1. LSU (8-0-0)
2. AUBURN (6-0-1)
3. MISSISSIPPI (7-1-0)
When asked for a résumé of football in the West as the season was nearing its end, Los Angeles Correspondent James Murray replied succinctly: "On the basis of today's play, we would rate the Air Force No. 1 in the West, followed loosely (and we use the word advisedly) by California, USC, Washington State, Oregon and, probably, Manual Arts High. (We are kidding. Actually Santa Monica High is better.) But it would be impossible to find 10 'top' teams on the Coast in this year of our Lord. The Ivy League looks ferocious by comparison."
But someone has to win, even on the West Coast, and last week it was California's turn to inch back into the PCC lead, beating UCLA 20-17, while Washington State upset Oregon State 7-0.
In other games USC defeated Washington 21-6; Oregon held off Stanford 12-0; Air Force squeaked by Denver 10-7. The top three:
1. AIR FORCE (6-0-1)
2. CALIFORNIA (5-3-0)
3. COLORADO (5-2-0)
