How did the 1959 season impact the future of College Football? A Memorable Season in College Football: A Look Back at 1959 is a comprehensive study of this unique season. Beginning with an overview of the college game as it was played during that era, the pre-season rules changes, and prognosticators assessments, it then follows all the top teams and players week by week, including game summaries, individual achievements, and the shifting weekly polls. A Memorable Season covers key conference races, the post-season awards, bowl games, and the social climate of racism as it pertained to college football. A History of the football programs at over twenty major universities, from the first season up to 1959, are summarized throughout the text. The history of major post-season bowls and the college game itself are explored. Finally, a thorough analysis is made to determine which really was the top team in 1959, how a different outcome may have occurred, and why this season was so pivotal in the development of the modern game of college football.
