NEW YORK, Oct. 26-(P)-If a
centipede crawled over 'a map of the
United States tonight each one oftits
100 legs would touch the site of a,
college football upset.
Here's what the drug-store quar-
terbacks will have to argue about for
at least the coming week:
Rice 18, Texas 13
Wake Forest 19, Tennessee 6
Southern Methodist 17, Missouri 0
Illinois 13, Michigan 9
Washington 20, California 6
Virginia Tech 14, North Carolina
State 6
Kings Point 7, Fordham 6
Mississippi 9, Arkansas 7
Cincinnati 18, MSC 7
And then there were such surprises
as Army's relatively difficult 19 to 0
victory over Duke, all the cadet points
being gained through the air when
the stubborn Southern line refused to
be denied by such stalwarts as Glenn
Davis and Doc Blanchard.
Iowa Swamped
Notre Dame's 41 to 6 verdict over
Iowa also came in that category, but
only becauserofthe hugeness oftthe
score. The Irish, ahead by a 20 to 6
margin at the half, turned Johnny
Lujack loose in the final periods to
break the jinx of never having won
in the cornland capital.
Even a superior day by Bobby
Layne, Texas' great fullback, couldn't
stave off the third consecutive defeat
the Rice Owls have pasted onto the
Longhorn record. George Walmsley
and Windell Williams, a pair too in-
Big Nine

jured to start, engineered the day's
biggest upset of the day for Rice.
Tennessee loses
Dickey Brinkley, the fullback-
sports writer who publicly blamed
himself for Wake Forest's defeat a
week ago, was unstoppable today as
the Southern Conference Deacons
administered the worst home defeat
for a Tennessee club since Bob Ney-
land came there 15 years ago.
A sturdy Illinois line, that re-
pulsed a Michigan drive on the five
just before the gun, spun 85,938 Wol-
verine alumni into sadness and
ruined virtually all hopes Michigan
had for an undisputed Big Ten title.
North Carolina State skidded from
the undefeated list when its ground
attack was able to grind out but four
yards net gained in the Wolfpack's
fray with Virginia Tech.
Fordham Humbled
Kings Point, beaten in all six pre-
vious starts, humbled Fordham, 7
to 6, while City College of New York,
which hadn't won asince 1943, got
four touchdowns-more points than
it had scored the past three years-
in bopping Wagner, 27 to 6.
Michigan's defeat lifted Northwest-
ern, a 26 to 13 winner today over
coach A. A. Stagg's College of the Pa-
cific, to the top of the Big Nine heap.
Indiana, defending champion, belted
Nebraska of the Big Six, 27 to 7,
while Ohio State walloped Minnesota,
39 to 9.
Big Six Surprised
Big Six teams spent a wretched
afternoon. In addition to the Ne-
braska loss, Southern Methodist
flattened Missouri, 17 to 0, and Tulsa
dumped Kansas, 56 to 0. In a family
affair Oklahoma thrashed Iowa
State, 63 to 0.
Missippi, starved for a victory,
downed Arkansas, 9 to 7, in an inter-
conference affair at Memphis and
Cincinnati, which opened this year'
of upsets by spilling Indiana, did it
again, this time up--ending Michigan
State, 18 to 7.
Tulane Dropped
Below the Mason-Dixon line, Mis-
sissippi State combined its aerial at-
tack with a strong enough ground
formation to down Tulane, 14 to 7,
and Georgia drubbed Furman, 70 to
7. Georgia Tech came through as

