In 1964 none of the long-standing polls picked ND that year. The AP and UPI went to Alabama, the NCF and Billingsley went to Arkansas, Michigan and Notre Dame each got computers (Dunkel and Sagarin,
In 1973 Alabama, ND, OSU and Oklahoma all winning polls or computers that are relevant (as measured by the fact that these polls/computers are used in the BCS).
