For the first time in 11 years, there is a split National Champion, as Colorado is voted number one in the AP poll, while Georgia Tech claims the UPI Coaches’ Poll. It was a wild season that saw the top spot change several times. The Yellow Jackets, who posted an 11-0-1 record for Bobby Ross, defeated Nebraska in the Citrus Bowl 45-21. Colorado edged Notre Dame 10-9 in the Orange Bowl, benefiting from a controversial clipping penalty that took a Rocket Ismail punt return off the board.
