The foot counted more than the yard in Southwest Conference victories last week. Texas A&M yielded more over-all yardage to Texas Christian in the wind and rain at College Station but won by a foot—Lloyd Taylor's conversion—7-6. SMU, outrushed by Rice, cashed in on Tommy Gentry's two conversions 14-13. The foot also played an important role through three-quarters of the only other conference game, but Arkansas finally overcame a 14-13 deficit to plaster Texas with a late surge for a 32-14 triumph.
Halfback Charlie Jackson gained 50 of SMU's 80 yards in their fourth-quarter comeback, but the longest gainer of the night was a pass from Charlie Arnold to End Willard Dewveall good for 69 yards and a touchdown. Baylor, Texas A&M and SMU now share the conference lead with 1-0 records.
In the Border Conference, Arizona state posted its second straight league win and fifth straight of the year, downing Hardin-Simmons 26-13. West Texas State shared the conference lead with Arizona State (2-0) by crushing New Mexico A&M 45-0 for its fifth straight win. Fullback Charlie Sanders scored three touchdowns as he ran for 211 yards.
Texas Western, also with two wins and no losses in conference play, dropped its first game in five outings to North Texas State , 13-6.
