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 1969, both services ranked 9–0 North Dakota State first and 10–0 Montana second. They later met in the Camellia Bowl, which North Dakota State won, 30–3.[1]

Bowl games[edit]

The postseason consisted of four bowl games as regional finals, all played on December 13. The Grantland Rice Bowl moved from Murfreesboro, Tennessee to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
