Oklahoma A & M, under J. B. Whitworth, should win this far-flung championship, and maybe, someday, upset Oklahoma. Fred Meyers, erstwhile West Point transfer, is expected to do; a great job at quarterback.
Houston. Young and powerful, the Texans should be another fine team this year despite the loss of Quarterback Bobby Clatterbuck. Jimmy Dickey is a hot junior college replacement. The best runner is Kennie Stegall with a 1953 average of 6.9 yards per try.
Detroit. The co-champions of last year with A & M will again be in the running. Outstanding letterman is Bob Burgmeier, last year's high scorer in the conference.
