•Notre Dame vs. Texas. Touted Texas meets untested Notre Dame in the game of the week. The Longhorns took L.S.U. last week 20-6, but the Fighting Irish aren't the Bengal Tigers from the Bayou. NOTRE DAME.

•WISCONSIN vs. RICE. The Badgers are still unscathed after meeting Marquette and Michigan State. The Owls have outhit Florida and Cornell easily. Whooo, Whooo—WISCONSIN.

•Ohio State vs. Wisconsin. Both are undefeated, untied and, as yet, uninvited to the Rose Bowl. The winner could well take Greeley's advice and the Big Ten Championship. Stubbornly...WISCONSIN.

•Navy vs. Notre Dame. Last Saturday the Irish rested
while the Middies sank Pennsylvania. It will be a battle in Baltimore, but
South Bend has more fire power. NOTRE DAME
