HICKMAN'S HUNCHES for Games of Saturday, Oct. 29

•Notre Dame vs. Navy: This one captures the imagination. Not since 1945 have the Middies beaten the Irish. It is hard to go against the irrepressible Welsh and Co. but here goes...NOTRE DAME.

•Michigan vs. Iowa: Hawkeyes have manpower to win but unbeaten Wolverines continue to take the close ones. MICHIGAN.

•Georgia Tech vs. Duke: Once-beaten Engineers and Blue Devils collide. Better kicking and mobile defense favor home team. GEORGIA TECH.

•Minnesota vs. Southern California: Gophers rose to season's peak against Michigan Saturday. Trojans, except for Washington lapse, have been invincible. SOUTHERN CAL.

•Arkansas vs. Texas A&M: Bear Bryant's Aggie Sophs continue to surprise. Where does it end? Not here...TEXAS A&M.

•Washington vs. Oregon State: Only a tie with Stanford mars Huskies record while Beavers lone conference loss was to UCLA. Huskies still Rose Bowl hungry. WASHINGTON.

•Southern Methodist vs. Texas: Massive Mustangs now have won three in a row. Longhorns in and out. Out here...SMU.

•Holy Cross vs. Syracuse: Unbeaten Crusaders face strongest challenge. Suicide-scheduled Syracuse succumbed to Maryland after conquering Cadets. An upset here...SYRACUSE.

•Pittsburgh vs. Miami: Both teams have met the best. If Miami's morale has not suffered too much, Andy Gustafson could beat his alma mater. Trend of the times. Another upset...MIAMI.

•UCLA vs. California: The Bears from Berkeley can offer only token resistance. The call of the Rose Bowl can be heard clearly. Easily...UCLA.
