JIM ROYER (71), rt: Strong blocker but has lapses and can be blocked offensively. Has acquired better reaction since Notre Dame gained through him.

BILL SMITH (81), re: Like Royer, has profited from opponents' traffic to the right side, and is now a good defensive end. Can also be pretty rough offensively.

MISSISSIPPI

John Vaught, a native of Texas and All-America guard at TCU in 1932, has been Rebel coach since 1947. The position is his as long as he improves on a record which now lists 56 Ole Miss wins, 20 losses and five ties.

EAGLE DAY, ALLEN MUIRHEAD, REX REED BOGGAN (see opposite page).

BOBBY McCOOL (42), fb: Runs wide well, but doesn't like to run up the middle. Has tendency to fumble when hit hard. Not a good defensive player.

JIMMY PATTON (24), lhb: Good all-around back who can carry well, receive passes and has speed to go all the way. On defense he is more than adequate.

BOBBY McKINNEY (53), c: Not as strong as he looks, but moves quickly. Likes to mix it up, especially on defense. Was tossed out of Memphis State game.

PAIGE COTHREN (40), fb: Subs for McCool, and they like to give him the ball when he is in. A hard runner, but not very fast. Also kicks off and converts.
