With the thermometers hunt
ing the zero point, and an ama
teur blizzard sifting .snow into
the eyes of players and specta
tors alike, Nebraska and Iowa
put up the prettiest game of the
season on Thanksgiving day.
The weather was what Univer
sity students are beginning to
believe is perpetual in Omaha,
miserable. The crowd was
consequently chiefly conspicuous
for its absence. About eight
hundred enthusiasts turned out,
however, and made themselves
disagreeable by surging in over
the field and spoiling several
good plays. Charlie Wilson
refereed and Lieutenant Wright
acted as umpire. No objection
could be made to either. The
teams lined up as follows. No
subs went in for either side :
Tyrrell right cml kft Johnston
Collins right tackle left Oury
Allen right guard left Wilson
Rogers center Hopewell

Iowa won the toss and took
the wind, giving us the ball. We
used the Princeton flying wedge
for about ten yards. The ball
went quickly to Iowa's ten yard
line on plays by Flippin, Little
Yont and Whipple, assisted by
splendid interference. The ball
was then fumbled and Littig
dropped on it. After a luie play
or two Elliott punted thirty-five
yards. Little Yont got the ball
in the center of the field. Flippin
made a good gain around the
end and Little Yont then ran
nearly forty yards for a touch
down, aided by excellent block
ing on the part of Flip and Big
Yont. Frank kicked goal.
Iowa started from the center
with a Cornell flying V and
made fifteen yards. Without
losing the ball Iowa pushed it
. over tbe line in eleven plays and
Rogers kicked goal.
We started with the double
flying wedge but only made five
yards. We then repeated Iowa's
last effort and made a touchdown
without losing the ball. Frank
missed a rather difficult goal.
Iowa made ten yards from
center on her usual opening.
The ball was lost on downs on
our twenty-five yard line. Yont
then made a splendid run of

sixty yards behind Flippin.
Oury made ten yards and
Flip and Yont short gains when
time was called. Score of first
half Nebraska, 10; Iowa 6.
In the second half Iowa got
forty yards to her credit in sev
eral plays and then fumbled.
Wilson fell on the ball and we
pushed it down the field for a
touchdown, Whipple punting
fifteen yards. We lost the ball,
I but soon regained it. Flippin

Iowa made her next touch
down in twelve minutes. We
had the ball a good part of the
time, however, Wilson having
dropped on another fumble.

for Iowa. Frank's
work at quarter was good but he
missed two goals. Wiggins
played a splendid game. Some
of his tackles were superb.
Whipple's punts, while not bril
liant, were sure. Oury and
Whipple played as men ought to
when all their friends are watch
ing them. Littig made the
prettiest tackles for Iowa. Wil
son keeps his eye on the ball
and is after it like a flash when
the other side fumbles it. Aid
