Who's Who?

Nebraska 0, Drake 14

LetterHE game with Drake University in the new Drake stadium at Des Moines was played in a blinding snow storm which made fumbles frequent and prohibited either team from displaying its football ability. The Drake Bulldogs, dedicating their new Memorial stadium, stood ready to take advantage of every break and seized the opportunity afforded by many Nebraska fumbles to win a 14 to 0 victory.

     Nebraska out-gained and out-yarded her opponents, making nine first-downs to the Bulldog's two. In spite of this fact the Drake team succeeded in keeping the ball in Nebraska's territory most of the time, scoring touchdowns in the first and fourth quarters and turning a Nebraska fumble into a safety for an added two points.

      Fumbling the icy ball time after time in the most critical moments of the game spelled defeat for the Huskers. A. Mandary played his usual game in the backfield.
