Who was the first black football player to play in major college football?

The first black football player at the collegiate level was William Henry Lewis. He played for Amherst in 1889. In that era, Amherst was one of the perennial powers. If, by "major college football", you mean the modern era in a modern conference, its hard to tell. Many teams and conferences, especially in the north, were promoting integration by the late 1950's and early 1960's. The first black Heisman winner was Ernie Davis, who played for Syracuse and won the award in 1961.
