College football gets the last ever Sporting News print cover

Dr. Saturday

The Sporting News announced it is going all digital on Jan. 1, and will no longer print its regular publication after 126 years. And college football graces the last issue of the regular magazine, which should be a collector's item.

Notre Dame's Manti Te'o and Alabama's A.J. McCarron are the dominant images on the cover, which was tweeted out by The Sporting News' Matt Hayes. The issue previews the bowl games with the headline, "An American Classic," which has a double meaning on TSN's last print copy.

The magazine has a lot of history. As Matt Crossman of Sporting News pointed out, Alabama and Notre Dame weren't even playing football when The Sporting News first started publishing in 1886.

TSN will still publish its college football yearbook, as well as yearbooks for NFL, baseball, college basketball, fantasy football and fantasy baseball, and the usual TSN content will be online. We wish the best for The Sporting News in its all-digital age.
