HICKMAN'S HUNCHES For Games of Saturday, October 12

•Army—Notre Dame. Both teams large, lean and unlocked. Will pass if have to, but are primarily ground-minded. An edge to the Cadets. ARMY.

•Michigan—Michigan State. Another battle between the unbeaten. Spartans stuttered in California win, while Wolverines won over weak Georgia. In a battle of the multiple offenses, a slight nod to...MICHIGAN STATE.

•Rice—Duke. Two more untested Titans tangle in Houston. Rice wrecked Stanford Saturday with the greatest of ease. Blue Devils unimpressive in Maryland win. Hard to figure but...DUKE.

•Texas—Oklahoma. Longhorns suffered unexpected loss to South Carolina Saturday, and Sooners were not too sharp against stubborn Iowa State. Both teams will be ready for this one, but still the Sooners. OKLAHOMA.

•Princeton—Pennsylvania. Quakers are coming despite two losses, but Tigers have arrived. Neither key injuries nor illness of coach can slow down their single-wing attack and stubborn defense. PRINCETON.

•Northwestern—Minnesota. Winless Wildcats were an improved team against Oregon State. Gophers just scraped by battling Boilermakers. Still undefeated...MINNESOTA.

•Baylor—Arkansas. Big Bears were waylaid by Hurricanes in Miami. Razorbacks continued winning ways over TCU. Now or never...BAYLOR.

•Ohio state—Illinois. Both teams bounced back with big wins. Unpredictable describes the Illini. Buckeyes in and out. But...OHIO STATE.
