LINCOLN, Nov. 29.-(SpccIal Telegram.) in ono contest today Nebraska Bcored moro points against tho giants from Minne sota than did cloven other college foot ball teams lu us many different games. Tho scoro-20 to 12-denotcs tho superiority ot tho Mlnnesotans over thu Nohrnsknns, but thu llgurca nro significant In still nnother way, for thoy show that tho ComhuskerB, ns tho visitors saw nt to call them, put up a harder light mid accomplished better results thun cither Chlc.igo, Wisconsin. Northwest ern or any of tho other teams that played Minnesota this year. Nebraska mado a brilliant but hopeless fight. It waB science ulono ugalimt a combination of science and beefs, ond tho combination won. Thero Is no question remaining as to tho Nebraakaus' ability. They nro unquestion ably among tho chosen. They played hero ically and their ambition to mnko a higher Hcoru against Minnesota than did any of thu great teams wns fulfilled. Coach Booth hail his men lu perfect condition. Their team work was fuultlens, for which largo credit Is duo to tho coach and to Captain Brew. The NebraBknns nro lightweights, averaging about twenty pounds less per mmi thnn tho Mlnnesotans, but even tho powerful lino of tho opposition was unablo to BUcccBsfully break tho defense. Most of Minnesota's; galna woro inadu by punting. Tho tackle back formation used with such telling effect by Yalo agalnnt Harvard and Princeton wa3 tried by tho lsltors. but without avail. Nclirnikn Held Well. Nebraska repeatedly hold Minnesota for downs nnd sevcrnl times when tho ball wns perilously near tho goal lino succeeded, with no npparent dllllculty, In regaining tho ball from tho opposing team. Thero was con siderable punting throughout tho gamo and in this play Minnesota excelled. Nebraska's punts woro all too high, while thoso ot Min nesota wcro low and long. In ono respect Nebraska was surprised. It wob anticipated that Minnesota's .ends comprised tho weale part of tho team, but tho first few mlnutca of play demonstrated that they were an atroni; ns any other part of tho team, Plllsbury, who was substituted for Cook a few minutes nftcr the gamo began, played a star game all tho way through. In tho first half no gained tho ball on a fake kick, eluded all pursuers and ran seventy yards for a touchdown. This was tho most spec tacular ploy of tho gamo. Plllsbury made tho two touchdowns for Nebraska and Ringer kicked both goals. Hoyt for Min nesota mado two touchdowns, Auno one and Knowlton kicked a goal from tho field, but all goals after touchdowns wcro missed. Tho gamo was witnessed by fully 5,000 persons; Minnesota rootcrn comprised one 11ft li of this assemblage. Thero wcro from R00 to COO pcoplo from Omaha. Tho Minne sota crowd left tonight on two special trains. Thoy aro jubilant over tho victory, but Bomowlmt disappointed at tho Bcore. This morning considerable money was wa gered nt tho hotels that Minnesota would score sixteen moro points than Nebraska and not a few bets wero mado that Nebraska would not scoro at all. This money, ot course, wa3 nil won by tho local crowd. Nehrnaka Kick Off. Captain Pago of the Gophers was the lucky man In tho tcB8-up nnd took tho south goal, glUng tho pigskin to Nebraska. Minnesota therefore had tho choice of posi tions during tho first half, tho ground bolng downgrade toward tho Cornhuskcrs' goal and tho wind blowing slightly from tho south. Ringer kicked off at 2:38 p. m. nnd Doblc cnught tho bull and carried It back ten yards beforo ho was downed. Vnn Val kenberg, the husky left hnlfback of tho Gophers, tried tho Nebraska lino, but failed to advance Minnesota nt onco began n, punting as well as a Uno-bucklng gamo. Knowlton lifted tho ball over Nebraska's head tor seventy yards, and throughout tho gamo proved a beautiful punter, except when ho tried to kick goal, NobraBka Im mediately Buncndered tho ball on a tumblo, suffering at Intervals all through by fum bles and off-side playing. Minnesota put tho ball Into play at tho thirty-yard lino on Nebraska territory. At this point they tried their first place kick for goal, missing by a scratch, the ball hit ting tho cast goal post and dropping out sldo. Nebraska kicked oft from tho twenty yard lino very poorly, netting them not to exceed ten yards. Rlngor's punts were too high In tho air and did not go far. At this point Minnesota gave tho first exhibi tion of tho superiority of beef over sclenco with light weight behind It. Steady galnH through tho line, aided by a flftocn-yard gain by La Frons, brought them within five yards ot tha Nebraska goal and Auno car ried tho ball over for tho first touchdown. Knowlton failed to kick goal. Score; Min nesota, ri; NobraBka, 0. llrlak KxchuiiKe of 1'nnta. Ringer kicked off from tho center.

Not loss of fifty yards to Nebntbka. Not gaining tha covetod amount Ringer punted and returned tho ball to tho center of tho field. Knowlton punted back and tho ball was caught down thu Hold by Crandall, who was downed In his tracks, Minnesota recovered tho ball on an otf-sldo play. Cook was Injured In a scrimmage and replaced by Plllsbury, who played tho otar gamo for Nebraska there after.
