Haye.5 was talking about Tennessee and Georgia Tech the hottest prospects for visiting team. As of now Terns Christian University leads the race by n half tame, llaylor Is the only undefeated team but It was tied by Texas A&M 21-21 last week. That left TCU ujidf.pnted leader because TCU has won its two conference grimes. TCU Has Tough Row But Terns Christian would appear to have the toughest row of all the teams left in the championship running. The Horned Progs have to play Baylor and Texas- two of the best bets for the title— away from home. Rice, which "is in as good shape ns Texas, looks bel- ter off, having three of Its four remaining games at home—Arkansas. Texas A&M and Baylor. But there's no way to figure what this screwball league will do. The way the gnmcs h/tve come out thus far is .enough to make the forecasters pull their hah-—if they have nny left. Home games are drawing AD average of 33,000 fans and they're picking up. From now on the average will be much higher, for instance, Saturday Southern Methodist expects to pull 16,000 tor its game with Texas at Dallas. Baylor looks for 40,000 to -/alert it against Texas Christian at Waco. And all those folks will be there until the last gun fires, maybe later. They just don't want to miss anything.
