?U.C.L.A. vs. Southern Cal. In September I said U.C.L.A. would win the P.C.C. championship, and Southern Cal. would go to the Rose Bowl. I repeat...U.C.L.A.

? Ohio State vs. Michigan. The Big Ten title and the Rose Bowl go with this TV game. Case history indicates the Wolverines will win, but... OHIO STATE.

? Harvard vs. Yale. This is the holy of holies. The Cantabs can be stubborn, but the Elis have speed and size. If they hold on to the ball... YALE.

? Iowa vs. Notre Dame. The Hawk-eyes want this one more than any other game. The fighting Irish are aware...NOTRE DAME.

? Southern Methodist vs. Baylor. The Mustangs mauled hitherto unbeaten Arkansas last week to remain in contention for the Cotton Bowl and the Southwest Conference championship. Baylor rested last Saturday. Hard to figure, but SOUTHERN METHODIST.

? Oklahoma vs. Nebraska. The Corn-huskers can still go to the Orange Bowl. The Sooners are superb. OKLAHOMA.

? Wisconsin vs. Minnesota. I picked the Golden Gophers as my surprise team of the Big Ten this year, but they have even surprised me. The Badgers are a fighting team with only two losses, however... MINNESOTA.

? Colorado vs. Kansas State. Colorado could prove the stumbling block for K-State's bowl bid... COLORADO.
