Texas Christian 2, Holy Cross and Vandcrbilt 1 each). The sec-saw race for runner-up honors between Alabama and Pittsburgh, with the Crimson Tide regaining the edge, has attracted close attention. Each has an eye on the Rose Bowl. Pitts looks to have the tougher November path, with Notre Dame, Nebraska and Duke among four remaining opponents. Alabama must hurdle Tulane. Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt to keep its slate clean. Notre Dame, which vaulted from nowhere to twelfth place in tile week's ranking following stirring triumphs over the Navy and Minnesota, will entertain the Panthers Saturday in the country's headline match. There is no less interest in this clash because it winds up the Pitt-Notrc Dame series, al least for the time being. Unbeaten Baylor, still the Southwest sensation, advanced two notches in the latest rankig list. Fordham's decisive victory over North Carolina propelled the undefeated Rams from tenth to fifth place. Nebraska was elevated from eleventh to sixth ;t new "high" for the Huskers following triumph over Indiana. Although we were always on the run. it was pretty good while it lasted.
