In 1951 the University of San Francisco football team (The Dons)
went undefeated and untied. Yet, despite being among the best
college football teams of all time, the squad was not invited to
play in a post season bowl game because two of its players were
African-American. The team was offered the chance to compete
without the players, but they unanimously refused on principle.
They were the 'magnificent eleven' that no one had ever heard
of. The team exhibited a roster of players and personnel that read
like a 'who's who' of gridiron heroes. This '51 team produced nine
future NFL players; five made it to the Pro Bowl and three of those
five were inducted into the Hall of Fame; the most ever from a
single college team. Undefeated, Untied, and Uninvited goes behind
the scenes to explore the successes and challenges as well as the
unpredictable events that faced the Dons.
