made a splendid rush for goal, but Denver
was "prevented from scoring by tune being
In the second half Nebraska seemed to be
winded, Flippin and Johnston did good
work, but to no avail. Once the ball was
within a yard of Denver's goal, but was lost
to Denver and from that time on Denver had
it their own war. The ball went back, by
several rushes and a punt of De Witt's, till it
reached Nebraska's goal. Oliver then punt
ed it for thirty yards, but Denver got the
ball and scored, on rushes bT Field and a
goal. Score 12 to 4. De Witt now made
some pretty rushes as did Barton and Spauld
ing, the latter scoring another touchdown.
Field kicking goal. Score iS to 4.
Only a few minutes were left to play in
when time was called.
Pace and Tnhnson were hurt during the
game, Tlftf following are clippings on the
game from the Denver Republican :
"The best work for Nebraska was done by
Flippin, Yont and Johnston. The team
showed a lack of knowledge of the game
and a strange ignorance of aggressive rush
line pla The balks and now and then an
end rusher plaTing as a back, were given
the ball but neither tackles or guards were
even used to gain ground. Oliver's punting
was not very effective and Pace at quarter
is altogether too slow. They will have to
play a lower, harder and more snappy game
if they expect to defeat Kansas next week.
"There was not a single really good tackle
seen7 on the field. The play was not as
snappy as it should be. Compared with
Nebraska it was very sharp.
"Flippin is a stalwast colored youth, who,
b' his weight, strength and good playing,
gave Denver more trouble than any other of
the Nebraska team. He had a peculiar and
perhaps'natural habit of butting his opponent
with his head when interfering, and Berger,
whom he laid out several times, insisted that
the big fellow alwa's hit him in the stomach
with his fist.
"Nebraska manipulated the ball and slowly
pushed it forward, yard by yard. That
wedge of their's whirling about and sending
the man with the ball out with a rush at one
side, was a hard move to combat."
