Lincoln Neb., Nov. 21—This afternoon the Cornhuskers promenaded through the Bellevue team at will, making eleven in the first twenty-five-minute half and forty-one in the second half. The university line-up eloquently tells of the condition of the team, many of the old standbys giving place to younger men, who may be needed in the big games yet to come and were wanted in the line to gather a little experience. The work of the Nebraska line was ragged for a time on defensive play, but on the whole team did all that was expected of it and perhaps more. The lines was practically impervious of all stages of the game, but once Bellevue made a succession of excursions around the end which caused men to smile and wonder whether or not the university had not sent too many good men to the bench.
Nebraska opened hostilities by making two touchdowns, monotonously banging the line or circling the end. Bender missed the first goal, but kicked true on the second, and the score stood 11 to 0. Then Bellevue seemed to take an interest in the proceedings and made three end runs, which brought the ball to Nebraska;s twenty-yard line where it was lost upon an attempt to kick goal from field. The position was not good for such an effort and the attempt surely was a tactical error, for had the visitors kept up their steady progress in the way they seemed to know so well, a touchdown might have resulted and the mighty would have been humbled.
Nebraska then rushed the ball the length of the field in four plays but lost it upon a penalty after it seemed to have crossed the goal line. The half ended with the score 11 to 0 and with Bellevue showing up fairly well in the way of tackling and returning punts.
Nebraska is 3-0 all-time against Bellevue.
