FACES A TRIO OF HARD GAMES
NEBRASKA WILL MEET COLORADO, AMES AND KANSAS
ON THREE SUCCESSIVE SATURDAYS
It CornhusKers Win These Games They Will Have Achieved
the Greatest Triumph in the History ot
Thp University of Nebraska football
team' began practlco ystbrday aftor
noon for the Colorado contest Satur
day, which is tho first of n trio of hard
games that tho Cornhuakors will play
on threo successive Saturdays. Thore
will not be any lot up In tho practice
until after these games.
No other Nebraska eleven ever
faced as hard a schodulo of threo sue
huskorB will moot Kansas at Lawrence
and from present prospects will bo
able to tako sweet revongo for tho Ig
nominious defeat of last year.
Each of these three teams lit strong
and ought to glvo Nebraska tho closest
and Young to their llno-up makes .tho
CornhusKers appear a Httlo stronger
than tho Aggies. Minnesota made
eight points on field goals against
each Nebraska and Ames and tho
Cornhuakers made a touchdown
against the GophoM, boating Arnds
scoring record against Minnesota by
flvo points. Tho manner in which Ne
braska mado her touchdown (on a
long run nftor tho ball had been fum
bled) gives tho Cornhuakors no groat
or strength In a comparison of tlib
two teams. It was such a touchdown
as even a weak eleven Is liablo at any
time to make on a real strong toam.

Caprpn dropped two field goals before
the first half ended, putlng Minnesota
in the lead.. Neither team was able to
score in the, socpnd half.
Weller kicked off for Nebraska to
Capron on Minnesota's fifteen yard
line. Falling to gain through the line,
Capron punted toC6ok' at mldfield.
Minor skirted for ten yards. Weller
s6on tried a drop kick which foil
Bhort, and Capron made a return of
twenty yards to Minnesota's forty-five
yard line. "
A forward pass went wild and No
braska was penalized fifteen yards.
Weller punted to Gapron, wTia return
ed twenty yards but dropped tKe ball.
Kroger picked up the ball and with a
Nebraska kicked off to Shuknecht,
Syho returned to Minnesota's thirty

kind of a rub. Of the trio Ames un
doubtedly Is the strongost and Is the
one most fpared by "King'J Colo and
his pupils. The Aggies have a fast
and powerful bunch and a week ago
were able to give tho Gophers a bad
scare, holding them to two field goals
a repetition of which exhibition Ne
braska gave Saturday.
The Bhow(ngs made by AmeB and
Nebraska in their respective games
with Minnesota give the Cornhuskers
a little 0ie bettor of tho "dope." SO
far as cdncorned defensive work and
ground gaining ability the two eleven's
appeared about equal. The fact, now
ever that NobraBka met Minnesota a
week later than Ames did and after tho
Gophers had- had another week's hard
practice and had been materially
strengthened by tho addition of Caso
On tho whole the Cornhuskers and tho
Iowa Aggies appear to bo' evenly
matched and the contest here a week
from Saturday promises to be one of
the greatest battles ever fought on a
Nebraska Hold. Ames has- some .won
derful players who undoubtedly will
keep Nebraska -guessing. Their quar
ter, Jensen, is a star, punter and la
one of the cleverest little football men
In tho west.
But before the Cornhuskers . meet
tho Iowa Aggies they will have to do
battle with Colorado and according to
present prospects will have to fight
Just as hard as they did against Min
