Rankings

College Division teams (also referred to as "small college") were ranked in polls by the AP (a panel of writers) and by UPI (coaches). The national champion(s) for each season were determined by the final poll rankings, published at or near the end of the regular season, before any bowl games were played.

College Division final polls

In 1967, both services ranked San Diego State first and North Dakota State second. San Diego State later defeated San Francisco State 34–6 in the Camellia Bowl, [1] while North Dakota State later lost to Texas–Arlington in the Pecan Bowl, 13–0. [2] [3]

Bowl games

The postseason consisted of four bowl games as regional finals; Mideast and West played on December 9, while East and Midwest played on December 16.
