Army, a e'/rpoint underdog, Is the nation's No. 1 defensive team. [t has yielded only 139.5 yards per game in winning five of eight contests. Navy, last year's 27-20 winner, rants third defensively. The Middies have given up in average of 169 yards a game while winning six, losing to Notre Dame and tying Duke. But, as has often been the case in the heated interservice rivalry, the offense could well rise to unexpected heights. Navy's attack Is geared to the throwing arm of 165-pound George Welsh from Coaldale, Pa., fully recovered from a,sore toe that hampered his play in late season games. Navy Coach Eddie Erde- liitz calls Welsh the greatest quarterback he has ever coached.' Six TD Passes Don Holleder, p 187-pounder from Webster, N. Y M and one of the most controversial figures in college football this season, directs the Army attack. A great end last year, he was switched to quarterback,, where he has shown greater ability at running the ball than at passing. But figures show he has completed passes for six touchdowns, only two less than Welsh. Holleder has been blamed by some for the Cadets defeats by Michigan, Syracuse and Yale but veteran Coach Earl (Red) Blaik has placed the blame on mistakes by the entire team. Both coaches were confident of victory as they led their teams into Municipal Stadium today for brief workouts before retiring to suburban clubs to await game time tomorrow. The weather prospect was fair and cool with a fast field. That is just what Blaik ordered for his swift backs, led by Pat Uebel, who scored all of the Army's touchdowns two years ago in a 20-7 victory and. ripped the Middies' line apart in a losing cause last year. Sooners Face Aggies With. Five Players III NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Top-ranked Oklahoma, with i five of its players hit by influenza, places the nation's long- lest current football winning streak on the line tomorrow for 1 the last time in 1955. Southern State (Ark) 12, Arkansas ASM 7 Ouachita 41, Hendrix 0 (South) Wm & Mary 6, Richmond 6 (tie) Virginia Tech 39, Virginia Military 13 (Midwest) Wichita 54. Tulsa 0 Miami (Ohio) 14, Cincinnati 0 Bradley 7, Southern Illinois 7 (tie) (Far West) Denver 6, Wyoming 3 3 Irtah H, Utah State 13 The Sooners aren't figured to have too much trouble making Oklahoma A&M their 29th straight victim when the teams meet in the 50th renewal of the state football rivalry. Some concern, however, was evident In the Oklahoma camp following the siege of flu which nipped five players—including two starters. The most serious casualty was Bill Sturm, diminutive third-string quarterback, who had been elevated to the second unit when starter Jimmy Harris hurt his shoulder in the N-braska game a week ago. May See Action The other four wno have developed "flu symptoms" are right halfback Bob Burris and right tackle Edmon Gray, both start- fullback Dennit Morris. They all were ordered to bed but may see action in the regular season windup with the Aggies. It's at quarterback that the Sooners will be hurting most. With Sturm definitely out and Harris still a doubtful starter, Oklahoma will have only Jay O'Neal to call signals. Carll Dodd, alternate right half, was moved up in Sturm's place to help out with the quarterbacking chores, although he hasn't played the position this season. Worst Season Meanwhile, the Aggies were at full strength. A&M has won only two of nine games this season- its worst in several campaigns. The Sooners' Tommy McDonald will be shooting for a touchdown in every single season game, something that has never been done before by an Oklahoma back. McDonald, a prime All-America candidate at halfback, has tallied 90 points on 15 touchdowns. The Sooners still have Maryland to lace in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 2.
