Army over Navy. The Cadet wounds have had time to heal—all except the one left by two straight losses to Navy. Stiffer defense will win for Army.
Boston College over Holy Cross. The Eagles have been maturing against tougher competition, but they will have to stop Pat McCarthy to beat the Crusaders.
Alabama over Auburn. But the unbeaten Crimson Tide may have a real tussle. In the end 'Bama's bruising defense, the best in the nation, and Pat Trammell will make the difference.
Georgia Tech over Georgia. It's been a tough year for rookie Coach Johnny Griffith. Tech will add to his troubles.
Mississippi over Mississippi State. Ole Miss can't afford to take its old friends too lightly. State is dangerous.
Tennessee over Vanderbilt. The Vol single wing is never easy to stop. It is even tougher since talented Mallon Faircloth took over as the No. 1 tailback.
Miami over Florida. The Hurricanes' Mira and Miller are the most potent M&M punch since Mantle and Maris. Their passing antics will be enough to beat Florida.
Notre Dame over Duke. The Irish can't be as bad as they looked against Iowa. Their line, at least, is too tough for Duke.
Oklahoma over Oklahoma State. The Sooners have their second wind. Bud Wilkinson is sure to have some new tricks up his sleeve for the Cowboys.
Rice over Baylor. Randy Kerbow has spruced up the Rice attack, and the Owls look to him to carry them all the way to the Bluebonnet Bowl.
