?Penn state—Army. Nittany Lions met Quaker troubles, while Army romped over Cornhuskers. Cadet jinx may hold, even at University Park. Still, PENN STATE.

?Rice—Stanford. Owls had week off while Indians showed not only passes but excellent running game in convincing win over Wildcats. Convinced: STANFORD.

?Iowa-Washington State. Cougars have shown well in two opening wins. However, Hawkeyes have too much. Power over passes. IOWA.

?Columbia—Princeton. The Donellis, p�re et fils, debuted brilliantly in beating favored Brown. Tigers unimpressive in opener. Still, PRINCETON.

?Minnesota—Purdue. Boilermakers have potential to bounce back but this is the year of the Golden Gophers; maybe all the way. MINNESOTA.

?Arkansas—Texas Christian. Horned Frogs, a shadow of former greatness, surprised Buckeyes. Steady and competent Razorbacks alerted. ARKANSAS.

?Oklahoma—Iowa state. Single-wing Cyclones have been surprising, but the honeymoon is over. Sooners stretch string to 42. OKLAHOMA.

?Miami—Baylor. Hurricanes have regrouped forces with week layoff after Houston loss. Big Bears have not approached potential in two opening wins. Nonetheless, BAYLOR.

?North Carolina—Navy. Tarheels came roaring back after opening loss to N.C State. Middies impressive each outing. NAVY.

?Northwestern—Oregon State. Wildcats disappointing in Stanford debacle. Will show better this Saturday, but Beavers have been going great. OREGON STATE.
