A college football quiz to test the memory and add to the knowledge of the casual fan and the armchair expert

College Football 1961
THE EAST
With players like Penn State's Bob Mitinger staying at home these days, the top teams on the North Atlantic seaboard will rank with the very best in the country
THE SOUTH
The emphasis, as usual, will be on defense when southern teams play, but North Carolina State's big quarterback, Roman Gabriel, may cause some worried coaches to have serious second thoughts
THE MIDWEST
John Hadl is that modern-day rarity, a triple-threat quarterback. He leads Kansas in a region that boasts more good football teams than any other
THE SOUTHWEST
Baylor's Ronnie Bull may not be the only authentic All-America in a section of the country where fleet backs are almost as plentiful as jack rabbits. The teams are so evenly matched it is unlikely that any one of them can finish undefeated
THE WEST
Marshall Shirk, UCLA's aggressive tackle, likes few things better than a rough ball game. He and hundreds of other players, most of them Californians, are reason enough why West Coast football should be better than it has been in years
SMALL COLLEGES
They are not really small any more. Many have over 10,000 students and plenty of athletes like West Chester (Pa.) State's Joe Iacone (left), who are good enough to play on any football team

Conzelman
How to Take a Biscuit Apart and Put It Back Just Like It Was
He used to coach pro football (he was named professional coach of the year in 1948), he was a superb all-round athlete in his youth, he is a piano player, singer and speechmaker extraordinary. He has acted in musical comedies, he is currently the vice-president of a leading advertising agency, and when he sings his song about this great scientific breakthrough you know that if anybody could do it, the irrepressible Jimmy Conzelman is your man
