Thanksgiving. The week of the
turkey? Not quite. In this age of
advanced technology and the
likes of Chris Schenkel and Bud
Wilkinson, turkeys must move
aside and share the limelight
with college football. Oh, what
would the Pilgrims say?
Nebraska and Oklahoma collide
in Lincoln on Turkey Day with
the Big Eight crown at stake.

The Trojans collected 44 of the

A first place vote went to Michi-
gan, which held third place despite
a narrow 9-6 victory over Purdue.

Greg "Super-Sport" Pruitt.
The Cornhuskers, 59-7 winners
over Kansas State last weekend,
defend Big Red country with a
5-0-1 conference mark, thanks to
a 23-23 tie with bowl-bound Iowa
State. The visiting team, mean-
while, readied their devastating
wishbone attack with a 31-7 past-
ing of Kansas. Pruitt and Co.
enter the much-awaited encount-
er boasting a 4-1 Big Eight slate.
Bob Devaney's contingent bare-
ly grabbed victory against the
Sooners in last year's "Game of
the Century," 35-31. This week's
contest is rated a toss-up. The
only certainty concerning the
game, along with the promise of
top-notch football, is that[Rodg-
ers, Pruitt and Nebraska's for-
gotten man Rich Glover will all
be getting in their last "two
cents worth" for the coveted
Heisman.
University of Texas pigskin
supporters, avid and devout be-
ings that they are, invade Austin
on the day of the gobble-gobble
to behold what could well be the
massacre of Texas A&M. The
Longhorns own the Southwest
Conference title for the fifth con-
secutive year. With a 8-1 record
and victories over Arkansas and
Texas Tech under its belt, Texas
should have "easy pickings" with
A&M.
The visitors own the confer-
ence's cellar position with a 2-4
mark. A colorful sidelight to this
nationally televised game, which
may need all the excitement it
can get, will be the constant
voicing of amusing cheers from
all sides of Memorial Stadium.
Such exclamations as "Hook
'em, Horns" and "Gig 'em,
Aggies" should liven up the ac-
tion whenever it tends to get
dull.
An Aggie-Longhorn battle in-
volves emotions as well as talent,
so despite the lopsided records
this contest will provide good
college football action.
Ivy League football has long
been characterized by little skill,
lots of emotion and raccoon-coat-

sota, the Purdue-Indiana game
ranks second in importance to
Hoosier residents losing out to
Notre Dame-Purdue clambakes.
Purdue will probably show the
effects of last weekend's donny-
brook here in Ann Arbor while
Indiana comes off a win over
Iowa. Perhaps the Boilermakers
will suffer a letdown and allow
John Pont's forces to regain the
coveted pail.
The unpredictable Spartans of
Michigan State, losers to Minne-
sota a week ago, host North-
western in Duffy Daugherty's
final game as Spartan coach.
MSU wanted to finish their last
four games undefeated. That
hope has now been washed down

the drain by the Golden Gophers,
so the best they can do now is let
Duffy leave a winner. Northwest-
ern leads the nation in passing
d e f e n s e, but nevertheless it
shouldn't give Duffy's squad
much trouble since State doesn't
pass. Barring an upset, the smil-
ing Irishman's final 'season rec-
ord should read 5-5-1.

of Dartmouth, sporting a 4-1-1
league record, can take the title
outright.
In "The Game," as its referred
to on the East Coast, Harvard's
schizophrenic team attempts to
regain some pride from a season
marred by losses to such foot-
ball weaklings as Princeton.
Memories of the 1968 Harvard-
Yale game which the Crimson
"won" 29-29 with 16 points in the
final 41 seconds still linger over
ancient Harvard Stadium.
Surprising'Penn, victors in four

straight league games, hosts pe-
rennial league chamipon Dart-
mouth. The Quakers, with ilttle
skill, but lots of emotion and
fans, follow the Ivy League
axiom perfectly. Dartmouth, on
the other hand, has found no
trouble with opponents this sea-
son except for a tie with Har-
vard and a loss to Yale. The
Big Green should win in the
"City of Brotherly Love." Any-
way, what would an Ivy League
winter be if the football trophy
were not resting securely in Han-
over, N.H.?
The West also has a conference
title at stake as Arizona and
Arizona State collide for the
championship of the Western
Athletic Conference. The Sun
Devils lead the nation in total
offense with 512.6 yards per
game, 331.8 of those coming on
the ground. Both teams boast
4-1 WAC slates but Arizona State
must be rated clear-cut favorites
in this encounter as Arizona has
dropped every one of its non-
conference games. The winner of
Saturday's contest, along with the
conference title, also gains the
right to play Missouri in the
Fiesta Bowl over the holidays.
The final weekend of Big Ten
Conference action includes,
though not nationally important
games, old rivalries and floods
of sentimentality. Indiana's low-
ly Hoosiers travel to Purdue to
play for, believe it or not, the
"Old Oaken Bucket."
