Four In The News
The Bowls
  • A rich table featuring the best of college football is set for January 2. But the nation's televiewers will have a problem: which game to tune in on?

  • Washington, the best of the West, meets the head-on power of the nation's top team, Minnesota. The runs will be tricky, the passes fancy, but defense will win this game. CBS-TV, 4:45 p.m., E.S.T.

  • There will be plenty of hooting and hollering at New Orleans when Rice's conservative Owls match their solid ball-control game against the bright attack of Ole Miss's Rebels. NBC-TV, 1:45 p.m., E.S.T.

  • At Miami all eyes will be on a squirmy little fellow named Joe Bellino, who will lead a spirited Navy team against the powerful, tough-defending Tigers from Missouri. CBS-TV, 12:45 p.m., E.S.T.

  • Duke's sharp passing and superior running will be matched against an adamant Arkansas defense that allowed an average of less than six points a game during the regular season. CBS-TV, 3:30 p.m., E.S.T.
