FOOTBALL
has become something of a modern-day ritual-a spectacle that can
claim the Greek games, the Roman Circus, and the pageants of the
Middle Ages as antecedents. Every Saturday in the fall, on college
campuses across the nation, millions of people participate in the
ceremony that surrounds a football game. The colorful unfolding
of this spectacle involves a complex amalgam of people and ges-
tures, and the total drama extends far beyond the focal point of
the action on the field. Through the use of the pictures on the fol-
lowing pages, we have attempted to fit together some of the pieces
in the mosaic that describes a characteristic Saturday afternoon of
college football.
