Auburn vs. Tennessee
Auburn's great defense, still led by Center Jackie Burkett and Guard Zeke Smith, should be no less impregnable than it was a year ago. And there will be more offense to worry Tennessee. AUBURN.
Kentucky vs. Mississippi
Ole Miss, rolling again with Quarterback Bobby Franklin and Fullback Charlie Flowers supplying the impetus, is too strong for the Wildcats despite the latter's almost upsetting Georgia Tech last week. MISSISSIPPI.
Georgia Tech vs. SMU
Tech teams rarely beat themselves, but SMU's Don Meredith, one of the nation's top passers, will do it for them. A victory for SMU.
Louisiana State vs. TCU
LSU is loaded with talent, while TCU's strength lies in its line. Attack will make the difference, and the Tigers have Cannon, Robinson and Rabb. LSU.
Army vs. Boston College
Navy shot the Eagles down last week, and now it is Army's turn. I can't see BC containing Bob Anderson's running and Joe Caldwell's passing. A win for ARMY.
Notre Dame vs. North Carolina
The Irish are rebuilding and learning under new Coach Joe Kuharich and may find the Tar Heels too advanced. Despite the Clemson loss, I'll take NORTH CAROLINA.
Wisconsin vs. Stanford
Stanford's Dick Norman throws the ball, but so does Wisconsin's Dale Hackbart. A leaky defense will cost Stanford dearly. WISCONSIN.
Northwestern vs. Oklahoma
Northwestern has a fine passer in Dick Thornton, but the big question is: Can the Wildcats match material-rich Oklahoma in depth? I'll be working this game on NBC-TV, so I won't pick a winner.
Iowa vs. California
Things have changed since these two teams met in the Rose Bowl last January. Neither figures to be as strong. A close one, but the nod goes to IOWA.
Southern California vs. Pitt
This may be the year of renaissance for the Trojans, who have come up with a powerful line and breakaway backs to spark the offense. Pitt has lost too much. USC.
