No football program did more for the integration of college football than Michigan State and head coach Duffy Daugherty and his Underground Railroad. Jimmy Raye was the South's first black quarterback to win a national title in 1966. In the Game of the Century against Notre Dame, Michigan State's roster featured 20 black players with 11 black starters, while Notre Dame's only black player was Alan Page. Until Michigan State changed the face of the game, teams in the South all-white and integrated teams included only a handful of black players.
