Oct. 6, 1899

Nebraska's season got off to a dreadful start in Ames as Iowa State dominated from the get-go, scoring in the first two minutes and running up 28 points before halftime.

The newspaper accounts don't quite agree on the final score, but they do agree that Nebraska's line was porous on defense and that the snaps from center to quarterback resulted in numerous fumbles.
