If Royal was attempting to save anything for Baylor, he may need those surprises. The Bears' Don Trull bombarded TCU with 20 passes for 273 yards (he leads the nation) and Flanker Larry Elkins, insulting TCU's double coverage, caught 10 (he also leads the nation), as Baylor won 32-13.
Since ARKANSAS Coach Frank Broyles never loses in November, the Razorbacks finally were playing up to predicted form after dropping three games by a total of nine points. Billy Gray ran for one touchdown, passed for two more and Broyles had his 19th November win. This time Texas A&M was the victim, by 21-7. RICE kept its title hopes alive, defeating Texas Tech 17-3.
