Rankings

Small college poll

In 1963, both United Press International (UPI) and the Associated Press (AP) conducted "small college" polls, and selected different number one teams. UPI's panel of coaches selected Delaware, who had a record of 8–0 and had outscored their opponents 290–76 while winning all their games by at least 9 points. [2] The AP's panel of sportswriters selected Northern Illinois, who finished the regular season at 9–0 including three shutouts. [3] The Huskies went on to defeat Southwest Missouri State in the Mineral Water Bowl, 21–14.

After the season ended, the NCAA announced plans to play "four postseason regional games" in 1964. [4] These were played from 1964 through 1972. [5] However, not until 1973, when the NCAA College Division was reorganized as NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III, did these postseason games to determine a national champion.
