N;Ui.ial;u overwhelming! di-iVmed
South Dakota Saturday, wiping out
the memories of the humilinliim .score
of hist your when the CoyoU'.s held the
Co-nh jokers to a single drop Kick.
Straight, liurcl football was played
thiouhout, no trick plays, forward
pusses or fancy plays belli; used by
tlio Nebraska team. The Corn busker
backs plunged through tackles, guards
and centor successively ' with a wont
many sprints nronnd the ends. The
brilliant work of Captain Weller was a
feature of the game, whose nuig
nlucien punting and all-around offen
sive and delenslve work tormed a
chief factor in Nebraska's victors.
The team showed a marked improve
ment, over that of the Peru game, each
man working in co-operation with his
mates, and all working together.
For the first few minutes the visit
ers put up si strong defense, which waa
quite unexpected, and threatened to
hold the Cornhuskers to a low score.
The constant hammering attack of
Colo's men soon wore the Dakotaus
out and the Cornhuskers scored rapid
ly. However, the Coyotes placd hard
and In the second half took a brace,
carrying the ball by successive line
plunges and end runs within' the shad
ow of Nebraska's goal, where they lost
the ball on a forward psiss, on the
twenty-live yard line, thus losing their
only opportunity to score.
The first touchdown was made by
Mnrwy on a fluke, Weller having punt
ed to Simpson, who dropped the ball
which was knocked across the goal
lino by Matters.
Latten kicked oft' to Heltzer who re
turned the ball 15 yards. A short'punt
by Weller and a fumble by Coffey gave
Nebraska !!5 yards. ChaloupUa tore
off two .yards through tackle followed,
by a similar advance by Matters. Kro
