WISCONSIN TOO FAST.
Nebraska Defeated by the Unusual
Speed of the Badgers Varsity
Puts TJp a Game to
be Proud of
The name Is over. Wlaconsln won
The score was 18 to 0. These figures
suggest a larger difference In the
two tcamB than really did exist.
Three times Nebraska had tno ball
on Wisconsin's fle yard line and
three times the Badgers held the
Cornhuskers. It was a grand game
In which Nebraska was beaten but
not vanquished. Wisconsin was
feared oh, how she was scared ! Her
Interference, thus Tar invincible
proved not 1 bug enigmatical to tne
visitors. Their lamous punting was
more than equalled by big Pill
From a spectator's standpoint the
game it is said was by far the
prettiest ever seen in Milwaukee. In
short it was a mighty closo call for
Pbinng's youngsterErand bo-aamlts
the fact himself. During tho first
half Nobraska outpalyed tho Badgers
at every point. It looked blue for
Wisconsin the first twenty minutes of
play. It wus ail in bur territory and
Nebraska outplaying on every hand.
When tho ball had been worked down
to her 5 yard line Wisconsin took a
brace. She had to. Drain tried a
goal from Held but the wind drew
the oall aside. So It may ho said and
is conceedea that Nebraska won new
laurels even in Ler defeat.
.It is believed tbat the Badgers will
schedule with us again next year.
Minnesota will and thus our en
trance Into tbe big nino will be as
sured. WHAT THE COACHES SAY.
After the game Coach Booth Bala:
'It was a good game and tho best
tenmvon. Nebraska played an ad-
tfwqhlA-gflin.plnri'rl nt, fast 100 Per
cent better than she did against
Minnesota three weeks ago. II aa
our fellows played ana punted at
Minneapolis as they did here this
afternoon tho gophers never would
have scored. Today's contest was an
excellent exhibition of football.
Wisconsin certainly plays n much
better gamo than Minnesota did when
wa.giaiLJifir.and 1 do not.tblnk any
one will dispute my assertion wherTT
say that Nebraska put
up a plucky
Phi King, coach Tor the Wisconsin;
--' Weexpected tbatJSraska would
make It Interesting for us, and I
guess everyone who saw tbe gamo
thloks-thoyidia-sa.JQth,8 men put
up a good article of football and are
as plucky a lot of players as anyone
could wish to see. They were not
quitters at any staao of tho game.
Even after Wisconsin bad scored tbey
continued to give us a bird fight for
every yard wo gained. It was no off
a ay for Wisconsin, though our fellows
might have played a different gamo
in some points. Tbey were careless
at times, out tbat was not because
they felt over confident as to tbe out
come It was a rattling good game."
Z Everett Wrenn of Harvard, one "of
tne officials of tbb game, said:
- "It was ono of tho prettiest con
tests I ever have seen in the west.
&. .-,. v
It was good foot-ball. Wisconsin
plavs mucn better and faster nail
than Minnesota did three weoks
ago; in fact, I think. Lho best game
lhat is being played anywhere in
the west today. Nobraska put up a
puicKy fight, as is evidenced by tbe
fact that the ball was In Wisconsin's
territory most of the time In the
first half. 1 think that first half
was as good foot-ball as I have ever
seen In the west. And Nebraska
din not lose her nervo even after
Bhe had been scored upon, but mado
the badgers fight for evefv gain
DETAILS OF THE GAME.
Wisconsin won the toss, chose tho
east goal with the wind at her bacK
and with this disadvantage Btarlng
bor In the face Netiraksa started a
punting contest. Tobin kicked off
the ball falling Into the arms of
Driver who got off a good return
punt. Drain caught it but was held
bofoio he could aavance It. Wiscon
sin held Nebraska for downb and
Pillsbury punted to tho Badgers 25
yard lino. Kings men now seeing they
wore making littiD on Ihe puntiTTgi
tried a series of lino plays which
netted nothing. Then they tried an
end run but lostTjhe ball on a fumble.
Shortly afterwards Nebraska juggled
a Blgnal and lost the ball. Tbe
Badgers tried end plays again but
were forced Co kick. Driver kicked
out of bounds on Nebraska forty-fivo
vard lino. Thon Nebraska began a
march which brought fear to Wis
consin hearts. Kingsbury was sent
over twice for bve vard gains. West
over went through for four mor.
iVinding they were in easy kicking
aistance of Wisconsin's goal Drain
tried a place kick. The wind dislo
catea the aim and it failed.
Shortly after the Cocbons the star
running back of Wisconsin it ado tbe
first and one of the longest runs of
tho gamo, skirting Nebraska's left

Nebraska got the ball, on a double
pass be gofj Into tbe clear and ran
thirty yards to Wisconsin's ten yard

for five yards. It was one of Nebras
ka's chances but Wisconsin bold for
downs. Tho light Beomed to have
done Wisconsin gooa for sl.o played

Spoils the Play
Omaha high school sent 200 rooters

In spite of the rain which began
railing about one o'clock and lasted
all through the game tho play was
fust and vigorous throughout.

were wet to the skin.

After holding Omaha for downs the
High School took the ball and by
line bucks and and snappv end runs,
pushed the ball over for the first
touchdown in about two minutes.
Haegir failed a vory difficult goal.
In tbe latter part of tbe first half
Omaha worked tho ball to Lincoln's
two yard line whore they were held
for downs. The Lincoln boys then
worked tho ball back about fifteen
yaids and and were hold for downs.
Omaha again pusbd tbe pig skin
dangerously close to Lincoln's goal
but on account of Lincoln's excellent
derense they were unable to scoro.
Tlmo was called with the Ball In
Lincoln's possession on their three

north wind at thoir backs in tho
second half and by steady lino buck
ing and a brilliant ond run oy Haw
lav she was enablod to score two more
touch downs. The playing of
both teams was exceptionally lino
both on offensive and defensive. The

THE FOOT-BALL TEAM RE
TURNS. Tho foot-ball contingent returned
yesterday evening at Blx o'clock over
the Northwestern. Tboy express
themselves as well pleased ovor the
showing made at Milwaukee Satur
day. Plllsbury's punting was especi
ally tho subject of much enthusiastic
ball whirling down the field from Ne
braska's ten yard lino to within ten
varos of Wisconsin's goal. II 1b work
throughout tne gamo was of a vory
high order. Tho play put up by
Wisconsin was exceptionally fast.
The ball was in play almost before
tbe Nebraska players could regain
their feet. It is tho unanimous
opinion tbat Nebraska out up by far
the best game of tho season.
As a result of tbe gamo a contest
with WIsoonsin for noxt year ls2l
roady assured and Minnesota has
given a verbal promise to schedule a
game next soasnn. Tbo Wisconsin
gamo will bo played some time aftor
tbe third week In October. There Is
also talk of games with Micnigan and
Iowa but nothing definite has been
dene regarding them yet.
