Rankings from AP Poll

Rankings[edit]

College Division teams (also referred to as "small college") were ranked in polls by the AP (a panel of writers) and by UPI (coaches). The national champion(s) for each season were determined by the final poll rankings, published at or near the end of the regular season, before any bowl games were played.

College Division final polls[edit]

In 1967, both services ranked the San Diego State Aztecs first and the North Dakota State Bison second. San Diego State later defeated San Francisco State 34–6 in the Camellia Bowl,[1] while North Dakota State later lost to Texas-Arlington in the Pecan Bowl, 13–0.[2][3]

Bowl games[edit]

The postseason consisted of four bowl games as regional finals; Mideast and West played on December 9, while East and Midwest played on December 16.

Bowl Region Location Winning team Losing team Ref
Tangerine East Orlando, Florida Tennessee–Martin 25 West Chester 8 [6]
Grantland Rice Mideast Murfreesboro, Tennessee Eastern Kentucky 27 Ball State 13 [7]
Pecan Midwest Abilene, Texas Texas–Arlington 13 North Dakota State 0 [8]
Camellia West Sacramento, California San Diego State 34 San Francisco State 6 [9]

In 1968, the Boardwalk Bowl succeeded the Tangerine Bowl, and the Pecan Bowl moved within Texas, from Abilene to Arlington.
