Rankings from AP Poll

Rankings[edit]

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[edit]

In 1964, UPI's top ranked team was the 9–0 Cal State Los Angeles Diablos. The 8–0 Wittenberg Tigers were top ranked by the AP panel, and second in the UPI poll.

Bowl games[edit]

The postseason consisted of four bowl games as regional finals, played on December 12.
