KNOX SUffERS DEfEAT
Varsity Wins the Game in a field
of Mud Good Football
Played Before a fair
Nebraska's goal still remains un
crossed, and Knox Is added to the list
of the vanquished. Those who expect
ed to see a good game were not disap
pointed, and In spite of a muddy field
and a continual fall of rain and snow,
the opposing teams played the game
to the satisfaction of all concerned.
It was a matter of the keenest disap
pointment to all, that the day was so
unfavorable for football. Knox College
was considered one of the most for
midable opponents to be met by Ne
braska this season, and since her num
erous successes with members of the
"Big Nine" and Nebraska's unparalleled
record, great interest was attached to
the game. As it was, some 2,000 peo
ple witnessed the game. The band was
out and aided the rooters in giving
lifo to the occasion. Supporters of the
Galesburg team were few In number.
No rates were given by the railroads.
and the distance was greater than tho
enthusiasm of tho Knoxltes. Knox un
doubtedly has a good team, but condi
tions were such that It is hard to judge
tho comparative strength of the op
ponents. Both coaches expressed a be
lief that their teams would have made
a hotter showing had it not been for
tlio condition of tho Held. To say the
least Nebraska played much better foot
ball than her opponents, and tho score
scarcely represents the work done by
tho Cornhusker8. Throe or four min
utes properly distributed would prob
ably have netted them two touchdowns
In addition to the one scored. Nebras
ka played an offensive game almost
entirely and had little difficulty In get
ting through the opposing line but
only through their team work, as
sprinting and Individual plays were
Impossible. The backs almost Invar
rlably carried the ball, end runs being
almost an Impossibility.
Tho Cornhuskers played with a great
deal of luck In the first half. Knox was
Justly penalized four times for offside
play, the penalties netting Nebraska
"twenty yards. Twice Knox lost the ball
pn a fumble at a critical point In the
game, when tho Illinois men were go
ing down tho field on large gains. The
greatest proof of the strength of Knox
Is that she held tho Cornhuskers for
downs when within six inches of the
Cortelyou played a star game at right
end and never failed to get down the
flold on a punt In time to stop a re
turn. The Knox men wisely refrained
from trying his end very often. To
him Is du6 tho credit of the first two
points. Benedict was also In his prime,
and clearly outplayed Zalusky, who
played In the back field for the visitors.
"Bonny" never mlsBed a punt and made
Knox kicked off forty-five yards to
Benedict, who returned five. Bender
went through the line for five yards,
and an offside play by the visitors net
ted five more. Bender and Bell gained
three yards and Benedict was forced
to punt. Zalusky mlBsed the ball, and
It rolled within a yard of the goal, and
before Zalusky could return Cortelyou
was upon him and he rolled behind tho
line, score two points for Nebraska.
Zalusky kicked back from the 25-yard
line, Nebraska failing to return. The
visitors were penalized five yards. Ben
der gained five and another penalty
secured five more. The Cornhuskers
advanced seventeen yards to within two
yards of the goal. It was the third
down with one yard to gain, but Bell
was successful. Bender went around
right end for a touchdown. Ringer
failed to kick goal, and the scoring was
Knox kicked off to Benedict, who
made a good return. Benedict was
forced to punt on tho third down and
Knox failed to return. Knox failed to
gain and on the third down lost the
ball on a fumble. Nebraska had twenty-five
yards to make. Bender and
Mickel secured three, but tho ball was
again fumbled. Zalusky fumbled and
Benedict made a ten yard return. The
Cornhuskers pounded the line for
twelve yards and punted to Zalusky,
who narrowly escaped being pushed
across the line again. Knox imme
diately punted out of danger. Bender
and Mickel gained four yards and Bene
dict tried a place kick, but failed to
make goal. Knox punted again, and
Benedict made a good return. Nebras
ka advanced ten yards, but was held
for downs on the 15-yard line. Punts
were exchanged. Offside play gave
Nebraska five yards, and Mickel gained
five more. Mickel went through left
guard for a good gain. Bell gained two
yards, and Benedict thought It best
to punt. Zalusky was downed by Cor
telyou. He kicked out of bounds. Ne
braska held the ball within twenty-five
yards of the goal. The Cornhuskers
slowly advanced fifteen yards and Cor
telyou placed the pigskin on the 5-yard
line. Time was called.
The Second Half.
Benedict kicked off twenty-five yards.
Knox gained ten yards, but HopklnB
fumbled. Nebraska fell on tho ball on
the 10-yard line. Benedict was forced
to punt on the third down, with three
and a half to gain, kicking the ball
across the goal line. Knox kicked out
from the 25-yard line, and Bell and
Mickel made good gains, but the ball
was lost for holding. Knox began to
play ball, and Akerson made seventeen
yards before Benedict downed him.
Ten yards more were gained and luck
ily for the Cornhuskers the ball was
again fumbled. On the 40-yard line
Benedict punted, but the kick was
blocked. A CornhuBker fell on the ball.
Nebraska's back were falling to gain.
Benedict again punted. Akerson made
good gains for the visitors and Nebras
ka was penalized five yards. Knox lost
