CRUCIAL SATURDAY FOR FOUR TOP TEAMS SMU-Texas, Cal-Wash Contests May Provide Host Bowl Clubs By ED CORRIGAX .' NEW YORK, Nov. 3. (/P)--This will be -"C". for.'Crucial. Saturday for four of the top teams in'the country'because the two winners could find themselves playing host in the Cotton and Rose Bowls; At Austin,-. Tex., the No. 1 rated team in the weekly Associated Press poll, Southern Methodist, takes on Texas. The victor i "/?££$" BAGNELL. almost sure to go on to the South west conference title arid with i the glory of the Cotton Bowl. At Seattle, it will be "Washingto and -California, battling tooth an nail in the Pacific Coast conferenc race. But the road to the Rose Bou will not be easy, for the winner. I Howfe Odell's Washington, ·win, they will have to account fo Southern California. Should Cab fornia come out on top, it : will haV' to get past UCLA and Stanford. Mustangs Favored Although Southern Methodist ha been tabbed a one-touchdown favorite in the early line, the odds makers are out on a very shakj limb. Form means little in th Southwest conference even when one team is supposed to win b; seven touchdowns. This one could go either way. There's another big one on tap in Philadelphia where Army meets Penn. The Cadets, No. 2 team in the country, naturally will be fav ored, but Penn has an annoying habit of playing its best game against Army. Look at the scores for the past three years: 1947, Army 7 Perm 7; 1948; Army 26 .Penn 20 (in the last minute); 19-19, Armj 14 Penn 13. The Cadets have no sinecure. While California and Washington are slugging it out, UCLA will be hoping for a tie which could vault the Uclans into the running. They'll be playing Oregon State. In other Pacific Coast clashes,' Stanford takes on Southern California and Oregon plays Washington State. Easy Day Ahead The other powers apparently are lieaded for a relatively easy day. Oklahoma, No, 3, faces Colorado and ·figures to run its -winning skein to 27. Ohio State, No. 4, plays a Big Ten .game wKh Northwestern, while ·Kentucky,- No. 5, takes'on Florida. Although It probably will. not havt any bearing on the Big Ten race, the: Illinois-Michigan game at Ann Arbor will have the distinction of drawing the day's biggest crowd ·--about 92,000. Some 65,000 will be on hand .for the SMU-Texas game,. while another 68,000 will yrltness the Army-Penn affair. ' -If Kentucky does the expected and.beats' Florida, it -would be taking another · big step toward- the Southeastern conference championship. M7b.Vf only other 'team with a chance is Georgia, which is favored ever Alabama. In other Southeastern " games, Mississippi plays Lou- telana State and Mississippi State. tackles Auburn. .-'.Notre Dame, wh'ich,has been talc- Ing Its =· lumps, plays Navy, and Although they 'have come to make for-'risky betting, the Irish prob- mbly will be favored in their battle *f grid'has-beens--at least a» far M'this year's business is concerned. Heavy Choice ; O t h e r Southwest conference fctmes include 'Arkansas-Texas A and M, and Baylor Texas-Christian. Missouri ;of .the Big Seven plays Nebraska, Kansas State - clashes with Iowa State and Oklahoma A 'and M goes against Tulsa. Clemson's undefeated Southern Conference powerhouse will be favored heavily over Duquesne, iwhile Maryland plays George Washington and Duke goes into its game with Georgia Tech as the choice. Tonight, Miami entertains Georgetown and Marquette goes to South Carolina. Villanova is at Detroit, Hardin-Simmons at Loyola and yanderbilt at Chattanooga. . Other major Saturday games Include: · i Arizona at New Mexico, Brown »t Rutgers, Bradley at Drake, Cornell at Columbia, Dartmouth at Yale, Holy Cross at Harvard, Iowa at Minnesota, Indiana at Michigan State, Kansas at Utah, North Carolina at Tennessee, Purdue at Wisconsin, Syracuse at Lafayette, Southern California at Stanford, Texas Tech at Rice, Virginia at the Citadel, VPI at Washington and Lee and William and 'Mary at Boston U.
