Boston U. vs. Syracuse
That Syracuse power is enough to frighten anybody, and the Orangemen want to look good on the way to the Cotton Bowl. This is just too much football team for Boston U. SYRACUSE.
Pitt vs. Penn State
I doubt that the Pitt line can stop Richie Lucas and Penn State. The Nittany Lions are eager to impress and will be at their best. PENN STATE.
Yale vs. Harvard
The Big Three title is at stake, and Yale's Tom Singleton, operating behind the tenacious Eli line, will outclass Harvard's Charlie Ravenel. I'll pick YALE.
Miami vs. Michigan State
Both have picked up momentum lately, and Miami's Fran Curci and State's Dean Look will make it a passing duel. However, the Spartans are stronger in the line. MICHIGAN STATE.
Clemson vs. Wake Forest
Clemson had its letdown against Maryland, and this game may decide the Atlantic Coast title. Wake Forest's defense has been spotty and may not be able to contain Harvey White. CLEMSON.
Illinois vs. Northwestern
This is Coach Ray Eliot's last game, and he will have the Illini fired up. Northwestern has been making too many mistakes, and I have a hunch the Illinois line will handle Ron Burton. ILLINOIS.
USC vs. UCLA
A West Coast natural between two good defensive teams. But UCLA lacks a passer, and the powerful USC line can concentrate on the runners. USC.
Washington vs. Washington State
Washington is just too big, too fast and too numerous for State. Quarterback Bob Schloredt gives the Huskies the better offense. WASHINGTON.
Oregon vs. Oregon State
Oregon State hasn't looked good against wide stuff, and Oregon's Willie West loves to run the ends. State can't match Dave Grosz's passing, either. OREGON.
Baylor vs. SMU
Don Meredith continues as one of the nation's best quarterbacks, but passing alone doesn't win games. Baylor has improved, and I feel one of those Southwest Conference upsets is in the making. BAYLOR.
