View CoverRead All Articles View This Issue

? Oklahoma vs. Colorado: Not since 1952 have the Sooners even suffered a tie in the Big Seven and Colorado did it. OKLAHOMA.

? Syracuse vs. Maryland: The boys from Syracuse stunned and shellacked a supposedly superior cadet team Saturday at West Point. But Tatum's Terps are trampling all opposition, big and small. MARYLAND.

?Duke vs. Pittsburgh: Undefeated Blue Devils beat Buckeyes Saturday with second-half surge. Pitt's Panther is still dangerous. However—DUKE.

? Wisconsin vs. Ohio State: Both still have clean conference records. Here I go again... WISCONSIN.

? Yale vs. Colgate: The Red Raiders from the Chenango Valley meet superior enemy force in unbeaten Elis... YALE.

? Purdue vs. Notre Dame: It could have been the week of the upset for the Boilermakers, had not Notre Dame proven its mortality in loss to Michigan State. Believing the Irish will come back fighting...NOTRE DAME.

? UCLA vs. Iowa (Friday night): Sanders' balanced single-wing attack has swept all opposition since Maryland loss. Evashevski's multiple offense has latent strength. None the less—UCLA.

? Michigan State vs. Illinois: Surprising Spartans have come all the way back. Illinois is coming—but not far enough... MICHIGAN STATE.

? Texas A&M vs. Baylor: Both these teams bumped unbeaten foes Saturday. Aggies' soph-laden squad has been sensational since opening loss to UCLA, while Bears have been beaten only by Maryland. A problem but, BAYLOR.

? Washington vs. Stanford: Unpredictable Indians' second half surge fell short against UCLA last Saturday. The Huskies must have this one... WASHINGTON.
