UPS AND DOWNS
Michigan is No. 1 (College Football 1976, Sept. 6). Thanks, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED. We needed that!
KEVIN P. BENNETT
Michigan? The Wolverines have enough trouble trying to beat Ohio State and win the Big Ten. Now you have them winning the national championship. Come on!
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Just raise Nebraska three notches and add Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma State for a complete Top 20.
Blue Springs, Neb.
I was thoroughly shocked that you failed to rank the UCLA Bruins.
Van Nuys, Calif.
Alabama wouldn't be second in the Big Eight.
Thank you for recognizing the University of Maryland, which has a fine football team and a great overall athletic program.
ROBERT J. MURPHY
Maryland ahead of Penn State and Pitt?
NEAL S. SCHIFF
You stated that, except for Maryland, "ACC football is still out in the cold." North Carolina surprised your 17th-rated Miami of Ohio 14-10.

Notre Dame could field its best interhall team, play without coaches and go back to the one-platoon system and still have a better team than Miami of Ohio.
GREGORY T. EINBODEN
You said Memphis State hopes to upset Mississippi and Tennessee but "don't bet on it." Memphis State 21, Mississippi 16.
