Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

An expansion of the 2007 second edition, Boyles and Guido's (coauthors, 50 Years of College Football ) sizable guide extends their retrospective study to include over 7000 games and 55 seasons of the top 70 college team lineups. The text is organized first by year, then team. Because it is a data index (with occasional injections of humorous commentary), it is crammed with information and printed in an eye-crossingly tiny font. An excellent complement to the ESPN College Football Encyclopedia , which opens with the 1936 season. Recommended for sports collections.
