Several times during that span the Bears fooled the experts by finishing in the second division when it was predicted that they would take it all. Six times. Including the last two seasons, Baylor confused the experts by finishing second after being labeled a second division outfit. This season, with fewer letter- t — men than eight of the ten teams on their schedule, the Bruins generally are rated tri-favorites along with the Texas Aggies and the Texas Long horns. At the risk of being embarrassed again in December, the experts list these factors in predicting the bears will bite hard and often this autumn: 1. Baylor has one of the best all-purpose T-format ton quarterback in college football in Larry .bell. Aside from being a top passer and punter, he runs well, fakes cleverly and keeps the defense off-balance with his thinking. 2. Baylor is not a one-man team. It has pair of terrific ends in Stan Williams and Harold Riley; three fine tackles In Ken Casner, Steve Dowden and Luke Welch; a good linebacker In Gale Galloway, and two nifty guards in Walter Bates nd Bill Athey. From the 1950 Baylor team that •as the talk of the circuit in lovembcr. Head Coach George aucr has 16 lettermen. They are airly well distributed except at e halfbacks. Green Halfbacks At halfbacks, Sauer must build hiefly from sophomores like Jerry Joody, Mickey ^Sullivan. Charley ones and Bill Don Sherman. His xperienced halfbacks include let- ermen Don Carpenter, offensive eft halt; letterman Glen Jones, iefcnsive right half, and squad man ack Schleuming, strong candidate or offensive righthalf. It still is too early to list even probable starting offensive and de- "rnsive lineups for the Bears' Sept. 22 opener with University of Houson. But the sophs with the best chance of making the varsity squad appear to be Ronald Black, tall, rugged defensive end from Corpus DhrisU; rollbacks Coody nnd Jones* Tackle Robert Knowles, 22G-pounc product; quarterback Davrn- poi I, also due to see some service defensive halfback, and fuil- back Talbcrt. At this time, Baylor dors no' nave the depth ordinarily required of a championship team. The Bruins will be deep enough only il the sophs and squadmen come through. Baylor does not meet as strong outside teams as some of the other con Terence members, yet the Bruins' schedule may prove their down- Boeton's third-place Red Sox. hot on the heels of the leaders for monts, saw their pennant hopes all but shattered yesterday when the seventh-place Athletics drubbed them in a doubleheader, 10-4 and 3-2, The double defeat dropped the Red Sox five and a half games behind the Yankees and Indians, The Sox have 20 games remaining to 20 for the Yankees and 15 for the Indians. Fortunately, Boston has no more games with the Athletic*; ^ho are scheduled to face the Indians two more times and the Yankees once. The Yankees increased their slim first-place margin to four percentage points over the Tribe by sweeping a pair from Washington, T-5 and 2-0. Cleveland also won, 4-3, from the St. Louis Browns. The Indians have won two more games than the Yankees, but they've also lost two more. The New York Giants' kept their nickering pennant hopes alive in the National League race, defeating the Brooklyn Dodgers, 2-1, 10 climb back within five and a half games the lead. The St. Louis' Cardinals entrenched their hold on third place with a pair of triumphs over Pittsburgh, 2-1 in 10 innings) and 7-4. Braves Whip 1'hils Boston's Braves trounced Philadelphia's Phils twice in their battle for fourth place, 5-4 and 4-1, Chicago's Cubs emerged from the? cellar, splitting a doubleheader with Cincinnati. The Reds won the second game, 7-0, after the Cubs had captured the opener, 7-3. ' Chicago's White Sox edged out Detroit, 4-3. in a game that haa no bearing on the American League race. The Red Sox, who haci previously whipped the A's 13 times in 2C meetings, were beaten with thei own weapon—the home run. A three-run * homer by Eddie Joos snapped a -1-4 tic and sparked the A's to a six-run eighth Inning tha ivon the opener. Gus Zernial's 30th circuit clou with a mate aboard, and ana the casters know their business. This was indicated today in a pre-season, nationwide Associated Press poll calling upon the press box experts to choose the top 10 teams for the 1951 pigskin parade. - First, let it be noted the poll put Tennessee on top—and more or less on the spot—as the No. 1 outfit. Gen. Bob Ncyland's Volunteers got n overwhelming BO first place votes •ut of 115 cast, and a total of 923 points. This automatically projected Tennessee as the Southeastern Conference champion, replacing the 1950 winner, Kentucky. Ohio State is figured as the new i? Ten champion, by an overwhelming point total, with Mary- find rated the team of championship calibre In the Southern Conference and Tex^s A. and M. the new titleholder in the Southwest clrcut. Michigan won the Big Ten last year, white Washington and Lee took the Southern, and Texas the Southwest crown. The 1950 conference winners fltf- uied to repeat are Oklahoma, the nation's No. 1 team, last fall, in the Big Seven; Princeton in the Ivy League: California out In the Pacific Coast; Tulsa in the Missouri Valley loop, and Wyoming in the Skyline Six. Michigan State. wUVi 18 first place votes and a total of 728 points, got the nod as the top independent team in the land. The Spartans were rated No. 2 in the first ten. The ID50 poll closed with Army in the No. 2 spot, and the recognized leader among the independent outfits. ..Army, Us ranks riddled by loss homer by Dave philley accounted for 'all of Philadelphia's runs fn the nightcap. Little Bobby Shantz hurled a three-hitter to win his loth game and give the A's their &weep of a doubleheader—high for the majors. The home run also played • major role in the Yankees' double win over the Senators. They unloosed five four-baggers for all but one of their runs in th« first game. Yogi Berra, who hit one of those, also homered in the nightcap to help vlc.Raschl register his 18th victory. The game was halted after five and a half innings because of larkness. Jim He'gan was the hitting star or the Indians as they overcame early 3-0 deficit and won In he ninth Inning. The big catcher, vho earlier had driven in a run, ipened the ninth with a single, his .hlrd hit. He moved to third on two bunts and scored on Bob A Vila's ong fly. Mike Garcia, who hurled .he last two Innings, picked up his 19th triumph. Robinson Rig Gun Eddie Robinson batted In three tins with his 27th home run and i fifth-inning double to help Saul Rogovin, White Sox righthander, _ rack up his 12th victors'. A fourth-Inning home run by Monte irvin with one man on base was all Sal Maglie needed to whip the Dodgers as the New York right- hander became the first National Leaguer to record 20 victories. Cleveland's Bob Feller, with 22, is the only other big leaguer with 20 or more wins. ; Wally Westlake batted in four runs with a single and homer to help the Cards hand his former Pittsburgh mates the second beating of the day. A tenth-inning sinkle by Solly Hemus, followed by Red Schoendlenst's double, won the opener. Home runs by Bobby Usher and Ted Kluszewskj drove in five Cincinnati runs as Herm Wehmeler pitched six-hit shutout ball over the Cubs, who whipped Ewell Black well in the opener behind Rookie Bob Kelly.

The former Brooklyn star led Atlanta to the pennant hLs lirst year — ISM— but the Southern Association club dropped to the second division this season.

He drove in four of the Cardinal runs on a first inning single and a two- run homer. Westlake had gone hitless 23 straight times until yesterday. The homer, his first since Aug. 13. was his twenty-first of the season. The Cleveland Indians showed yesterday they were made of the stuff from which come champions. Off to a three-run handicap in the first Inning with the Browns in game at St. Louis, the Indians refused to accept defeat from the tailenders and won 4-3.
