Next week

College football opens its 1966 season with more critical early games than ever before. Dan Jenkins looks at the year ahead and picks the No. 1 team. For the first time Paul Dietzel, now coach at South Carolina, describes the circumstances under which he left LSU and Army. There are candid studies of other leading coaches, as well as detailed scouting reports on all 116 major and 136 small-college teams.

Packers meet Colts before our color cameras in a lively week that also brings Cassius Clay's fight with Karl Mildenberger and the U.S. tennis championships at Forest Hills.
