Iowa over Minnesota. Coach Evashevski badly wants the Big Ten title before he retires to the athletic director's chair. Iowa's offensive skill and speed will overcome Minnesota's efficient defense.
Missouri over Colorado. The winner can take a giant step toward the Big Eight title. The Buffs are tough, but unbeaten Missouri's backs are better.
Kansas over Nebraska. The Jayhawks aren't as bad as they looked against Iowa. Kansas will do better in its own conference, even without ailing Bert Coan.
Arkansas over Rice. The Owls are flying high but the Razorbacks' flinty defense should bring them to earth.
Baylor over Texas. Despite the loss to TCU, the Bears are a sound, well-coached team. They should have enough bounce left to beat the Longhorns.
Syracuse over Army. With the pressure off, Syracuse may now begin to play up to its potential. The Cadets lack the depth to challenge the Orangemen.
Navy over Duke. Navy's running attack, with Joe Bellino to lead the way, will overcome Duke's excellent passing. But it won't be easy for the Middies.
Tennessee over Georgia Tech. The Vols' single wing can be just as punishing as the multiple T. The Tech defense has been too inconsistent and is vulnerable to passes.
UCLA over California. Cal broke through to win against Oregon State, but the stern UCLA defenders will trap the Bears and give the Bruins the victory.
Washington over USC. A Spot for an Upset—if the Huskies don't score early. They can't afford too many lapses against the eager Trojans.
