It s end-of-the-week football forecast time again, and back
we go to the Pacific Coast Conference. Seven contests are on tap
tomorrow for PCC member teams, and only three of these—Ore
gon-Idaho, WSC-Montana, and UCLA-Washington—are count
ing conference games.
Southern Cal and California entertain Rice and Wisconsin
in “big” intersectional battles, while the Oregon State Beavers
travel north to play .Portland ;

Washington Schools Due for a Split
WASHINGTON STATE vs. MONTANA — Another
Homecoming- game, this time over in Missoula. The Cougars,
after tripping Stanford last week, will be out for win number
WASHINGTON vs. UCLA—This one will be played in
Seattle, and might turn into one of the best Coast games. The
Bruins should win by a touchdown, but watch the passing of
Husky Anse McCullough.
USC vs. RICE—Toss a coin or consult your favorite crystal
ball. Either way, it’s going to be close. Some fine teams come
from the Southwest Conference, but we’ll take the Trojans by
six or seven.
Another Big Nine Team Should Fall
CALIFORNIA vs. WISCONSIN—Pappy Waldorf’s Gold
en Bears get another chance to teach a Big Nine team how to
play .football. Cal’s bowl hopes would be hurt by a Wisconsin
win, but it shouldn’t happen, even to a California team. The
Bears in a close victory.
STANFORD vs. SANTA CLARA—Stanford has been
treated rather roughly by PCC teams this season, and will be
out to axe a strong Santa Clara squad. They could be surprised,
but we think the Indians rate the nod.
There they are, and all we can do is hope ....
Statistics Show Oregon Has a Team
Complete statistics covering Oregon’s performance in three
games have been released, and they reveal some interesting
The Ducks have gained 776 yards rushing this season,
compared to 405 yards for the opponents. That’s quite a mar
gin, considering Jim Aiken’s team has been tabbed as a passing
Yardage figures from passing are more nearly even, with
357 for Oregon and 342 for the opponents. Total net yardage
from rushing and passing favors the Webfoots 1,052 to 660.
That’s more than 350 yards per game, on the average.
Individual statistics show that Webfoots backs have di
vided the offensive load evenly. Johnny McKay leads in rush
ing with a net of 231 yards, 6.6 yards per try. George Bell is
right behind McKay with 170 net yards and a 4.1 average.
Bell has been the offensive workhorse, carrying the ball 42
Bob Sanders and Bob Easter follow on the list, with 110 and
67 yards respectively. Easter has carried only four times, so he
has the highest per-carrv average, 16.8.
Norm VTan Brocklin is all alone in the passing department,
completing 25 in 47 attempts for 333 yards. He has lost 3o from
scrimmage, so has an even net of 300.
McKay also tops the pass receiving column, with seven
passes good for 144 yards. Dan Garza and Sanders follow with
six catches apiece, for 54 and 47 yards. Dick \\ ilkins has re
ceived three times for 46 yards ....
