Notre Dame provided most of the punch as it shredded California 28-6, but the Bears got in their licks during some last-period fisticuffs. That action seemed to enliven the Californians and they quickly stomped 97 yards for their only touchdown. Notre Dame Quarterback George Izo made his first appearance of the season, played two minutes, threw a 26-yard scoring pass and then rested his delicate leg as he watched the remainder of the bruising game from the bench.
Richie Mayo filled the air with 22 passes and his receivers pulled in 15 of them as the Air Force brushed aside Idaho 21-0. En route to their 14th straight decision without a loss, the Falcons also exhibited a productive ground attack built around Mike Quinlan and George Pupich.
Another air-minded team, Stanford, fell before Washington 10-0 in the first game ever played by the new Athletic Association of Western Universities. The Huskies' fine defenders stole four of Dick Norman's tosses to stall the Indians' offense.
Oregon exploited its new double wing, unleashed Willie West for three touchdown runs and trimmed San Jose State 35-12. The top three:
1. USC (3-0)
