Miami ( Ohio) 7, Bowl. Green 7
Texas A&M found fog and cold to its liking and turned the well-ballyhooed ground-power duel with Arkansas into a 27-0 rout. A&M, now 3-0 in the Southwest Conference, will almost surely play host at this year's Cotton Bowl game if the NCAA lets them off probation when the case is considered this month. SMU, unbeaten in SWC play, thanks to two extra-point conversions in its two games, scored 20 points in the first half against an inept Texas eleven, then had to hold on in the last half to withstand a fired-up 19-point assault by the Longhorns.
TCU, hoping to see A&M tripped up, knocked off Baylor 7-6 on a fourth-quarter touchdown march. Rice scored three times on passes and once on the ground to throttle visiting Utah 27-0 as End Buddy Dial caught five passes.
In the Border Conference, Texas Western posted double digits in each quarter to rout Hardin-Simmons 51-13. West Texas State, riding a five-game winning streak (2-0 in conference play), was tripped by Arizona 20-13, while Arizona State went outside the league to bedevil San Diego State 61-0 for its seventh straight.

Montana state College , which had already clinched the Rocky Mountain title, walloped rival Montana University, their Skyline neighbor, 33-14.
