Ohio State punched through the beefy Iowa line for 295 yards rushing—greatest single-game yardage yielded by Iowa this season—and beat the Hawkeyes 17-13. Fullback Bob White, a lone Kentuckian amid a roster full of Ohioans, was the heft of the Buckeye ground game, scored the winning touchdown in the last period (see page 22). OSU now has just one more game—with traditional rival Michigan—before its New Year's Day picnic in the Rose Bowl.
Little Hillsdale College of Michigan extended its consecutive win streak to 34—now the longest in the country—by trouncing Gustavus Adolphus 27-7.
Texas A&M, hitherto the toast of Texas, got nothing but cold shoulders from Rice, fell in another of the day's stunning upsets, 6-7. Rice held down the Aggie running game with a nine-man line, while Quarterback King Hill, a basketball and golf star in his spare time, scored the Owl touchdown and kicked the point. The Cotton Bowl assignment is now a three-way scrap between the Aggies, Rice and Texas, each of whom has lost one Southwest Conference game (see page 24).
As for Oklahoma, that winning streak had to end sometime, and Notre Dame did it 7-0 in the season's biggest upset (see page 18).

THE FAR WEST
Balding Jack Morris, Oregon's speedy 25-year-old fullback, blasted for 212 yards and a new school rushing record to lead the Webfoots over Southern California 16-7. Morris, already drafted by the Los Angeles Rams, showed what he hopes to do to Ohio State in the Rose Bowl by kicking a field goal and scoring on a 67-yard dash while many of the meager crowd of 30,975 were still looking for their seats in Los Angeles' yawning Coliseum (see page 22).
