Kansas ..........  0   0   0   0  -  0
Nebraska ........  0   2  12   6  - 20

Nebraska dominated the second half, turning a slim 2-0 lead into a 20-0 Homecoming win over Kansas on a field of “slimy, black ooze” in Lincoln.

A safety on a Kansas punt attempt accounted for the only scoring in the first 30 minutes. Early in the second half, halfback Raymond Jobes’ touchdown run made it an 8-0 game, and end Clarence Swanson added a touchdown 10 minutes later and again in the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Harry Howarth’s punt returns helped provide the Cornhuskers favorable field position throughout the game.
