1964 College Football All-America Team

The 1964 College Football All-America team is composed of college football players who were selected as All-Americans by various organizations that chose College Football All-America Teams in 1964. The seven selectors recognized by the NCAA as "official" for the 1964 season are (1) the Associated Press (AP), (2) the United Press International (UPI), (3) the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), (4) the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), (5) the Central Press Association (CP), (6) the Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA), and (7) the Sporting News. Other selectors include Time magazine and Football News.

AP, UPI, NEA, and Central Press were all press organizations that polled writers and players. FWAA was also a poll of writers,[1] and the AFCA[2] was a poll of college coaches. The Sporting News and Time magazine polled football scouts and coaches.[3][4] AP, UPI, NEA, Central Press, and The Sporting News chose both first and second teams. AP, UPI, NEA, and Central Press also listed numerous honorable mentions.
