NEBRASKA 41, MISSOURI 0.
The Tigers Overwhelmed at Lincoln
and "ere Never tn the Game
After the Kick-Off.
"Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 30. (Special.) Nebraska university triumphed over Missouri on
the football field to-day, in the initial game
of the Western Intercollegiate Association.
The score was 41 to 0. Right at the outset
the local players demonstrated their superiority
and before the end of the first
half the contest became wearisome through
pure one-sidedness. The weather was perfect,
and the crowd large.
Nebraska took the ball on the call of
time and within six minutes had pushed it
over Missouri's goal line. A second touchdown
and goal were made in eight minutes.
The third came in ten minutes more and
as a fitting finale to the first half, Cowgill,
for Nebraska, kicked goal from the field,
making the score at the end of the first
half. Nebraska 23, Missouri 0.
The visitors played with more snap in the
second ralf and by a series of end rushes
got the ball dangerously near the Nebraska
goal but were forced back, the ball surrendered
and four minutes later another
touchdown and goal was scored for Nebraska.
The Mlssourians lost all heart in their
work from this on, and played wholly on
the defensive. One more touchdown and
goal for the locals ended the unequal struggle.
The game was happily free from slugging and
was won purely on its merits, Montgomery,
for Nebraska, being the only man injured.
The perfect training of the Nebraskans was
in contrast to that of their
opponents and to this more than anything
else is the else Is the victory due. The teams
