Nebraska 6
Illinois 0

Oct. 24, 1892 – Lincoln, NE

Nebraska got its first win over an out-of-state opponent as George Flippin’s early touchdown held up for a 6-0 victory over Illinois in Lincoln. There were hard feelings, however, as Illinois’ George Huff reportedly punched Nebraska’s Albin Jones in the face after the final whistle and disappeared into the crowd. Huff would serve as Illinois’ athletic director from 1901 to 1935.
