Synopsis

Presented here are 60 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 or Appalachian State's over Michigan, 34-32, in 2007--see front cover), great individual efforts (Jim Brown's 43 points in a single game), bizarre plays (Roy Riegel's wrong-way run that helped Georgia Tech defeat California), and Yale-Harvard, 29-29, in 1968 (the latter scoring 16 points in the final 42 seconds). Each story includes the highlights of the games, with quotes from many of the principals, a look at the contest's effects on football overall, career follow-ups for the key participants, and seasonal wrap-ups for the teams involved.
