So when did the SEC integrate?

 

Apparently after 1963, which is the date on that magazine cover.

I recently posted this photo in the "Best Decade for Uniforms" thread (because it's an awesome picture).

Can anybody help with identifying a few of the teams?  First, the obvious... we have two from USC (#64 and 19), two from Northwestern (the purple jerseys), and the orange helmeted guy is from Illinois. I have guesses on a few others... I think the gold and green is either Notre Dame or Baylor, and the blue and white is either Duke or Kentucky. I believe the lone African-American representative (it was the mid-60's) is from Oklahoma, but I could be wrong (that shade of red and the TV numbers make me doubt it's Alabama... Arkansas is a possibility).  The red uniform with the UCLA stripes could be a lot of teams.  The two that I'm most lost (and most curious) about are the bookends up front. That blue and gold on the left and the orange (I think it's orange) and blue on the right are great looks... West Virginia?  Florida?  Anybody help?

what team is that, its a football team.

I had a feeling Ole Miss would be last to integrate.
