Penn, unbeaten in fi ve games, Is rntcd a 14-polnt choice over power- packed Virginia, winners of all of their six games. Georgia Tech slightly hampered by injuries Is n seven point choice over a Nnvy team beaten by Notre Dame last week. Michigan and Wisconsin, who meet next week in a game that will probably decide the Big Nine title, are favored In games today—Michigan by 20 points over Indiana and Wisconsin by 13',S over Iowa. North Carolina is a H-point favorite In Its traditional game with North Carolina State, while Southern Methodist Is seven-and-a-half over Texas A. and M., and Kansas Is 14 points over Nebraska.

The Detroit victory came a* aur- prlse. since Nevada entered the Bame a two-touchdown favorite on he strength of six wins In seven pievious starts.

(UP)Army's once-beaten football team and the undefeated Irish of Notre Dame close a 34-year-old football rivalry In Notre Dame stadium today with Notre Dame a heavy favorite. But nolKJdy on the Irish squad neither coaches nor playcr.s expected to have an easy time 'with the nigged Army squad.

This will be the 18th meeting between the two schools and Tennessee has walked off with 1« victories nnd one tie, though twice they robbed the Rebels of triumphs by scant seconds. That's where clumkin' Charley the nation's leading passer and cinch candidate for All-America honors, comes in. The lanky Mlss- Isslpplan, called "the Roach" by his teammates, was the persona! victim of one of those "robberies." Last year Conerly did everything but cat the goal posts as he led the Ole Miss team into the last half minute of play with an apparently safe lead of 14 to 12. But with only 23 seconds left, the Vols exploded a touchdown and kept their record clean. Georgian /$ Nominated For USGA Presidency NEW YORK, Nov. 8.
