FOOTBALL SPECIAL: On Saturday, Pittsburgh plays Miami to begin the season. In its seventh annual football issue, SPORTS ILLUSTRATID takes you to the Midwest for a delightful afternoon on the Carleton College campus. There are scouting reports on more than 175 major and small college teams, a close look by Roy Terrell at the extraordinary—and sometimes exasperating—Woody Hayes of Ohio State and, for those who like controversy, Alfred Wright's choices of the best college players of all time. Plus news and pictures of the week's major sporting events.
