Goodbye Columbus, Hello Frostburg

There is too often a tendency to think of the college game in terms of Columbus and South Bend. The country knows of and has come to recognize Bear Bryant, Darrell Royal and Woody Hayes. But these things are only a part of college football. The game, as these and succeeding pages show, is also played in such places as Frostburg, Md. and Spearfish, S. Dak. and, while they are in no danger of being recognized, Hornsby Howell, Tillman Sease and Gladden Dye Jr. are coaches, too. When the Millsaps squad comes barreling onto the field, it is just as charged up as USC, and the action promises to be furious, even though it does not cost as much to watch.

New Hampshire's acrobatic cheerleaders go through an on-campus warmup drill while a couple of the victorious Frostburg State Bobcats give each other a muddy hand.
