View CoverRead All Articles View This Issue

? Ohio State vs. Wisconsin. Both are undefeated, untied and, as yet, uninvited to the Rose Bowl. The winner could well take Greeley's advice and the Big Ten Championship. Stubbornly... WISCONSIN.

? Arkansas vs. Mississippi. Bowden Wyatt has worked miracles with the Razorbacks to keep them undefeated. The Rebels have run riot over mediocre opposition and can go undefeated by winning this one. So... MISSISSIPPI.

?Southern Cal. vs. California. The smell of Roses grows sweeter to the Trojans. The waft is fainter at. Berkeley. Could be an upset but—SOUTHERN CAL.

? Michigan State vs. Purdue. The Spartans lost a heartbreaker to Notre Dame. The Boilermakers were disrupted by Wisconsin's usual second-half surge. Both teams should bounce back. But—MICHIGAN STATE.

?Rice vs. Texas. Still potentially the two strongest teams in the Southwest Conference. Texas depth over Moegle and Rice... TEXAS.

? Columbia vs. Army. Lou Little got his upset over Harvard and has only a ghost of a chance against Army. The Cadets surprised Duke. Easily...ARMY.

? Michigan vs. Minnesota. In September I picked the Golden Gophers to win their first three games. Michigan could be their fifth. MINNESOTA.

? Alabama vs. Miss. State. Don't underrate this Alabama team. The Maroons are scrappy but thin. ALABAMA.

? Colorado vs. Nebraska. Colorado's backs lead the nation in offense. The Cornhuskers are improving but not enough... COLORADO.

? Oklahoma vs. Kansas State. Kansas bled last week. Kansas State will be tougher but still tender... OKLAHOMA.
