"I do know that there will be no franchises granted at Mexico City if .we do decide to expand because we cannot move that fast.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS For the first time in a quarter of a century, the Texas-Texas A&M game—oldest rivalry in the Southwest—may be the deciding issue in a hectic and upsetting football race. Texas and A&M each must beat old and bitter foes this week to make such a climax possible but they will be favored to do so. If Texas licks Texas Christian at Austin and Texas A&M whips Rice at Houston Saturday, then the chips all will be on the line at College Station Thanksgiving Day and the Southwest Conference champion will emerge to become the host team in the Cotton Bowl. Texas Christian has become the key that unlocks the door to such a showdown. The Horned Frogs arose in their jubilation over having broken an eight-game losing streak by clouting Baylor to championship. On the other hand, should A&M lose to Rice and Texas floor Texas Christian, then Texas would be in the driver's seal and would clinch at least a tie for the championship. Texas lashed Baylor 24-0 last week to pull into a deadlock for the lead with the idle Aggies.
