Colorado, obviously pointing for the big one with Oklahoma, staggered and stumbled through the cold and gloom at Boulder before Halfback Howard Cook led the Buffaloes to a 27-16 victory over Nebraska. Air Force and Utah each scored twice in the last quarter, but the Utes lost a chance to tie when an illegal substitution cost them 15 yards on the important extra point, and the Falcons won 16-14. Wyoming made the mistake of relaxing after building up a 12-0 lead while New Mexico kept plugging away to win 13-12 and take over the Skyline Conference lead. The top three:

1. AIR FORCE (4-0-1)
2. COLORADO (5-0)
3. CALIFORNIA (4-2) and OREGON STATE (4-2)
