Navy over Army. Both are well rested and eager to do battle. Army can match Navy in the line and has better passing with Tom Blanda, but the Middies' Joe Bellino will make the difference.
Boston College over Holy Cross. The Eagles will have to catch those fleet Holy Cross sophomore backs, but better defense will win for Boston College.
Auburn over Alabama. The Tigers, who are tough any time, can't go to a bowl and they would love to spoil Alabama's chances. Even without Ed Dyas, they should succeed.
Georgia Tech over Georgia. Coach Bobby Dodd will find a way to stop Francis Tarkenton's passes. The husky Tech line will do the rest.
Mississippi over Mississippi State. Ole Miss wants the SEC championship too badly to let down against old rival State. Jake Gibbs will get the job done.
Florida over Miami. The Hurricanes blow hot and cold. Florida has its eye on the Gator Bowl, and would like to go in with an 8-2 record.
LSU over Tulane. LSU doesn't score much, but neither does the opposition. The trick this week will be to stop Tulane's brilliant halfback, Tommy Mason.
USC over Notre Dame. Suddenly the Trojans have come to life and they seem energetic enough to send the Irish to their ninth straight defeat.
UCLA over Utah. The Utes will have trouble hand-fighting the bruising UCLA line. And Bill Kilmer will give the Bruins enough offense for a victory.
Baylor over Rice. Can a Bear outsmart an Owl? This one will have a Bull (Ronnie, that is) to help keep Rice from a piece of the Southwest Conference title.
