Battle for valley crown is no contest
A much-anticipated showdown for the Missouri Valley Conference championship turned out to be all Nebraska as the Cornhuskers outyarded host Kansas by a staggering 532 to 78* and cruised to a 33-0 victory.
As the Omaha World-Herald put it, Nebraska pounced upon the ambitious Jayhawkers and did things to them that ought to be deleted by the censor.Nebraska scored on the first play of the second quarter -- a 45-yard touchdown pass from Loren Caley to Tim Corey -- and never looked back. Guy Chamberlin scored from the same distance on a third-quarter run.
The Lincoln Star's Cy Sherman called Chamberlin's performance the most spectacular of his career. The Cornhusker yearbook said Chamberlin was, as usual, the chief ground-gainer, but his work at carrying the ball was scarcely more spectacular than the interference of Captain [Dick] Rutherford.
*As usual in this era, yardage totals varied by source.
