Haffner 1970s College Football Tournament
Permalink  
 


For this 1971-1979 tournament - which has its share of plastic grass, but not a lot of big hair - I will be taking the top four ranked teams from each year (using the UPI and AP polls).  1970 is not included because that year was part of my initial Haffner and Bowl Bound tournaments.  The 1971 and 1972 scores are as follows: 

1971           Teams                      Winner
First Game     Nebraska vs Colorado       Colorado 21-20
Second Game    Alabama vs Oklahoma        Oklahoma 9-7
Championship   Colorado vs Oklahoma       Oklahoma 37-28

1972           Teams                      Winner
First Game     USC vs Ohio State          USC 31-28
Second Game    Oklahoma vs Texas          Oklahoma 17-7
Championship   USC vs Oklahoma            USC 20-17

Yeah. You have to get to the mid seventies for the hair to.get long. Loved Thomas Lott's doo-rag. Used to wear one when we played in the sreets just to have the same look.

Or 76. Can't remember what Joe Roth's last year was.

1976. If it was 1975, I imagine Archie Griffin would be there.

I think I initially underestimated the amount of hair that they could fit under their Riddells.

Good point. There was a lot of lettuce peaking out.

Thanks. With 16 teams, I could have done a straight 16-8-4-2 playoff, but I wanted to give some byes for the teams that won their Round I mini-playoff. I also wanted to give some teams a second chance (especially those schools that didn't already have a representative in Round II). For those teams, I took into account their mini-playoff record and their real life rankings. Hence, 1971 Nebraska (a unanimous number one) was able to sneak in as the final seed even though they were 0-1 in Round I. They've made the most of it so far, but they take on top seed USC 1972 next.
