Nebraska university football for the eason of 1912 came fa a close yesterday afternoon when the Cornhuskers defeated the aggressive Oklahoma Sooner by the score of 13 to 9 on the heme Held. Although Nebraska carried the ball nearly three times as far .as Oklahoma, still the. brand of. foot-Kill exhibited by the Sooner was almost of the victory-bringing variety.' The referee's whistle which put an end to the game also put an end to a rally on the part of the visitor which might have given them the game. A chilling wind sweeping over the field from the northwest may have put life into the players but was decidedly uncomfortable for the several hundred spectators congregated about the field. The crowd did not near equal that of the Kansas-Nebraska gaum of last Hiituniay bill what the. spectators lacked in numbers they made up In enthusiasm. With the exception of the Minnesota game early In the season Nebraska exhibited the best football of the. fall. And it had to, for the aggregation from the south played the best football of any aggregation that the CornhUHkers have gone against this season with the exception of Minnesota. Although outweighed nearly lifteen pounds to the man, the Sooner fought back Inch fur Inch and not a point was gained by .Nebraska which was not earned. Captain Frank of Nebraska, whose work during the season has been of the sensational variety, played hit lust fume of football yesterday afternoon nd he played It well. However, It was Mulligan, Nebraska' fullback, to whom honors for the game must be given. Yard after yard was mado by that llne-plunglng Individual and It was he who scored both Nebraska touchdowns. Courtrlght for the visitors was very much In evidence during the game and all of the nine points of the visitor were scored by him. His touchdown was, the first score of the game. A prettily executed goal from placement by i 'ointrlght at the close, of the third qtarter made the total of bine points lor tho visitors. Back to Old Game. Nebraska played consistently. Old style football was Its whole gume. Unlucky fumbles and Inability to exocute the forward pass at tha critical moments contributed to Nebraska's, low score. Once the ball was on the Sooner three yard line when 1'otter, who re-I laced Towle, attempted a forward pass, but the pass was uncompleted. Another time Towle, with the ball on tho Oklahoma Ave yard line, was forced to resort to the same play and again it was unsuccessful. For distunce Nebraska relied almost entirely upon the plunging of llalligan and Purdv. the clover off tackle runs of Frank and the tackle around play. By their superior wemm me .-eurasaa rorwartls crushed the plucky Oklahoma linemen while the back went 'through fur consecutive galna, liecause of their Inck of weight the Boonera relied almost entirely upon he more open game. Forward passes were worked consistently and well. One for thirty-five yards to which Cap-ahnw, Soonet half, added ten more Sards was executed as the Vcferce t ailed time on the contest. Another for thirty-five yards, Reeds to W. Clark, carried the bull to the Nebraska ten Yard line. fri.m n-hliv i,,tn 1 1, i il. I rtoma went over for its only touch-iown. A third pass which netted the Pooncrs thirty-five yards went for naught when Courtrlght, who caught the ball, fumbled when tackled. The game was one of the cleanest of the season. All penalties were called Tor offside play and both sides mif-Tered alike. Not tho leusl rough piny of any sort was evident durlmr the game. The visitors were as plucky in defeat as they were in action and at the close of the contest they gathered In front of the bleachers and rendered the famous U-C-l'-N-t yell with a vim. The action of the Sooner was met in kind by the Nebraska men who, not knowing Cie Oklahoma yell, gave vent to their feelings with cheers Individually and collet-lively for the whole Oklahoma team. Tam Play Throughout. The exhihit.on of play- by-both teams was devoid of stars. Frank for X' ..i, t nona iiiiivit- D.rvi7itti (tiU IU!1H OU off tackle plcys but his work was ro better than that of llalligan, who plunged thnug the lighter Oklahoma line for good distance. I'urdy at half, although crippled, stayed In the whole game and demonstrated the fact that he was something of a punier. The line put up the bent exhibition o' the season and the plunge of the backs were largely responsible to the for-warda' work In opening holes. Mulligan, who started the same in Howard position at end, played good ball during the part of the game he was In action. Maslln and Howard both played good defensive games. Towle waa in quarter three periods and le- Idea advancing the ball several yards on offense he contributed the brains of Nebraska's advance. For the visitors Courtright made good hi previously touted reputation Speed waa his forte and he exhibited It on several occasions somewhat to the chargrln of Nebraska. Heeds at fullback did good work in advanclnc the bell and In punting, Capshaw, who replaced Lowry at half In the last end of the game, captured the prettiest pas of the game when he reached high Into the atmosphere and pulled down the heave of Heed with one hand. G Clark and Holland on the Sooner ends were redoubtable in defense. The forwards, although handlcaped by the uperlor weight of Nebraska, contested rvery Inch of Nebraska's gains. Tha Play in Detail. Oklahoma won the toss and Pearson kicked off for Nebraska. Courtright made a return of 20 yards. After fall-tire to make gain. Oklahoma kicked.

