College football 1967 gets under way with a new emphasis on the fight for No. 1. For the first time our football staff picks the Top 20 teams and provides an extensive scouting report on each. Dan Jenkins writes of the mystique of national rankings, explores how the football polls began and tells why coaches are paying more and more attention to them. Robert Cantwell probes the strange relationship between Ohio State and Columbus. Nine pages of color photographs show national championship contenders in action, an assessment of the major conference races suggests the fates of both haves and have-nots, the best small-college teams are picked and pro scouts offer their choices of the players to watch in '67. Plus, of course, a full budget of regular features and news.
