Southwest Conference teams won six of seven games in a display of strength unequaled by any other area of the country. Southern Methodist led the Texas parade with its magnificent 19-13 upset over Notre Dame, consummated in the final 100 seconds of play when Mustang Quarterback Charlie Arnold called for the old Statue of Liberty play, faded back for a pass and then fed the ball to Halfback Lon Slaughter, who scampered 14 yards for the winning touchdown.
Southern California's C. R. Roberts scored on runs of 73, 51 and 74 yards to sink Texas 44-20, for the SWC's only loss.
Halfback Ken Wineberg scored three times for Texas Christian, once on an exciting 80-yard journey, as the Horned Frogs drubbed Kansas 32-0. Texas A&M brushed Villanova aside 19-0; Rice scored on three passes to beat Alabama 20-13, and Arkansas steamrollered Hardin-Simmons 21-6, despite a 24-for-34 passing record turned in by the Cowboys.
In the Big Seven Conference Nebraska manhandled South Dakota 34-6, and managed to break Halfback Bill Hawkins loose for a 76-yard run as part of the stampede. West Coast opposition proved too much for Colorado and Missouri, however, as Oregon crushed the former 35-0 and Oregon State took the latter 19-13. Sam Wesley featured in the Oregon State attack, breaking loose for a 62-yard touchdown and receiving a pair of passes good for 72 yards.