With line bucks by lfalllgan and Towle, and a 36-yard run by Frank around right end, the ball wa worked dangeroualy close to Oklahoma's goal line, and Malllgan on a line buck carried It over. The klckout fulled, and the score stood 6 to . Nebraska continued her aggressive tactic anil made good use of her weight advantage, crowding the visitors by line plunges. The ball was being worked steadily down the field for a touchdown when Purdy fumbled on the Oklahoma IQ-ynrd line, Court-right raptured the ball and making a spectacular return for 25 yards. Line plunges were then the rule, alight gain being made. The second period ended with the acore tied, t) to 6. Th Bscond, Half. In tbe beginning of the third period NebrMaka continued on the agresstve and her advantage In weight was made to count. Frank caught the bull on the kickoff and made a return of 30 yards.

Nebraska's weight was showing up strong and the ball was worked steadily toward the Oklahoma goal. It was Nebraska's ball on he Oklahoma 7 yard line when a mistake proved disaatroua to the Corn-hiiKkers. Potter essayed a forward pass wheiv line plungea looked excellent for another touchdown, and the forward pasa failed. Oklahoma then carried the ball to the Nebraska 2E-yard line, using the forward pass with good effect. From the 25 yard line Courtrlght kicked ft field goal, making the score III to 9. In the last period Nebraska had the belter of It at the start, but the Oklahoma showed an undaunted rplrlt and cams back strong, Nebraska tried a few line plunges by llalligan and Howard, making good gains, and Towle on an end run traveled 20 ynrda.

CH iMPIONS OF EAST HARVARD WINNER OVER TALK BY A WIDE MARGIN. THE FINAL SCORE 20 TO BI.I'E FORMATIONS SOLVED IOST AT OVTSET. Hew Hat-en Men Hardly a Factor In the Game Until Closing; Pa-rlod Halfbaek Brlcklcy Again the Star. NEW HAVEN, Conn.. Nov. 23. The crirrieon triumphed over the blue on Tale field today, when the Harvard eleven, taking advantage of , Tale's back field errors, made two touchdowns and two field goals, and rolled up a score of 20 to 0 over their ancient football rivals. This victory carries the football championship of the east to Cambridge. Harvard scored a touchdown, and a field goal in both the first and third periods. The first score came w hej storer recovered the ball which Wheeler, the Yale quarterback, dropped on being tackled, and sprint ed nearly five yards to the goal line. Hardwlck kicked the goal. A minute later another Yale muff gave Brtckley his chance to kick the first field goal. a mmuie oy tiynn at tne opening of the third period gave the ball to Harvard, and In the scrimmage Brlckley dashed eighteen yards for the second touchdown. This same player caught a Yale forward pas a minute Mater and ran -forty-two yards and after a few plays, ' booted the ball over the cross bar for the second field goal, Yale Strong at tha Finish. Yale was not a factor In the game except negatively until the final period. Then the crimson line began to yield to the battering, anu the blue-legged players, reinforced by substitutes, drove the ball by line plunges and a wing shift formation to wituin eight yards of Harvard's goal. There Yale became too conlnk-nt of its rush ing ability and lost the ball on downs. A few minutes lator Pumpelly. standing- on Harvard's thirty-five yard line, was prepared to attempt a field , goal when the official's whistle ended the game. ' After finding the Yale back had a most unstable proposition in hnndlingV punts, Harvard aoopted very little et-- fort to test the strength of the bin,- line. The Harvard offense was based ' almost entirely in getting down the field under Felton's high spiral