PAGE STIC BLYTHEVruJJ (AKR.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1940 Gafego To Gallop Again Rice-Or : S.M.U. Will Fill Vacancy In Dallas Cotton Bowl NEW YORK. Dec. 7 (UP)—Th? . \940 football season closes officially today and the outcome of one • :arn e—Rice-Southern Methodist at -Houston. Tex.—will decide who Bills'the, last vacancy in the New Year's Day bowl lineup. Eleven "games will be played from coast to coast but only six are of major-league variety—Rice- SMU, Southern California-Notre Dame at Los Angeles; Citadel- South Carolina at Charleston, S. C.. Florida-Texas. Gainesville. Fla.. Aiiburn-Villanova, M o n t g o m e ry Ga., and San Francisco-Texas Tech, San Francisco. The "game at Houston will deckK •.vho'll face Fordhom in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas and also determine whether the Texas Aggies are going to break precedent and become the first team in histqry to win (.he Southwest conference title two years in succession. The Aggies already have completed their season and have won five and lost one in conference competition. Rice and S. M. U. are bracketed next with four and one. Should these teams play to a tie today, then the Aggies get the title. Should the game go to a decision, then the winner ties for the title. If the Aggies win the championship outright, they will -get the Cotton Bowl bid. If-the race ends in a tie. then the bowl bid will be decided by conference votes. If it is the Aggies, then the cast according to an early line issued today by one of the section's leading gridiron betting commissioners probably will be on the short end of the bowl betting. The commissioner said that the Aggies probably would be established as early favorites at odds of around 7 or 8-to 5. If it's S.M.U or Rice, then ' the opening price ' probably-will be 6 to 5, take yoiu choice. ; / The commissioner quoted n price oh the Sun Bowl game be 'tween Temple Teachers and Wes.t em Reserve because no one hdc yet asked for a bet and he sai that the east probably will be fav ored over the west in the all-sta game at San Francisco but was no quoting any price until the pei sonnel of the respective teams completed. ' The longest opening odds wer quoted on the Rose Bowl. If yo want to .bet Nebraska, you can g 2 to 1 .''but if you want, to pla Stanford you. must lay 12 to 5. That's so the commissioners can come out ahead no matter who wins. In the Orange Bowl, Mississippi State is a 17-10 favorite if you want to play Georgetown. If you bet the; other way, you must lay 19-10.; 4-In the Sugar Bowl, pairing unbeaten and untied Tennessee and Boston College in the only New Year's -game featuring perfect record elevens, the Southern squad is favored. The Volunteers are 9 to 5 if you want to risk a few bucks on B. C.. while you must lay 11 to 5 if you want to ride with the favorite.

'Frank Shaughnessy, president of the International League, contended the amendment was "potentially one of the most dangerous ever submitted" to the minor league association.

Then he plugged over and Costa converted. A few minutes later. Sinkwich crossed the Miami goal again, but a clipping penalty nullified the score. Frankie promptly brought his team to the Miami eight with two passes, and Allen scored. Costa kicked the extra point again. In the final quarter, Sinkwich circled left end for 20 yards and another touchdown. A pass play.

Well, there's a small fortune (and I gay Ismail" only because money came so easily in-my cotton, picking and chopping;.days in Dixie) it you'nre a football team ?.nd your name happens to be N T otre Dame.

The Irish •ire box-office, beautiful box office, and with the exception of Army and Navy have no genuine competitors as a football attraction.

It relies the name of Notre Dame—i name that more than any othei means football. It, is helped, o course, by the fact that it is th national football school. Thousand upon thousands who never pu foot on a campus have adopted the Irish as their varsity eleven, and sweat and bleed and suffer with them as keenly as does the rawest sophomore at South Bend. You couldn't want any greater proof of Notre Dame's tremendous football prestige than will be offered here today when the men from Indiana take on Southern California in the giant- Coliseum, that pile of concrete which is a hangover from the 1932 Olympics •md a happier day when the athletes of the world played at games and not for keeps." How many persons do you think see this game? Just enough to! make for the biggest football crowd of the year, that's all. A safe es- j rimate is that 90.000 will be in the stands at game time.
