For Games of Saturday, Oct. 20

•Texas A&M vs. Texas Christian. Tough Aggies lied by hot Houston. Horned Frogs untied, undefeated and untested. Statistics, Swink and common sense say TCU. A lone, stubborn voice crying in the wilderness. TEXAS A&M.

•Southern California vs. Washington. First five or final five games, Trojans have most manpower on Coast. Huskies have potential. Still ... USC.

•Notre Dame vs. Michigan State. Defensively Irish disappointing. Spartans' offense and defense scintillating. Notre Dame will rise again but... MSU.

•Duke vs. Pittsburgh. Powerful Panthers, the pride of the East, rested and groomed. Blue Devils emerged from purgatory with win over Southern Methodist. If Jurgensen is ready, DUKE.

•Michigan vs. Northwestern. Rebirthed Wildcats will win another one but not with Wolverines. MICHIGAN.

•Wisconsin vs. Purdue. Battling Badgers are a threat but Boilermakers are bruising and Len Dawson devastating. PURDUE.

•Ohio State vs. Penn State. Nittany Lions loaded but Buckeyes better. Outside upset chance. OHIO STATE.

•Wyoming vs. Utah. Skyline summit at stake. Cowboys comers but Utes have arrived. UTAH.

•Syracuse vs. Army. Orangemen out to make it two in a row over Army. Fumbling Cadets come back. ARMY.
