URBANA, 111., Oct. 3. (Special to The Daily Nebraskan.)
Bob Zuppke taught Ernest E. Bearg too much football when
Bearg was his assistant at Illinois, so the new Nebraska men
tor, who formerly was Zuppke's assistant, brought twenty
seven of his football players to Urbana today and walloped
the lllini 14 to 0 in the Illinois stadium.
To make the effect better, the Cornhuskers took the flash out
of "Red" Grange, Captain of th lllini, and held him scoreless,
almost gainless. At least, the lllini all-American halfback
was making no substantial headway.
In fact, Gallivan and Leonard starred
in the Illinois back field taking the
honors away from their captain.
It was the second successive year that
Nebraska has held Grange to no score,
a thing that no other team has ever
been able to do in the fourteen games
Grange has played. And, it was the
first time Grange has failed to score on
his home field.
Thirty-five thousand people, four
thousand of them boy scouts, admitted
to the game by the Illinois athletic man
agement, saw the downfall of Illinois
and the success of Nebraska. It wras the
largest opening crowd in Illinois history.
Nebraska's two touchdowns came as
the direct result of the failure of Zupp
ke's famous forward pass attack to
wrork on two occasions. Before the
game was five minutes old, Dailey inter
cepted Grange's forward pass the
first tried by Illinois and sprinted
forty-five yards for the first touch
down, shaking off two lllini tacklers in
his dash to the chalk line.
The second touch-down came as near
the end of the game as the first came
near the start.
Schols Intercepts Pass.
Scholz intercepted a forward pass
by Daugherty and Nebraska took the
ball on the lllini 40-yard line. Then
Rhodes drove off tackle for thirty
six yards; Capt Weir, on a tackle
around play gained three yards to
place the ball on the lllini one-yard
line, and Rhodes plunged through for
the goal.
Jug Brown drop-kicked both try-for-points.
Rhodes was the star of the Husker
backficld; in fact, he outplayed
Grange or any Illinois backf reld man.
The Nebraska full-back carried the
ball almost consistently, and, altho
his one run of 36-yards was his only
long sprint of the game, he rarely
failed to plant the ball further in the
lllini territory. That run, on which
he planted the ball on the
Illinois 4-yard run, was the prettiest
sprint of the day.
In the line, Raish, Hutchison, Capt.
Weir, Lawson, Stiner--in fact, all
Nebraska men deserve honors. They
played football every minute .of the
game, and their presence on the field
most perceptible. Brown and A.
Mandery did great defensive work for
the backfield.
Nebraska did not uncover much to
help opposing scouts, the Huskers be-
