GRINNELLWAS RUN OVER
Varsity Plays a Superb Game and
Shows Her Opponents How
to Play Other
..Nothing but the heavy rai which
felf throughout almost the entire game
prevented. Nebraska from runniirg up a
score Of 'about 30 to" 0 agataBt-eflnnell.
During the second half the field was
so Bllppory that It was almost Impossi
ble to make a gain of any kind.
Grlnnell was out-weighed, out
classed and out-played. Their line was
unable to withstand the fierce on
slaught of the varsity, and only once
was Nebraska held for downs. Grln
ncll'B kicking was decidedly "hum,"
and the way Cortelyou and Shedd got
down tho field made it impossible for
tho visitors to d.o anything but lose
ground on an exchange of punts.
Nebraska's line up was subject to
considerable chango during the second
half. Thorpe wont In at quarter and
Benedict went in at right half, to
succeed SIrnodymus. Follmer took
She4d 'a place at end. but was put out
as the result of a mix up with his op
ponent. Westover then played end,
giving way in the line to Brlggs. Cot
ton went in at right guard in Tobln's
The halves were short and two min
utes more of play In tho second half
would probably havo resulted in an
other score for Nebraska.
The Game in Detail.

the 10 yard line, and he responded
with a 10 yard return. A 5 yard gain
followed on the third down. Mickel

and carried the ball out. Slmodymus

tho 15 yard line. He returned 10
yards and Shedd carried tho ball

ning of the year. The'questlpn was

The motion at once stirred tho Se
nior elements and a great deal of

Gophers obtained their points only by
the fiercest work. The Minnesota play

over only at the end of the first half.
The ball was kept during tho first half
almost entirely in tho center of the
"In the second half Belolt succeeded
In making a sixty-five yard run, .but
