THE TOP THREE:
A crowd of 66,752, including a group of Orange Bowl scouts, invaded Philadelphia's John F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium to see if it was true what people were saying about NOTRE DAME. It is true. The Irish, big, bold and overwhelming, sent their husky linemen crashing through Navy's weak front to get at Roger Staubach, and although they could not keep him from completing 19 passes from a shotgun spread, they held him scoreless. Quarterback Johnny Huarte, a neat sidearm thrower with a flair for quickly finding the open receiver, had only 10 completions but they were good for 274 yards and three touchdowns. He sent Halfback Nick Eddy on a 74-yard run with a screen pass and hit End Jack Snow for two scores. There was more, too. Halfback Bill Wolski led a 230-yard rush as Notre Dame routed the helpless Middies 40-0.
Army is lucky it does not have to play the Irish until 1965. Iowa State was almost more than it could handle. It took some last-ditch heroics by Rollie Stichweh and an end-zone pass-interference call to bail out the Cadets. Tailback Mark Hamilton scored from the one and Army won 9-7, but not until Iowa State's Ron Halda missed a 20-yard field goal in the waning seconds.
Pitt had a weird formation—what SYRACUSE Coach Ben Schwartzwalder calls a "garbage" offense—ready for the Orange. It was a spread with Quarterback Fred Mazurek as a wide flanker and Kenny Lucas at quarterback. It got the Panthers an early touchdown, but that was all. Behind the slick running of Floyd Little and Jim Nance, Syracuse had no trouble winning 21-6.
Usually PENN STATE'S Glenn Ressler plays middle guard on defense and makes so many tackles most people think he is a linebacker. Last Saturday Coach Rip Engle put him in at offensive center and twice he led Fullback Tom Urbanik over for touchdowns against Maryland. That, and Gerry Sanker's 38-yard field goal, whipped the Terps 17-9.
Villanova, undefeated, was dismayed to find itself behind Xavier 13-12. So the Wildcats shook loose Halfback Joe Santomauro for two touchdowns, then broke Fullback Tom Brown up the middle for 75 yards to whomp the visitors 31-13. RUTGERS won its fifth straight, over Boston U., 9-0.
There is no doubt about it now. The Princeton-Yale game November 14 will decide the Ivy League championship. PRINCE-TON'S Cosmo Iacavazzi scored twice as the Tigers beat Brown 14-0. YALE had more trouble with Dartmouth, but finally took the Indians 24-15. CORNELL and Columbia traded touchdowns like Christmas goodies in a 28-20 first half. Then Archie Roberts' (page 34) protection broke down and Cornell won 57-20. HARVARD trounced Penn 34-0.
