•Army vs. Penn State. Nittany Lions, supposedly strong, routed a good Boston U. team Saturday 35-0. Could be a corker against careening cadets if eyes are set toward Kramer and Michigan. Still...ARMY.

•Baylor vs. Maryland. Tatum's "Terrible Terps," having disposed of West Coast Bruins, safari to Waco for a shot at the Bears. Baylor could ambush. But...MARYLAND.

•Southern Cal. vs. Texas (Friday night). Trojans with two conference wins under their belt grow taller each outing. Longhorns in and out. Out here. SOUTHERN CAL.

•Arkansas vs. Texas Christian. The new "pigeon-toed" look at Arkansas will not have, enough fire power to fight off the improved Horned Frogs. TCU.

•Michigan vs. Michigan State. Battle of the multiple offensives, as the not so "green" Spartans, fresh from an easy victory over Indiana, invade Ann Arbor. MICHIGAN.

•Oklahoma vs. Pittsburgh. The Sooners, sluggish in their 13-6 win over North Carolina, don't have two bad weeks in a row. OKLAHOMA.

•Stanford vs. Ohio State. The Buckeyes received surprisingly strong opposition from about-face Nebraska but Hopalong Cassady will ride roughshod again. OHIO STATE.

•Notre Dame vs. Indiana. Notre Dame decisively defeated a luckless SMU team 17-0 and everything seems natural once again. NOTRE DAME.

•Princeton vs. Columbia. Princeton's powerful and tricky single wing is too much, even for crafty Lou Little's Lions. PRINCETON.
