Established in 1936 as the "Lambert Trophy" to recognize supremacy in eastern college football, the award has since grown to recognize the best teams in the East in Divisions I-A, I-AA, II and III.

West Virginia (4) 6-1 40
Navy 6-131
Boston College (1) 5-2 31
Connecticut 5-2 24
Syracuse 3-4 18
Penn State 2-518
Rutgers 4-312
Buffalo 1-4 13
Temple 1-7 6

To be eligible for the Lambert Awards, a school must be located in the East or play half of its schedule against eligible Lambert teams. The territory includes New York, New Jersey, New England and Pennsylvania while teams in the bordering states of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia and the District of Columbia qualify if half of their schedule features eligible teams. Playoffs and bowl games are included in the polling.
