Nebraska 42
Neb. Wesleyan 7

Nov. 8, 1913

Substitute quarterback Warren Howard's 60-yard touchdown run in the opening moments set the tone as the Cornhuskers routed Nebraska Wesleyan. Howard also scored on an interception return and connected with end Gordon Beck on two touchdown passes. A highlight for Husker fans was when guard Clinton Ross ran down a Wesleyan halfback who had broken free for an almost-certain touchdown. The game came four days after the NU athletic board declared that Ross, an African American, would play in the Nov. 15th Kansas game despite KU's objections.
