Most ACC Fans don't realize it but the Wildcats have
been keeping company with the cream of the crop as small
college football goes.
Tho University of Chattanooga who sneaked passed
the 'Cats last week 22-12. wore ranked number four in
tho nation at game lime and ACC's first opponent East
Toxeis State is now listed as the number eight squad
In tho U.S.
And to top it off on Homecoming day November 1 Abi-
lene Christian takes on the nation's number one team the
Southerners from Mississippi Southern.
A lot of favorable comment has been heard and read
about Wildcat end Robert McLeod's fine performance last
week in Chattanooga. One Chattanooga Times sports writer
stated in his game summary "The University of Chattanooga
couldn't stop Bob McLeod." .
Watch Minor Ace
The man to watch tomorrow night at El Paso Is Texas
Western quarterback Laraba. A specialist in passing Laraba
may hit ACC where it hurts-their pass defense. A former
all-conference signal caller the TWC ace completed five
touchdown passes in one game last year.
However Coach Nicholson has been preparing for
Laraba in squad workouts this week. One Wildcat player
put it this way. "All wo'vo dono is practice pass defense
. . defonso . . dofenso ."
