The Thanksgiving Game Played in the Snow Before
A Crowd of Nearly 2000
Benedict Makes His Usual Long Run, Williams, Irwin, Kingsbury,
and Drain Distinguish Themselves.
The husky boys from lowu won tho
rhnnksglvlng game aim great is the
sorrow that fills tho hearts of Ne
braska's erstxx'hilo champion toain. The
scarlet nml cream was milled in. tho
dust by the old gold very much to tho
surprise of everyone, even of tho Iowa
enthusiasts themselves. All they
seemed to 'hope for was n close score,
ami such it was, li to 5, but that
six should be Iowa's no one dared so
much ns suggest.
Hut such is tho irony of fate and
though Nebraska could win from such
teams as Kansas, Missouri, Ames and
i)ener, she has lost to Iowa the last
game of the season. Nebraska en
thusiasts Who braved the cold and
snow saw a good game though they
felt almost to a man 1hnt the defeat
was unnecessary. Had Bruce, who has
proved himself a strong and heady
player in every game in which lie has
taken part this year, been played at
end instead of on the side lines the re
sult would almost certainly have been
different. Liebman utterly failed to
get into the game at any time. In
fact he has not shown good form at
any time this season and why the man
agement should retire a strong man
for the sake of again trying Lidbmcn
no one can guess.
Benedict, Williams, Erxvin, and Mel-
ford played their usual brilliant
games. Especially did li.w.ii lrain, at
. q.tnr'fjir, Vhstlng-u!r, "hluKvin ' -For
lown Griffith, Hobbs, Pence and
Shroeder did fine work. Iowa used line
old guards back play, which Kansas
tried against Nebraska to (her ever
lasting sorrow. Nebraska could stop
Kansas but not Iowa and the repre
sentatives of the old gold won with it
repeatedly. Iown's team work was
magnificientt The men worked to
gether like one great machine.
The crowd was good, nearly 2,000
people seeing the scarlet and cream
trailed in the dust. Only a few from
Lincoln were present, 'nowever,
probably not more than thirty.
The game was slow in commencing
owing to the tardiness of the Iowa
team, and after they arrived there was
considerable wrangling over the offic
ials. Nebraska won the toss of the
coin and chose the south goal with the
winu to thejr backs and giving Towa
the ball, nml at 3:44 the game was
started by Captain Hobbs kicking forty-five
yards to Erwin, who returned
for ten yards before being downed.
Nebraska did not seem able to gam
at first, as nfter Benedict had gone
for three Williams tried the right end
for one and igain with no gain and
the ball was Iowa's on downs. Wil
liam carried the ball from the guards'
back formation for one yard and the
same play again gave no gain, and
Iowa was forced to kick. A quarter
back kick carried the ball to Nebras
na's fifteen yard line with Nebraska
jiossession of the ball. illiams was
sent for one yard and Benedict for six,
and on the next play it was Iowa's ball
on a fumble.
S. C. Williams gained five on in
around-the-end play and Mortan four
' M Pennsylvania formation. Shrader,
Morton and Hobbs failing to gain, the
ball went to Nebraska on downs. Ben
fdiet carried for five, Williams and
Kingsbury for two each. Erwin or
three and Benedict for seven. Ne
braska was pushing right along now
ind gained whenever they chose. Wil
1 anis, Kingsbury and Pillsbury helped
along for fourteen yards, when the
ball stood for awhile and went to Iowa
on downs.
Williams circled the right end far
twenty yards and a double pass was
Mopped with a loss by Kingsbury.
Benedict stopped the next guard's
hack play with a two yards' loss and
Iowa was forced to kick. A quarter
back kick sent the ball in touch and
from the twenty-five yard line Erwin
punted for forty-five yards, which was
returned for Hobbs for fifteen yeards.
Williams could not gain and a quar
terback kick gave Nebraska the ball
fifteen yarcta further down. Erwin
