Clemson over Duke. This game could decide the Atlantic Coast title. Duke's passing will test the Tigers, but Clemson will be well prepared defensively.
Georgia Tech over Tulane. Tech's One-two punch—Stan Gann's passing and Tommy Wells's field goal kicking—is hard to beat. Tulane is still a year away.
Dartmouth over Harvard. Dartmouth's Bob Blackman has few peers as a defensive specialist, and he should have some tidy problems ready for Harvard—even if Charlie Ravenel is well enough to play.
Penn State over Illinois. The slipping Illini have lost two in a row. Penn State has the muscles and the passing to make it three straight.
Iowa over Purdue. The Hawkeyes have been cutting it thin lately and can't afford to relax against persistent Purdue. Better balance gives the edge to Iowa.
Minnesota over Michigan. The young Michigan team is inclined to make mistakes. It will suffer for its sins against the big and able Gophers.
Missouri over Iowa State. The Unbeaten Tigers, moving up in the Big Eight, have too many speedy backs and stubborn defenders for the little Iowans.
Mississippi over Arkansas. The first real challenge for Ole Miss. The Razor-backs are tough, but Quarterback Jake Gibbs will see the Rebels through.
Texas over Rice. The eyes of Texas, made weepy by Arkansas last week, will be on the Longhorns. Faster backs and a tougher defense will prove too difficult for an improving Rice.
Washington over Oregon State. Can the Huskies survive the loss of talented Bob Schloredt? They will find out against a capable Oregon State team.
