HICKMAN'S HUNCHES For Games of Saturday, September 28

•Tennessee—Auburn. Tigers, with heaviest line in conference, to test Vols' vulnerability. The team that makes fewer mistakes wins. TENNESSEE.

•Purdue—Notre Dame. Boilermakers may be tougher despite loss of passer Len Dawson. Hornung-less Irish better, too. A must win for Notre Dame. Repeat NOTRE DAME.

•Stanford—Northwestern. Intrepid Indians with one scalp already on their belt will throw and throw, but Wildcats will win before nation-wide TV audience. NORTHWESTERN.

•Pennsylvania—Penn state. Improved Quakers will be an Ivy League threat this year, but Nittany Lions are potentially one of the nation's better teams. They speak another language. PENN STATE.

•Ohio State—Texas Christian. Horned Frogs, tied by Kansas, are not up to standard. Ground-bound Buckeyes may take to the air. OHIO STATE.

•Minnesota—Washington. Gophers are once again the giants of the north. Huskies, strong on defense, can't cope with their attack. MINNESOTA.

•West Virginia—Virginia Tech. Southern Conference title will hinge on this one. Mountaineers not sharp in tie with Virginia. VIRGINIA TECH.

•Kansas—Oregon State. Jayhawks could have best team in several seasons and could give trouble if Beavers let down after big win over Trojans. Still...OREGON STATE.

•Georgia Tech—Southern Methodist. Yellow Jackets successfully unveiled their new faces against Kentucky, while new Coach Bill Meek's Mustangs took California. GEORGIA TECH.
