Nebraska 102
Creighton 0

Oct. 28, 1905 – Vinton Street Park, Omaha

“There never was such a slaughter of long-haired foot ball bruisers seen in Omaha. ... There is such a thing as being too ‘durn’ good, and that’s what Nebraska proved to be as compared with Creighton.”

That’s how the Omaha World-Herald described Nebraska’s 102-0 romp over Creighton, a game with so much scoring that it was a challenge to keep track of all the points – the newspaper put the Cornhuskers’ total at 103.

From the Lincoln Journal: “Nebraska had no difficulty in making the distance each time she had the ball. To the onlookers it became monotonous, but the enthusiasm was maintained to the end.”