puntu and taking advantage of the slippery fingers of Wheeler and Flyi.n. Had the Harvard ends been as fleet as Bonielster, who played a remarkable duwn-the-fleld game for Yale, the score might have been larger. Iu the second period, Vale dropped four Harvard punts in succession, but neither Hurdvvick nor O'Brien could recover them. On the other hand,"' only one such error was adopted Jy , Harvard nnd that Yale could not turn to advantage. Yala Defense With Two Men. What the- score might have been bad not Homelster and Ketcham shown such speedy work in nailing Harvard backs and breaking up the crimson offense, was a matter for speculation tonight. The entire Yale defense seemed to rest on these two players, and when Bomegiter was taken out In the second period, the crimson offense nanln li,,,,. i,a... awpaaaliri, III, 1 1 ' ,1 seht in again in the third period tpr stem the crimson tide, but was up-equal to the task. f On tli other hand, the playing of Flynn and Wheeler was a keen disappointments to the blue grandstands. Every time Felton sent one. of his punts sky-rocketing into the air, a shiver went through the Yale stands when they saw cither of these two players start to catch the pipskin. After several brilliant runs around the Harvard ends for gains which seemed long, but proved short, Flynn was led from the field in tears to give way to a fresher man. Yale tried two other quarterbacks In prace of Wheeler, but was finally compelled to send the light-haired player back for tbe final period. Then he distinguished himself by getting more .snap Into the blue attack, which meant sixty yards In successive rushes, the longest consistent inarch by scrirrlniaging of either team. This Yale offense, which developed so strong In the last moment, was l-ased on the .Minnesota wing shift which the blue team executed with speed and precision and took the ball to within the shadow of the goal posts. Wheeler ordered one man dash against the Harvard line. Tho crimson line, which had been giving -way. waa -reinforced by fresh men and the hall was taken from Yale on downs cigh'. yards from the goal line. On Dramatic Incident. Perhaps the most dramatic Incident of the game came a few minutes later when Pumpelly, the hero of the Yale-Princeton contest, stood waiting on Harvard's thirty-five-yard Ilne, with utstretched arms, eager to repeat Jits performance against the Tiger. . Wheeler was indecisive In giving VHf cianals. and before Ketcham could throw back the ba 11 thc-f ina b- whist le - sounded. "The" Harvard victory was very grat- ifying to the 17,000 ardent supporters of the crimson. The Cambridge team as a whole was considered the best ever developed it Harvard, whose charging qualities were powerful and Its speed unusually fust. As in all this season's games, the brilliancy of Brickley's running and goal-kicking outshone the Individual play of his teaminntes. HI line plunges were nearly as effective as the work of Captain Wendell, twice placed at the head of tbe so-called nil-American backs. Brlckley twice Intercepted Yale forward passes, one of which he turned into a run of forty-two yard. The second touchdown was due solely to his apeed down the field and a keen eye In re- covering Flynn's muff, which he converted into a touchdown in the next scrimmage. Brlckley scored two out of his four attempts at field goals and missed the other two by a few feet. Wendell a Good Leader. Captain Wendell led his team with spirit and decision, encouraging the crlmapn players when they ahowed sign' of faltering, and uaing every pound of hi strength in plowing repeatedly in the Yale line. 1 na crimson eleven a attack waa directed by Gardner, along linea which.
