Nebraska fought stubbornly,
the team balance and ability
of the Hoosiers.
Led by All-America candidate
George Taliaferro and the haul
charging Harry Jagade, the In
diana eleven outplayed the Husk
ers in every department while
running rough shod over the Me
morial Stadium turf.
Indiana opened the contest and
advanced the pigskin to the Ne
braska 25 before the Huskcr line
held. But Nebraska's offense
sputtered and the Hoosiers again
backed the Scarlet to the goal post
shadows before Cletus Fischer
broke loose on a 32-yard scamper
up the east sidelines to midfield.
Once out of the rut, Nebraska
battled the Hoosiers on even terms
throughout the remainder of the
first period.
Jagade Scores
Taliaferro, Indiana's dusky
triple-threater, intercepted Del
Wiegand's pass at the quarter. On
four plays Coach Bo McMillin's
boys had racked up three succes
sive first downs and had the ball
on the Husker five-yard stripe.
After staging a brief goal line
stand, the Huskers wilted as
Jagade rammed over from a half
yard out for the game's first
Quarterback Rex Grossman's
placement was good to boost the
Hoosiers lead to 7-0.
When both of Grossman's kick
off attempts after the initial
touchdown went out of bounds,
the Huskers took over on the In
diana 40-yard line, but the Hoo
iers stymied Masterson's "T" guid
ed students and took over on the

fin corner and rolled into the end

Sparked by Fischer, the Husker
T warmed up late in the second
canto. Cletus intercepted a Hoos
ier fumble on the 46 then ad
vanced 39 yards on a pass from
Wiegand. With only seconds re
maining, James "Squat" Myers
