From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The 1958 NCAA College Division football rankings are from the United Press International poll of College Division head coaches. The 1958 season was the first year UPI published a poll in what was termed the "Small College" division. The Associated Press did not start their version of the poll until 1960. In most of the weekly polls, the Top 10 included the team's record while the "Second 10" did not. Individual team records in the Top 10 were sometimes missing as well.