Grid Scores

NEW YORK, Oct. 26-(/P)-Arn-
old Tucker, Army's rifle-armed quar-
terback from Miami, Fla., spared the
Cadets some serious embarrassment
today by firing three touchdown
passes to beat an aggressive, hard-
tackling Duke University eleven that
refused to yield on the ground.
For the first time since they began
their record of 24 straight victories,
the West Pointers had to take to the
air to score all the points of their
19-0 triumph over the Blue Devils.
Two of Tuckers's scoring pitches were
to All-America Glenn Davis, the
third to big Barney Poole, the end.
Both Davis and his brilliant run-
ning mate, Felix (Doe) Blanchard,
played almost all of the bruising
contest, coming out only after
Army had scored its third touch-
down three minutes and 15 seconds
before the game ended. Both con-
tributed some dazzling runs to the
Cade.s' long touchdown jaunts,
but neither, for the first time in
three seasons, could fight his way
across the enemy's goal line.
In Duke, the capacity crowd of
59,031 banked in the Polo Grounds
saw a persistent, ever-dangerous
team that added new laurels to the
coaching reputation of Wallace
Wade. Twice in the third period the
Blue Devils cracked down to Army's
20-yard line. Never at any time
until the closing minutes were Army's
supporters able to breathe easily.
The Blue Devils, 20-pointiunder-
dogs, made the Black Knights fight
for every inch of ground they gained.
In their first 80-yard touchowns
march that started mid-way of the
first quarter, for instance, the Cadets
used up 17 plays end six first downs
before Tucker climaxed it with a 30-
yaid peg to Davis in the end zone.
Throughout the second period the
Army did almost all the gaining, but
in its own end of the field, and every
time it appeared to be getting started
the Dukes came back and smothered
the effort.
As Jack Ray missed his try for ex-
tra point after Davis' touchdown,
Army left the field at halftime lead-
ing only 6-0.
The Cadets looked more like their
championship selves when, the first
time they got the ball in the third
quarter, they slammed 48 yards for a
second score. Blanchard and Davis
virtually alternated in bringing
down to the 13-yard line, whence, on
first down. Tucker shot one into
Poole's arms on the goal line. This
time Ray's kick was blocked by the
charging Duke line, making it 12-0.
Up to this time the Blue Devils had1

not made a single first down with
their single-wing attack, but they
suddenly came to life and, through
the remainder of the third period and
until midway of the fourth, roundly
outplayed the champs.
Rice owns Texas
HOUSTON, Tex., Oct. 26 -(A')--
Rice tor down Texas' football dreams
today with a well-earnd 18-13 vic-
tory that removed the Longhorns
from the nation's unbaten ranks. The
upset shot the owls into a favored
position in the Southwest Conference
It was a thriller - a game that
saw Texas' Bobby Layne at his best
-but even the great fullback could
not offset the' mighty-charging owls
who tore the Longhorn defense to
A couple of cripples - lit#ie
George Walmsley,who had played
only five minutes in three weeks,
and Windell Williams, who could
not start the game because of an
injured leg - figured greatly for
the Owls in theid upset triumph. It
was the third time in three years
that Rice has beaten Texas.
It was Williams who took two
touchdown passes, both from the
trusty arm of big Virgil Eikenberg,
Rice quarterback. Walmsley com-
bined with Carl Russ and Don An-
derson in whipping through the Tex-
as line for 232 yards.
Statistice gave Rice the edge. The
Owls made 20 first downs to 15 for
Texas, gained 293 yards rushin gand
passing to 277 for the Longhorns.
Layne was the individual star.
Not only did he fling 22 passes and
connect with 12 for 144 yards, but
he raced 51 yardsi on the ground.
The heralded passing duel between
Layne and Eikenberg did not mater-
ialize in its true sense. Eikenberg
threw only 11 and completed three
but two of them were for touch-
downs - so it might be said that
the Owl star bettered Layne in the
air since the pay-off is on touch-
The Owls in just 14 plays drove
to a touchdown late in the opening
period. Huey Kenney, Russ and An-
derson alternated in hammering the
line in the 74-yard parade. From
the Texas 10 Kenney swept left end
for seven and Anderson raced wide
around left end for the counter. Fan
Ballard missed the conversion.
Rice took the lead the first time
it got the ball in the third period,
rumbling 79 yards to a touchdown.
The payoff was a pass from Eiken-
berg to Williams in the end zone
from the Texas 10. Ballard missed
the extra point.

EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 26-(,P)--
Coach Amos Alonzo Stagg's razzle-
dazzle scored in a single 102-yard
play today for College of The Pa-
cific and helped cushion his "home-
coming" defeat at the hands of un-
beaten Northwestern which substi-
tuted freely in gaining a 26-13 vic-
With'his team trailing 20-6 at the
half, the 84-year-old dean of the
country's coaches accepted honors

of Chicago athletic organization
which he formed during his 41-year
regime at the school, and the North-
