Aggies, Mustangs, Bears, Longhorns, And Frogs to Win; Rice Picked in Upset of the Day The Texas Aggies take on the N. Y. U. Violets this afternoon in a feature of four intersectional tilts, one classic engagement, and a conference game. Again, we want to men tion the fact that the game will be broadcast over N.B.C. at 1 o’clock. So far in the year, we’ve hit the 1.000 mark as far as picking teams is concerned, but this week looks slightly gloomy for all prognosticators. For two weeks, upsets have been as infrequent as society women at Uncle Ed’s, but there is something in the air today. So here goes at nothing. A. & M. - N. Y. U. . . The Vio lets looked might ragged in their 6-0 win over Lafayette last week, and do not seem to have enough power to withstand anything the cadets have to offer. This one should go to Coach Homer Norton's boys, 21-0, to say the least. RICE-TULANE . . . Any sensi ble and orthodox person would unhesitatingly pick the Greenies by some 25 points, but in this case the writer will be very unorthodox. Yes, we’ll pick the Rice Owls in the biggest upset of the day. Don’t forget, Rice is supposed to be one of the powers in this conference, and even if they did look ragged in beating Sam Houston last week, we feel certain that Coach Jess Neely will have his charges pre pared for any eventuality. So when the final gun barks the score will read, RICE 19, TULANE 13. TEXAS - OKLAHOMA .... Here’s another good long shot to take and make suckers out of the “smart” boys. However, we won’t bite this time. The Longhorns are too strong and have too much at stake to suffer a setback. Okla homa showed an inconsistent at tack in beating Oklahoma A. & M., but may be ready for Texas. Any way it’s the Longhorns by a 20-7 score. T.C.U. — INDIANA. . . . Coach Dutch Meyer’s boys have shown the best defense in the conference and should take the Hoosiers in stride. However, watch for a close game, as Indiana looked promis- A Short Story About OUR NEW SHORTS! You’ll cheer the freedom giving comfort of B. V.

The Razorbacks disappointed many of their fans last week against T. C. U., and would like to redeem them selves. With the game being play ed at Waco, it looks like another setback for Arkansas. Jack Wilson again will prove tough and the Bears should win, 13-0. S. M. U. - COLLEGE OF PA CIFIC . . . This one should really be a “breather” for the Mustangs after the Fordham affair.

Main Bryan Aggies After Third Win Against NYU Cadets Due To Fire Aerials At Violets in Came By Mike Mann Senior Sports Assistant With two games already under their belts, the Texas Aggies will be seeking their third victory when they meet the New York Uni versity Violets this afternoon at one o’clock (C.S.T.) in Yankee Stadium. The game will be broadcast over the NBC, TQN, and MBS through the sponsorship of the Humble Oil and Refining Company. The Aggies arrived in New York Friday morning and held a light drill at Yankee Stadium that afternoon. The A. & M. squad had two workouts enroute to New York; stopping in Vincennes, Indiana, on Wednesday and in Washington on Thursday for a workout on the Washington Redskin Field. A sight seeing tour of the capital was in cluded in the Thursday stopover. Passing Attack A barrage of passes can be ex pected from the Aggies in to day’s game since aerials clicked so well last week against Texas A. & I. The Aggies completed 21 out of 41 passes against the Jave- linas for a net gain of 305 yards. Five out of six of the Aggie touch downs were the result of forward passes. The Violets have played only two games and, like the Aggies, have won both of them; defeating Pennsylvania Military College in the season opener with a score of 25 to 6 and taking Lafayette Col lege last week by a 6-0 count. Coached by Marvin A. “Mai” Ste vens, the Violets have . won 31 games, lost 27, and tied two since that mentor took his post there in 1934. The records show that N.Y.U. won two games, and lost seven last year. Since Coach Stevens is expecting the Aggies to open up with a flock of passes, he has been drilling his team in a defense against passes. Same Lineup The lineup used by the Aggies in the past two games will prob ably be used again today against the Violets. Moser will be in the tailback position and do most of the aerial work for the Aggies while Spivey will be calling sig nals and going out for passes. In cidentally, Spivey is tied with Hen derson for the Southwest Confer ence lead in pass receiving. Willie Zapalac and Jake Webster will round out the Aggie back- field. Webster’s educated toe has placed the ball between the uprights for points after touch down seven times out of eight at tempts. This starting backfield is sup - ported by no less than six fine backs who have shown their merits in both of the Aggie games to date. This supporting hjackfield consists of Daniels, B. Williams, Pickett, Rogers, Andricks, and An drews, most of whom will prob ably see service today. Aggie Forward Wall The probable starting line-up for the Aggie front wall will be Sterling and Henderson, ends; (See AGGIES, Page 4) BATTALIONS— OCTOBER 11, 1941 Page 3 TOM LETTERED IN FOOTBALL , TRACK , BASE- BALL, AND BASKETBALL IN -HIGH SCHOOL, BUT HE IS DEVOTING HIS TIME EXCLU SIVELY TO FOOTBALL MOUU.

Williamson The great battle of the week-end will be down in Dallas, Texas, where the Oklahoma University Sooners meet the Texas Univer sity Longhorns. Lots of other tough games are scheduled for gridirons over the country but this classic of the cow country is where the most fur will fly. The Sys tem rates the Longhorns 3.7 per centage points better than the Sooners. So we will ride with the ratings and pick Texas in a hard- fought match. In other outstanding clashes the System picks Clemson over Bos ton College, Texas Christian over Indiana. Texas A. & M. over New York U., Vanderbilt over Kentucky, Wake Forest over South Carolina, Florida over Villanova, Southern California over Oregon, and Wash ington State over Washington U. The Williamson System reverses its ratings for the first time fn many a moon to pick Colgate over Dartmouth. The “Kay-dets” of Army will have to go some to overcome V. M. I., the “West Point of the South.” Santa Clara will win over Cali fornia and Notre Dame should win easily from Georgia Tech; but (See WILLIAMSON, Page 4) All freshmen enrolled for fresh man P.
