Pennsylvania vs. Pitt at Philadelphia.
Important games are scheduled for
all the Conference football teams to
morrow, and outside the Big Nine
there are several contests which will
have weight in deciding the cham
pionship of the independent schools.
Chicago in meeting Purdue has no
easy task. It has been the custom
for years for Stagg to fear Purdue,
then have the Maroons sweep over
the Boilermakers. But the feeling
out at the Midway now is not empty
fear. Purdue is coming up with a
strong team, one which gave Wiscon
sin a vicious battle, and against this
array Stagg will oppose a team
whose strength is unknown.
Just when it seemed the veteran
coach would whip together a strong
team from his green material inju
ries crept in and he has been forced
to revamp the alignment, putting
new men in several positions. Back
of the line he will have speed and
j power, but the forwards must hold
in order to let the plays be properly
Comparative playing of the two
teams this season gives the Maroons
a. slight edge, but it is so small that
a tiny break in the luck of the game
can completely upset it
Minor should down Northwestern
despite ihe fine playing of the Pur
ple this year. Zupke will have Clark
and Pogue back in the game and that
means much to the attack of the
down-state eleven. Northwestern
has continued its improvement and
on the dope should give the Confer
ence Champions a vigorous battle.
Wisconsin goes against Ohio State,
whose strong eleven held-Illinois to
a field goal tie last Saturday. The
outcome is uncertain. Ohio should
not be underrated, for fine football
was played against the mini and the
tie was not the result of a fluke. Wis
consin's defense has been stiffened.
Outside of the Conference the big
western game is between Notre
Dame and Nebraska, both of whom
have been claiming the independent
title of the west for some time. Later
in the season Nebraska meets Iowa
and Notre Dame meets the Army, -so
there will be an opportunity to com
pare the Conference, the independent
teams and the east. Notre Dame is
at a disadvantage playing in Lincoln,
as it means a long train trip. Ne
braska has a veteran team, while
Harper has been compelled to re
build his machine.
Michigan and Michigan Aggies
come together, with the result un
certain. Yost has fine material this
season, but so far has been unable
to stiffen his line properly. In every
Michigan game the opposition for
wards have sifted through frequent
ly and stopped the Ann Arbor backs
behind their own line.
In the east the feature game is be
tween Dartmouth and Princeton.
The Hanover squad has shown high
scoring power all season, the attack
being superior to the Princeton run
ning. It is largely a question of de
fensive strength. Yale and Harvard
have tough games, but the big teams
have improved. Yale -will miss Le
Gore, who has been ruled out for professionalism.
Bryan Scott, Knox college football
player, injured in the St. Louis game
last Saturday, died in St Louis. A
vertebrae in his neck was dislocated
