Red Grange Predicts

View CoverRead All Articles View This Issue

CORNELL VS. DARTMOUTH
The winner will be in a good spot to grab a piece or all of the Ivy League title. A battle of defensive lines, and I think the Indians can hold the Big Red. DARTMOUTH.

YALE VS. PRINCETON
The Elis are having their troubles, and the Tigers, loaded with good tailbacks, will be out to keep their Ivy hopes alive in this NCAA regional telecast. I'll be working the game on NBC-TV, so no prediction.

IOWA VS. OHIO STATE
The Hawkeyes, with the Big Ten crown and a trip to Pasadena already in their pocket, may suffer a letdown, but not enough to open the gates for an offense-poor Ohio State team. IOWA.

PURDUE VS. NORTHWESTERN
Northwestern seems to have simmered down a little. Purdue, beaten only by Wisconsin, packs too much all-round power for the eager Wildcats. PURDUE.

OKLAHOMA VS. MISSOURI
Missouri, after surprising Colorado, will be shooting for the Big Eight crown and the Orange Bowl. But the Tigers must contend with a Sooner team which has been coming fast. I can't pick against OKLAHOMA.

NOTRE DAME VS. NORTH CAROLINA
North Carolina has shown rapid improvement under Coach Jim Tatum but the Tar Heel defense will be under severe pressure when Notre Dame's George Izo begins to toss those long ones. On passing alone, it must be NOTRE DAME.

MISSISSIPPI STATE VS. LSU
The Tigers are still unbeaten and State doesn't have the means to stop them. Rabb's passing, Cannon's running and a great line spell victory for LSU.

AIR FORCE VS. WYOMING
The Air Force Falcons are flying high ahead of schedule and have too many good ballplayers for Wyoming. AIR FORCE.

RICE VS. TEXAS A&M
The Owls went down to the last minute before losing to Army. They'll have less trouble with Texas A&M. Even without a great passer, the winner must be RICE.

TCU VS. TEXAS
Texas hasn't been able to get un-tracked since upsetting Oklahoma. TCU has a lot of good backs and they will run all over the Long-horns. TCU.
