1. TEXAS (1-1)
2. BAYLOR (1-0)
3. TCU (1-1)


Coach Johnny McKay, bested last week by play-calling Oregon State Coach Tommy Prothro, took a turn at quarterbacking, but had no more success than his players as USC stumbled and bumbled to a 7-6 defeat by TCU. Washington , sluggish but more than adequate for little Idaho , ran over the Vandals 41-12. While Schloredt rested, the most exciting Husky was sophomore Charlie Mitchell, who ran a kickoff back 85 yards for a touchdown, picked up 71 yards in eight carries.

Wisconsin returned to the Pacific Coast to smash Stanford 24-7. While frustrated Dick Norman sadly watched his receivers bobble his well-intentioned passes, Wisconsin sophomore Ron Miller reached his receivers for 16 of 25 and three scores.

Quarterback Rich Mayo picked up Air Force in the last quarter, pitched three touchdown passes and led the Falcons past Colorado State 32-8. The top three:

2. UCLA (1-0-1)
3. AIR FORCE (1-0)
