Northrup Field, Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 15 — Completely outclassing their sturdy opponents from the state of Nebraska in every department of the gridiron game, Minnesota’s Gophers yesterday afternoon administered a stinging defeat to the husky Cornhuskers on Northrup field, winning 27 to 0 in a game marked by some of the best football the Minnesota eleven has ever shown.
The Cornhuskers, although fighting for every inch of ground and winning many admirers for their nervy and game style of play, were not in it for a single moment with the machine built up by Dr. H. L. Williams, the Minnesota coach, and directed in masterly style by Captain Lisle Johnston and Quarterback Johnny McGovern. The Nebraska were outkicked, out-charged and out-witted and they were unable to gain with any frequency through the Minnesota line or around the Minnesota outposts, and their forward passes, even when successfully pulled off, netted only small gains because of the alertness and activity of the Minnesota defense. A number of the Nebraskans’ players were choked to death in their extreme youth because of the splendid work of the Minnesota linemen, Walker, Plokering, Bromley and the rest getting through the Cornhusker advance guard and spoiling or destroying the Cornhusker method of offense before it was well under way.
Nebraska is 25-32 all-time against Minnesota.
