Battle of Season
Both Touchdowns Are Made in
Third Quarter Lohman
By Oswald Black.
The Iowa Hawkeyes pulled the trick
.nlBSt Nebraska to the tune of 12 to
0 on the Lincoln- gridiron Saturday
afternoon and proved their supremacy
In the grand old gnie of rough aml
tumbde. The Huskers put up a
mighty stiff battle and held the visit
ors to a zero score all during the
first half. The two touchdowns the
Hawkeyes were able to push over
came within ten minutes of each
" other in the middle of the third quar
ter. Both were terminations of steady
marches down the field. The first
was the result of a long forward pass
from Lohman to Reed, and the
other was shoved over by Ixhman
plunging through the line.
The teams seemed evenly matched
until the Hawkeyes forged out in
front toward the end of the game.
Lohman, the hashing halfback, an
oorod thp individual laurels for the
invaders and Hubka pulled the spot
light to his playing for the home boys.
Lehman carried the ball 95 yards of
Iowa's total of 214. He figured in
nearly half of Iowa's plays and did
most of the punting and forward pass
ing. Hubka showed up more clearly
in the last half. He advanced the
oval 70 of Nebraska's total of 164
yards from snapperback. - McMabon
came next in. line for the plums. ' He
'and Sykes, the Iowa left half, both
lugged the ball 55 yards nearer their
respective goals, while Scott, Schel
lenberg, llowarth and Slater, the
dnsky right tackle for the visitors,
gave good accounts of themselves. .
Small Crowd in Stands
The weather was ideal although it
lacked the crispness of the tipical
football day. The stands were only
partially filled when the Iowa team
romped out on the field at 2:15. The
band had reached there first and had
struck up the familiar old university
tones and had set the crowd in the
football spirit. Nebraska appeared a
few minutes later and both teams

After a punt by Nebraska and a fum
ble on the part of Iowa, the Corn

of the field. McMahon, Schellenlierg
and Hubka carried the war far into
the land of the Hawkeyes. They pen
etrated as far as the jwo yard line
and then the Iowa defence stiffened
and they lost the ball on downs. Lolt
man punted out of danger and after
several small gains, Hubka attempted

efforts to dispose of their goodies.

lineup remained unalterable but

place at halfback and Dana had been
substituted for Uoss at left guard.
