away with a shutout victory. The game was a lot closer than the score would indicate, as the 3rd quarter ended with Texas holding a 7-0 lead. Colorado would advance the ball deep into Texas territory on multiple occasions, but could not punch it in. Finally, after committing no turnovers for the first three quarters, the Buffaloes turned the ball over 3 times in the 4th quarter allowing Texas to extend its lead. The win solidified 1961 Texas's spot in the Top 10 and caused 1961 Colorado to fall to 0-2.

IRISH KNOCK TROJANS FROM TOP 10

1966 Notre Dame 29
#10 1967 USC 23

Terry Hanratty led the 1966 Notre Dame Fighting Irish to a tough 29-23 victory over #10 1967 USC this morning. The Irish quarterback completed 12 of 18 passes for 148 yards and 1 touchdown. Sure-handed receiver Jim Seymour caught 6 Hanratty passes for 87 yards. USC's O.J. Simpson had a memorable performance with 170 yards on 25 carries, including a long 45-yard run in the third quarter.

Ironically, the win dropped 1967 USC to 3-2 and out of the Top 10, where they were replaced, at least for the moment, by 1953 Notre Dame (5-2).

The Top 10 presently stands as follows:

1. 1955 Texas Christian (6-0)
2. 1945 Army (6-1)
3. 1961 Mississippi (5-0)
4. 1947 Penn State (4-1)
5. 1960 Iowa (5-1)
6. 1941 Notre Dame (4-1)
7. 1961 LSU (4-1)
8. 1969 Penn State (4-1)
9. 1961 Texas (4-1)
10. 1953 Notre Dame (5-2)

There are 4 teams with 3-1 records who will be playing over the next week or so and if any of them win they will likely crack the Top 10. The 1953 Notre Dame team lost only to #1 TCU and previously ranked 1950 Kentucky, but those two losses make them vulnerable to fall out of the Top 10. At 3-1, 1967 North Carolina State, 1952 Oklahoma, 1950 Northwestern, and 1948 Oregon all stand to gain from 1967 USC's loss.

#3 1961 Ole Miss vs. #1 1955 TCU Preview

Tomorrow morning the only two unbeaten teams in my college football universe (1940s through 1960s) will square off to determine who's #1!!

The 1955 TCU Horned Frogs currently hold that position by virtue of their 6-0 record and very narrow victory over #2 1945 Army (27-26 score). TCU is led by All-American running back Jim Swink. When Swink is on his game, the Frogs are difficult to stop. Ole Miss will need to key on him as much as possible.

The 1961 Mississippi Rebels come into this game with a 5-0 record including impressive wins over #8 1969 Penn State and a tough 1966 Michigan State team. The Rebels run the ball a lot, but not as much as TCU. For this game, it would serve Ole Miss well if they stayed on the ground, as the TCU pass defense is very good. Quarterback Glenn Griffing will shoulder most of the responsibility to control the Rebel's ground game, as he hands off to backs Billy Ray Adams and Doug Elmore.

Analysts are split as to who will win this contest, but the slight majority favor Mississippi. The Rebels are 2 point favorites.

Stay tuned!!!

"LIKE KISSING YOUR SISTER"

#3 1961 Ole Miss 11
#1 1955 TCU 11

Harold Pollard's 32-yard field goal with 0:45 on the clock earned 1955 Texas Christian a difficult 11-11 tie with #3 1961 Mississippi. The Horned Frogs came back from an 11-0 deficit going into the 4th quarter and scored 11 unanswered points to tie the game.

This was a very strange game! With punter Doug Elmore pinning the Horned Frogs back inside their 5 yard line on multiple occasions, the Rebels tackled TCU's star Jim Swink in the endzone twice for two safeties in the first half, as that half ended with the absurd football score of 4-0!! Mississippi scored the games first touchdown in the 3rd quarter when Glenn Griffing hit Ralph Smith with a 7-yard pass. That play was set up by a big 36-yard pass play to Reed Davis. Ahead 10-0 at that point, the Rebels decided to kick the extra point which would require TCU to go for two if they scored a touchdown.

Sure enough, not long into the 4th quarter, TCU marched down field with their most impressive drive of the day. Pollard scored on a 5-yard run. The Horned Frogs did indeed choose to go for two and Swink plunged in to make the score 11-8.

Getting the ball back again, TCU moved into Ole Miss territory, but stalled on the 15 yard line with a 4th and 8 situation. Pollard came out and made the field goal to tie the game (N.B. Pollard needed the FAC card draw to be not more than a 36. The card drawn was 36!!).

The tie has caused some controversy among observers of the Top 10, as now 1961 Mississippi (5-0-1) jumps over 1945 Army (6-1) into the #2 spot. But it was the Rebels' defensive effort against TCU that earned them the right to jump over the Cadets. In particular, Ole Miss held Swink to just 49 yards rushing. The 1961 Rebels have give up not more than 13 points in 5 of their 6 games! 1955 TCU remains unbeaten and, at least for the moment, in the #1 spot.

1. 1955 Texas Christian (6-0-1)
2. 1961 Mississippi (5-0-1)
3. 1945 Army (6-1)
4. 1947 Penn State (4-1)
5. 1960 Iowa (5-1)
6. 1941 Notre Dame (4-1)
7. 1961 LSU (4-1)
8. 1969 Penn State (4-1)
9. 1961 Texas (4-1)
10. 1953 Notre Dame (5-2)
