Kansas City, MO

After a 12-12 first half, Missouri gained the upper hand, in part by keying on Nebraska's George Flippin. The Nebraska State Journal's account of the unexpected loss in Kansas City was unforgiving: “The men seemed to be in a trance and played like a lot of misguided amateurs.”

This was the first time the two teams played each other. Missouri forfeited the scheduled 1892 game rather than play against the African-American Flippin.
