This work sketches the historical highlights of collegiate football. Predominating are the ``first'' and ``best'' lists: first game, first forward pass, first homecoming, first team to fly; best games, best rivalries. Also touched on are the famous cheers, half-time songs (including lyrics), and the game as portrayed by Hollywood. A wrap-up segment on rosters and records and an excellent index give this substantial reference value. A lively layout makes it an even better browsing item. For popular collections. William H. Hoffman, Ft. Myers-Lee Cty. P.L., Fla.
