THE COURIER-JOURNAL, LOUISVILLE, SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 31, 1937. SECTION 5 Nebraska, Completely Outplayed By Indiana, Gains 7-0 Decision 4 Husker Run In 1st 17 Seconds Gives Victory Dodd Distances Field to Plant Leather for Winning Marker Fi jiii res Favor Hoosiers In All Except Score Lincoln, Neb , Oct. 30 (U.R The game was only 17 seconds old, and the echo of the referee's starting whistle scarcely had died away, when Nebraska's Cornhuskers shook loose a halfback on a long touchdown nm today to defeat a favored Indian eleven 7-0. Hundreds oi the crowd which later swelled to 37,000 2d largest in Nebraska history still were hunting their seats when Jack Dodd broke off left tackle and, with 3 blockers clearing his way, blazed 65 yards for a score. Lowell English booted the extra point to make it 7-0 and that was the ball game. Revives Rose Bowl Talk. The victory, achieved in amazingly warm weather for this prairie section in late October, kept Nebraska riding along with the select group of major teams which have not been defeated this year, and revived the Kose bowi ' talk that flared after the Corn-! If-!-huskers had opened their 1937 -1- 111 A CHo program with a win over mighty Minnesota. It was Drdri"s electrifying run, on a shovel pass from Quarterback John Howell, that won the game for the Cornhuskers and it was the magnificent play of the line that saved it. Saved it, not once, but half a dozen times as Indiana roared up and down the field. But each time the Hoosiers, appearing very sinister, indeed, in their pants and jerseys of midnight black, moved into the scoring zone, the Cornhuskers line reared up rind hurled them back. The big boys from the plains made their most stirring stand late in the 2d period when Indiana, passing and plunging, moved to w;thin 8 yards of a score, with 4 tries for a touchdown. The Hoosiers found the enemy line in vulnerable, and lost the ball without having advanced more than a yard. The figures show how lustily Nebraska had to defend throughout mo?t of the afternoon. Indiana made 14 first downs against 2, outgained Nebraska by a ratio of 4 to 1 rushing, and completed 11 passes against 2 for the Cornhuskers. Indiana, in fact, led in everything but touchdowns and yards lost by penalties. UV.- 7' yV V- fl 17-- - Villanova Hands Detroit First Loss 7-0 IAP Wirephoto.

Western Kentucky got a break in the first quarter when Kribs fumbled on his 38 on a punt. Cooper recovered. On the first play Bibich swept wide around right end with good interference and ran 38 yards for a touchdown. Gili added the extra point.

The Pioneers registered 7 first downs in the first quarter and on 3 occasions shoved the ball down to Union's 3-yard line but lost it on downs each time. Mississippi State roundly outplayed the Gents in the first 2 quarters and was kept from scoring largely by the splendid work of Jack May, Centenary center, only recently promoted to the first team.
