HICKMAN'S HUNCHES for Games of Saturday, Nov. 19

•Michigan vs. Ohio State: A win for the Wolverines means the Rose Bowl. Opportunist Howard Cassady and his ground-minded crew from Columbus will be playing for the Blue Chips but...MICHIGAN.

•Southern Cal vs. UCLA: The Bruins showed the stuff champions are made of by beating Washington in last minute of play. Rose Bowl bound...UCLA.

•Yale vs. Harvard: The Cantabs can win the Big Three title by beating the Bulldogs, but Yale will come storming back...YALE.

•Nebraska vs. Oklahoma: On paper this sounds like a natural, but Sooners write another language...OKLAHOMA.

•Texas Christian vs. Rice: The Horned Frogs edged closer to the Cotton Bowl by blasting Texas 47-20 Saturday. Anything can happen in the SWC but I'll take...TCU.

•Kentucky vs. Tennessee: Unbeaten in the last six games, the young Volunteers meet the talented but in-and-out Wildcats. Kentucky's no kissing cousin but...TENNESSEE.

•Penn State vs. Pittsburgh: If Pitt's great ends, Joe Paluck and Joe Walton, can contain Lenny Moore a victory should be assured...PITTSBURGH.

•Indiana vs. Purdue: The Hoosiers will shoot the works on this one, but the big Boilermakers have too much and Len Dawson, too...PURDUE.

•Princeton vs. Dartmouth: Tigers can take the Ivy League crown by winning this one, but Bob Blackman's boys from Hanover are capable. Still...PRINCETON.

•Notre Dame vs. Iowa: Iowa is traditionally tough in this one. It's the perfect spot for an upset but, as I've said before, Notre Dame is...NOTRE DAME.
