View CoverRead All Articles View This Issue

?Notre Dame vs. Navy: This one captures the imagination. Not since 1945 have the Middies beaten the Irish. It is hard to go against the irrepressible Welsh and Co. but here goes...NOTRE DAME.

? Michigan vs. Iowa: Hawkeyes have manpower to win but unbeaten Wolverines continue to take the close ones. MICHIGAN.

? Georgia Tech vs. Duke: Once-beaten Engineers and Blue Devils collide. Better kicking and mobile defense favor home team. GEORGIA TECH.

? Minnesota vs. Southern California: Gophers rose to season's peak against Michigan Saturday. Trojans, except for Washington lapse, have been invincible. SOUTHERN CAL.

? Arkansas vs. Texas A&M: Bear Bryant's Aggie Sophs continue to surprise. Where does it end? Not here... TEXAS A&M.

? Washington vs. Oregon State: Only a tie with Stanford mars Huskies record while Beavers lone conference loss was to UCLA. Huskies still Rose Bowl hungry. WASHINGTON.

?Southern Methodist vs. Texas: Massive Mustangs now have won three in a row. Longhorns in and out. Out here...SMU.

?Holy Cross vs. Syracuse: Unbeaten Crusaders face strongest challenge. Suicide-scheduled Syracuse succumbed to Maryland after conquering Cadets. An upset here... SYRACUSE.

? Pittsburgh vs. Miami: Both teams have met the best. If Miami's morale has not suffered too much, Andy Gustafson could beat his alma mater. Trend of the times. Another upset... MIAMI.

? UCLA vs. California: The Bears from Berkeley can offer only token resistance. The call of the Rose Bowl can be heard clearly. Easily... UCLA.
