    In a California deer hunt anything goes, but anything doesn't if the quarry is bear. A goose is cooked in Nebraska, the whooper is debated in Washington, in Oregon it rains elk

HICKMAN'S HUNCHES

For games of Saturday, Nov. 10

•Georgia Tech vs. Tennessee. Wyatt's wily Vols will rock, sock and roll, but Johnny (Drum) Majors' condition uncertain. Yellow Jackets' superior depth and experience should be the difference. GEORGIA TECH.

•Minnesota vs. Iowa. TV game of the week. Warmath winning with minimum of mistakes. Gophers feature goal-line stands and field goals. Next goal Rose Bowl. MINNESOTA.

•Stanford vs. Oregon State. Winner will be West Coast Rose Bowl representative. Easy to figure. Indians beat USC who beat Beavers. Beavers beat UCLA who beat Indians. A wavering vote for Prothro's surprising, single-wing sophomores. OREGON STATE.

•Southern Methodist vs. Texas A&M. Spirited Mustangs still unbroken in SWC rodeo. Have ridden with Aggies all the way. TEXAS A&M.

•Michigan vs. Illinois. As Michigan State knows, the Illini can beat any team. Wolverines well aware. Sticking with steadier team. MICHIGAN.

•Missouri vs. Colorado. It is my belief the Buffaloes are bound for Miami and the Orange Bowl. COLORADO.

•Michigan State vs. Purdue. Spartans bounced back from Illini upheaval like their namesakes. Boilermakers' big line and indomitable Dawson are dangerous. But Spartans may still be the best in the country. MICHIGAN STATE.

•Duke vs. Navy. Erdelatz' embryonic ensigns had too much fire power for the foundering Fighting Irish. But Blue Devils in Durham showed long expected potential in Tech game. I'm stubborn. An upset. DUKE.
