LINCOLN, Nov. 19 — (Special) — Eleven
agricultural students from the Iowa Agricultural college at Ames came to Lincoln today to play foot ball with the boys
of the University of Nebraska. The visitors
played a good game, the best that has been
played in Lincoln this season, but they
couldnt score much. They crossed the line
only once, and then couldnt kick the goal.
The final score was: Nebraska, 12; Ames, 4.
It was done something in this fashion:
Nebraska won the toss and chose the east
goal, having the advantage of a stiff northeast wind. Ames kicked off. Nebraska
punted on the first play. Ames at once lost
on downs, but Nebraska could not hold the
ball. Ames did the most of the playing for
a minute or two, and then Nebraska got the
ball on a forward pass. Thorpe punted
fifty yards, sending the ball over the touch
line and an Ames man putting the Nebraska
players on side. Benedict knocked him down
and Wiggins fell on the ball. This was a
touch-down for Nebraska. Thorpe kicked a
Ames made the next touch-down, and did
it by straight, hard line-bucking. They
took the ball at Nebraskas 15-yard line
and never lost it till they sent Wilson over
the line. Hammer missed an easy goal.
Score: Nebraska 6, Ames 4.
The first half ended without further scoring. The ball was in Iowas hands and
thirty-five yards from Nebraskas goal.
In the first half Ames clearly out-played
Nebraska in every way, but in the second
Nebraska braced up. Both sides fought
hard and the battle extended from one end
of the field to the other. Back and forth
they went, each side losing the ball repeatedly on downs. Nebraska scored once more.
The teams were on Ames 35-yard line
and Thorpe punted fifteen yards. Wiggins
caught the ball on the run and carried
it over the touch line. It was one of the
most neatly executed trick plays ever attempted here. Thorpe kicked goal. Score:
Nebraska, 12; Ames 4.
The game ended at 5 oclock, the ball
being in the center of the field and Ames
having just lost ten yards by a neat tackle
of an end run. A miserably small crowd
witnessed the game, but those who stayed
away missed a great treat. Nebraska was
lame behind the line. Packard played a
fine game for Nebraska. Wilson did the
most of the work for Ames.
