Penn State over Navy. Without Joe Bellino, the Middies will be hard pressed to stay afloat against the big, fierce and highly optimistic Nittany Lions.
Alabama over Georgia. Bear Bryant's rebuilding program is on schedule. Typically tough linemen will spoil new Georgia Coach Johnny Griffith's debut.
Arkansas over Mississippi. Last year's defeat on a disputed field goal still rankles the Razorbacks. As usual, Ole Miss is two deep all over, but Arkansas has Lance Al-worth and a better offense.
Rice over LSU. This is one year when Coach Jess Neely isn't crying the blues. The Owls will smother LSU's learning juniors.
Kansas over TCU. The Jayhawks fly too fast and too high for the Horned Frogs, who have nobody in a class with Kansas' John Hadl and Curt McClinton.
Missouri over Washington State. With Mel Melin pitching and Hugh Campbell catching, the Cougars will score. But can they stop Missouri's swift sweeps?
Purdue over Washington. The Huskies have lost too much and need lime to regroup. Tougher defense will win for Purdue.
Georgia Tech over USC.* The Trojans are swifter than in the past, but Tech can match their speed and Stan Gann's nifty passing gives the Yellow Jackets an edge.
Syracuse over Oregon State. Two of the nation's best backs meet, but Syracuse's talented Ernie Davis will get more support than OSU's versatile Terry Baker.
UCLA over Air Force. The Bruins, with a stiff defense and fancy offense, are in a mauling mood.
