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. Min
nesota returned tho ball fifteen yards and
lost tho ball on a fumble, Weslovcr went
through tho Gophers' heavy lino for fifteen
yards and. Montgomery for ten moro, Then
Nebraska rooters took cheer and yelled.
But tho scarlet and cream upholders lost
the ball nn downs. They held tho big men
down on tho next two lino bucks nnd forced
another punt by Knowlton. Drain fumbled
on an attempted fly catch and Crandall
downed thn leather. 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. Minnesota mado steady gains to
ward their opponents' goal and Hoyt car
ried tho ball ovor for the second touch
dawn. Knowlton again missed goal nnd tho
score slood 10-0.
VeliruHka' l'lrt .Score,
Ringer kicked off for n galu of twonty
llvo yards. Minnesota seemed to bo sat
isfied with her success at punting and
Knowlton returned the ball for thirty
yards, This was repeated again by both)
