Unbeaten Seven
Expected to Roll
NEW YORK, Oct. 27 — (UP) —
Collegiate football’s seven titans
were expected tonight to roll along
unbeaten in weekend play as na
tional interest centered on the Rose
Bowl battle between California and
UCLA and the traditional show
down between S.M.U. and Texas.
The big seven—Notre Dame,
Army, Oklahoma, Baylor, Penn,
Cornell and California—all ruled
favorites to continue their march
among the undefeated and untied.
In the Pacific’s standout game,
California ruled a 12-point choice
over UCLA. While California had
pot been beaten this season, UCLA
still was undefeated in conference
play and those standings decide the
Rose Bowl team. Down in the
southwest, SMU was a three-point
favorite over Texas.
Among the undefeated and un
tied, Notre Dame was favored by
28 points over Navy; Army a pro
hibitiev peck over VMI; Cornell by
27 over Columbia; Oklahoma by 33
over Iowa State; Penn by 7V2 over
Pitt and Baylor by 7 M> over TCU.
Rice, tied with Baylor for the
southwest conference lead, moved
outside against Texas Tech as a
27-point pick. And the one other
conference clash sent Arkansas out
a 15-point choice over the Texas
Minnesota, beaten by Michi
gan, was expected to bounce back
against Purdue. The Gophers
were picked by 25 points. In
other Big Ten games, it was
Michigan over Illinois by 7 Vi 5
Ohio State <»* '2 over Northwest
ern, and Wisconsin seven over
Indiana. Iowa moved outside at a
s -veil point choice over Oregon.
Among the independents, Miclii
H in State was favored over Tem
In the big seven, with Oklaho
ma favored heavily, Missouri was
picked by 27 over Nebraska and
Ivinsas by I t over Kansas State.
While California-UCLA held the
coast spotlight, there were two
other conference clashes which saw
Oregon State and Washington
State rated even and Southern Cal
it rnia a 16 point pick over Wash
ington. Stanford moved outside as
a seven point favorite over Santa
The skyline six favored Wyoming
over Brigham Young and Colorado

Colorado and Arizona.

favored by five points, clashed in

but score points. The tough Hawk
line out-charged the Bruins con
sistently, and the midlanders roll
ed 245 yards from rushing. Oregon
gained 38 yards against UCLA.
Iowa's glaring weakness against
the California marauders was its
pass defense. The UCLANs struck
for long gains via the airlanes time
and again. But that was Iowa’s
first game of the year.
Oregon will take the field as un
derdog for the second consecutive
week, as the Iowans have been es
tablished one touchdown favorites.
Coach Jim Aiken plans to start
the same lineup that opened again
st Southern California. Woodley
Lewis might start for George Bell,
Aiken said, if Bell’s ankle continues
to bother him.
Oreogn’s Gentleman Jim, out to
gain a bit of intersectional prestige
for Oregon and the PCC, will throw
in two defensive patterns in an ef
fort to stop Iowa’s deadly short
pass attack.
The Ducks will probably rely on
the 4-4-2-1 most of the game, with
the Cleveland Brown 5-3-2-1 held
in reserve.
Both teams will operate out of a
“T,” with all indications pointing
to a high-scoring game with heavy
accent on passes and quick open
Oregon’s Gentleman Jim, out to
Iowa turf with a four win-two loss
record. Iowa has lost and won two.
Young Ducks, Vikings
'Up' for Game Today
Coach Joe Holland and his Van
' port Vikings roll into Eugene to
day to do battle with Bill Bower
man’s Frosh on Hayward field at 2
p.m. in the fourth game of a post
war series. The teams, distant rel
atives through the courtesy of the
State Board of Higher Education,
are both up for the game. Oregon
is eager to make up for last weeks’
disastrous trip to Seatle and the
Vikings are laying for the “big

many of whom are well acquainted
with Bowerman’s style of ball.
Among others, right half Chuck

offense last year and left half Gene

Defensive fullback Phil “Easy,
Sonny” Synder is a bulwark on de
fense and though he never played
ball in Oregon'Duckling colors be
fore, is reputed to be “savvy” to
the extent that no opponent can
keep a secret from him for more
than a quarter of play. Snyder is
reputed to be the fireball of the
team and his mates affectionately
refer to him as being “all muscle,
from the top of his head on down.”
Ducklings Dunham, Williams,
Sloan and Turner are set to show
the home folks once more the of
fensive speed and razzle-dazzle
that carried them to lopsided vic
tories over the Portland University
and Oregon State frosh teams prior
to the Washington debacle last Sat
urday. The Dunham to Williams
passing combo has proven a de
light to behold and the Vikings ap
pear headed for plenty of trouble
along the airlanes. The fancy catch
ing of Jake Williams has led to his
being tabbed as the “poor man s
Don Hutson.”
Hard scrimmages have been the
order of the day for both squads all
week in preparation for what both
coaches know will be a rough and
ready battle.
The time again—Hayward Field
at 2 p. m. today.
