Since football's modern-day rules were adopted in 1912, colleges have offered many encounters that influenced the development of the sport. Presented here are 54 games featuring some of the most outstanding efforts in history--dramatic comebacks (such as USC's 1974 triumph over Notre Dame), stunning upsets (Columbia's 21-20 win over Army in 1947), great individual efforts (Jim Brown scoring 43 points in a single game), bizarre plays (Roy Riegel's wrong-way touchdown that gave Georgia Tech a win over California).Each story includes the highlights of the games, with quotes from many of the principals (Jim Plunkett, Sammy Baugh, Anthony Davis, among others), a look at the contest's effects on football overall (when appropriate), careers follow-ups for the key participants, and seasonal wrap-ups for the teams involved.
