Penn state over Pitt. The Nittany Lions have been waiting for a whole year to get even with the chewed-up Panthers. Better offense will win for Penn State.
Yale over Harvard. Celebrated as The Game, this should be just another spirited workout for Tom Singleton and the talented Elis.
Tennessee over Kentucky. The Vols are still in the running for a bowl bid, but they will have to guard their flanks against the free-running Wildcats.
Missouri over Kansas. The winner gets the Big Eight title. The Jayhawks are testy enough to extend unbeaten Missouri to its limit, but the Tigers have too much balance, backfield speed and all-round strength for Kansas.
Minnesota over Wisconsin. Iowa will be praying for a Wisconsin victory, but the Gophers aren't likely to fumble their chance for a share of the Big Ten championship.
Ohio State over Michigan. It has been a good season for the powerful Buckeyes. Michigan's sophomores still make too many costly mistakes.
Rice over TCU. Tenacious defense, led by Tackle Bob Lilly, makes TCU hard to beat, but the Owls are more adept at moving the ball.
Oregon State over Oregon. A close One. Tailback-rich State will have both Don Kasso and Terry Baker ready for the Ducks. They will make the difference.
UCLA over USC. The Trojans have no one to match UCLA's Bill Kilmer, an authentic triple-threater who makes the Bruin single wing so dangerous.
Utah State over Utah. Hopes for the Skyline title and an unbeaten season will give Utah State the incentive it needs to turn back the Utes.
