Our prediction accuracy percentage has slipped a few points
v after last week’s upset-filled football weekend, but it's still
hanging on at a fairly respectable .750.
Five of the seven games we picked managed to turn out right
last oaturuay, iu unng me sea
. son total to 18 right, six wrong,
and one tied.
After a look at this Satur
day's schedule, we should re
tir-: from the forecasting field
for good,- but it’s too much fun.
We're still hoping for a perfect
weekend, but with games like
and Washington-WSC coming
up, what chance do we have?
Last week’s misses :
game, which the improved
s Huskies won in a breeze, 27-6,
was the most surprising on the coast. Bert LaBrucherie’s
mighty Bruins are finally on the way down, after a fairly good
season last year and the PCC title in 1946. ■ Wonder if the
Bruin student body and school publication will be after La
Brucherie’s scalp again this year?
A strong Washington line and fine play by Marsh Dallas
and Anse McCullough in the backfield contributed to the Bruin
defeat. UCLA’s next, game, against Stanford, should be a
Stanford-UCLA Game Attracts Attention
Santa Clara-Stanford—The Indians fumoled their way to
defeat by Santa Clara, 27-14. This wasn’t really an upset, since
the Broncos have a strong independent outfit, but 27-14 is
quite a margin. Our guess is that Stanford is saving its stuff
for a more important conference,.victory over UCLA this Sat
After a fair season last year, the Broncos are hitting the
big, time, with games ahead on their schedule against major
teams like SMU, Michigan State, and Nevada.
Jim Aiken’s Oregon Webfoots certainly stuck to their hot
cold cycle last week against Idaho. With everyone expecting
a one-sided Duck victory, a 15-8 score isn’t anything to boast
No excuses, but just a few ideas. Oregon didn’t really have
i to be “up” for the Vandal game. An upset-win for Idaho
wouldn’t do, but an Oregon victory, by seven points or seventy,
looks the same in conference standings. It’s been a long time
since the Webfoots have been on top.
When a team is really keyed for a game, they aren’t the
same, mentally or physically, for a while. With Southern Cal
coming up this Saturday, the Ducks will have to play perfect
ball to win.
And finally, it was Homecoming over in Moscow. That,
coupled with the fact that Oregon is Mr. Big in the Northwest,
gave the Vandals every right to put on a good show.
Aiken will undoubtedly put on the pressure this week in
practice, and if the cycle runs true, the Ducks are set to burn
up Multnomah stadium turf. . . .
California-Northwestern in Rose Bowl?
Things are shaping up, both here in the Pacific Coast Con
ference and back in the Big Nine. The California Bears, if they
keep up their present pace, probably have the inside track to
the Rose Bowl, with the Webfoots right behind. The North
western Wildcats look more like a Bowl team every week, and
should end up as number two team in the Big Nine.
Northwestern’s brilliant comeback against the Minnesota
Gophers Saturday should just about turn the tide. Even if
Michigan should whip the Wildcats, they couldn’t go to the
Rose Bowl twice in a row, so it’s a setup for Bob Voights’ Cats.
Ducklings Take Wild Game From UW Pups
Oregon’s Freshman football team squeezed out a close one
Friday night in Portland, beating the University of Washing
ton Pups 25-24. Frosh End Jerry Leslie booted the game’s
only extra point for the Duckling win.
Bill Bowermau must have a fairly potent squad, especially
in the backfield. Big Chuck Missfeldt, the javelin tosser from
Milwaukee, scored twice from his fullback post, and little
Tommy Edwards, left halfback from Klamath Falls, also
• scored two Duckling touchdowns.
Jim Calderwood, Frosh quarterback, seems to be a fine
- T-passer, and will bolster Aiken’s varsity next year.
The Webfoots Frosh have a big game October 23 in Cor
- vallis, with the OSC unsubsidized Rooks. This Civil War,
junior style, is an important game every year, but won t attract
many Oregon rooters because of Homecoming here on the
