HICKMAN'S HUNCHES for games of Saturday, November 2

•Michigan—Iowa. TV Game of the Week. Hawkeyes, sparked by fine defensive play, have come clean thus far. Wolverines still very much in contention for Big Ten title and trip to Rose Bowl despite lopsided loss to Spartans. Out on the limb, perhaps, but, MICHIGAN.

•Notre Dame—Navy. Midshipmen have displayed more versatile attack with emphasis on air arm. Undefeated Irish have weathered more trying schedule. Both teams lack breakaway threats. Difficult to diagnose. NOTRE DAME.

•Arkansas—Texas A&M. Once-beaten Razorbacks rose up and knocked Ole Miss from the ranks of the undefeated, while Aggies continued to roll unmolested against Baylor. Arkansas is capable, but must stick with TEXAS A&M.

•Wisconsin—Michigan State. Badgers, despite two losses, are the most improved team in conference. Last two outings have shown Spartans not quite the superteam as witnessed in Michigan game. Wisconsin can win but I'll pick MICHIGAN STATE.

•Yale—Dartmouth. Unbeaten Indians invade bowl for big war party with young Elis. Once-beaten Bulldogs will make a battle of it, but Big Green boasts many talented braves. DARTMOUTH.

•Auburn—Florida. Tigers look like a cinch to win SEC title but in-and-out Gators are spoilers. Still sticking to the team with the better defense, AUBURN.

•Stanford—Oregon. Inconsistent Indians can win or lose against any team. This has been proved. Ducks, undefeated in conference, look like Rose Bowl representatives. Just the type of team for Stanford to beat. Still, OREGON.

•Georgia Tech—Duke. Young Yellow Jackets have stood up well but Bobby Dodd was not crying wolf when he said team lacked experience. Blue Devils are loaded despite tie by nifty North Carolina State. DUKE.
