THE DOPE: The Buffaloes, devotees of single-wing power along the ground in the past, may go aloft, necessity again serving as the mother of invention. With line strength only at end and with two passers in Dick Hyson and Boyd Dowler, who were spectacular in spring training, Coach Dallas Ward may have to concede the middle of the road to his opponents. The team speed is below average, and there is a serious lack of interior line reserves. According to Ward: "We're going to depend on several sophomores for starting and reserve line strength, and that always makes your chances highly problematical."
