?Army-Navy. TV Game of the Week. Two direct opposites in offensive operations. Cadets are a running team, as have been all Blaik-coached squads of the past. Midshipmen, with pro-minded Erdelatz at the helm, stress passing game in all its phases. Defensively, Middies have been more consistent than Cadets. NAVY.
?Rice-Baylor. Bears expected to finish at or near the top but find themselves on the bottom. Owls unnoticed until win over Texas A&M. Going with the Owls and their brilliant quarterback, King Hill. RICE.
? Alabama - Auburn. "Although we are not now that strength which in the old days moved earth and heaven" the once-mighty Crimson Tide will make a last-ditch effort to ruin the record of a hated enemy. AUBURN.
?Holy Cross - Boston College. Eagles after opening one-sided loss to Navy have gone clean, and there is a strong possibility that a win over Holy Cross will bring a bowl bid. Crusaders' record not as impressive, but schedule has been tougher. HOLY CROSS.
? Miami-Florida. This has been a rebuilding year for the Hurricanes, and they have taken their lumps. The Gators are enjoying their best season in several years, and a win over Miami might put them in the Gator Bowl. Incentive, strength and more consistent play says... FLORIDA.
? North Carolina - Virginia. Tatum's Tar Heels rose up and smote the Blue Devils a well-remembered blow in Durham. Cavaliers have had only a so-so season but could catch Carolina still in the middle of a victory parade. Nonetheless... NORTH CAROLINA.
? Oklahoma - Oklahoma State. The Aggies would like nothing better than adding insult to injury by a win over the Sooners whose new winning streak now stands at one. May be much closer than you would think, but the Sooners should make it two in a row... OKLAHOMA.
Notre Dame over Southern California
