A noteworthy review of College Football Teams from School Library Journal on November 1, 2021

Readers interested in learning more about the most storied teams in NCAA history will find a lot of information in this series. After a brief athletic history, each book dives into unique qualities (like mascots and traditions) as well as notable athletes associated with the schools. Some current NFL stars, like former Auburn Tiger Cam Newton, are lauded, but a great deal of the quarterbacks and running backs named throughout this series are classics like Joe Montana, Joe Namath, and Bo Jackson. Historic coaches, like Knute Rockne of Notre Dame fame, get their fair share of praise as well. Some of the most interesting information and trivia tidbits are imparted via small callouts in the teams’ colors. The writing itself, while not particularly compelling, is clear and easy to follow. ¬≠VERDICT Libraries may want to cherry-pick local (or rival) schools from this basic series.

A noteworthy review of College Football Teams from Booklist on October 1, 2021

This book in the College Football Teams series (12 titles) highlights the Army and Navy football teams and their legendary rivalry. It describes the glory years of both teams as well as their traditions, like the fact that the whole student body of West Point marches onto the field before the Army-Navy game—the cadets from the U.S. Naval Academy do the same. The text highlights each team’s history, statistics, memorable games, and notable Heisman Trophy—winning players from both sides. Sidebars include interesting factoids, while visually arresting full-page color and archival black-and-white photos enhance the text. This brief overview is a good addition for young readers who are interested in quick facts about the Navy Midshipmen and Army Black Knights team rivalry. Back matter includes a glossary, index, and further reading resources.
