This is a must have for any serious fan of college football. Thoroughly documenting every key moment and statistic from the 1955 season to the 2007 NFL draft, it is simply the most comprehensive encyclopedia of the sport ever written. It’s perfect for fans looking for in-depth information like starting lineups, career statistics, AP Polls, NFL draft lists, and award winners, and has stats organized both by season and team. But, with expert facts and opinions on the game, this guide goes beyond mere number-crunching to get at the heart of collegiate competition. With profiles of the more than 100 stars and coaches, and more than 6,500 recaps of key games, it is a fun read as well as an essential reference.
