Since small-college teams like Amherst, Williams and Maine have been covered, I am prompted to suggest that Springfield College, undefeated in nine games in the New England area, should also be mentioned.

Amherst lost only one game this year, and that was to Springfield. Williams lost only two games, to Springfield and Amherst. A check on Springfield's record and its quarterback, Dave Bennett, would reveal some outstanding statistics. Springfield remains the only undefeated small-college team in the New England area. Such a fine record cannot be ignored.
