(Si — The Air Force Academy figures it has the smartest college football team in the nation — academically, at least. Coach Ben Martin can field an entire team of players with a B average or better. "I never try to outsmart these fellows," says Martin, who was sixth in a class of 1,045 when he was graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1945.

Rankin looked like a promising quarterback candidate after an early shift from fullback, but injuries have kept him out of action nearly all season. The toll was so heavy that only one of tlte II Alabama starters against Auburn had missed the injury list — halfback Leon Fuller.
