Out-played, out-gamed and out-
lucked, the Sooners went down to
defeat before the hard plunging
Longhorns at Boyd field Saturday
afternoon. The Texans uncovered
an aerial game that could not be
stopped by the Sooners and when
they tired of passing they circled
the ends and plunged over the line
for gains. On the defense they
were equally good, holding the
Sooners to two lone first downs
that were earned. The Longhorns
literally stampeded their way to
the 32 to 7 victory.
The Texans were slow to start,
but when they warmed up, Oklaho-
ma did not stand a chance. Only
once did the Sooner line show the
mettle it displayed against Nebras
ka. That was in the fourth quarter
when with one yard to go the Texas
backs smashed the line three times
only to be held for downs.
Ilammert Scores Touchdown.
The Sooners' offense was also a
bloomer as the only man who
could be counted on to gain and
gain consistently was little Pete
Hammert. The diminutive Pete
was good for a yard or more every
time he was called and by the end
I of the game he was worn out. He
was the tower of the Sooner game
on both the offense and defense. To
Hammert goes the credit of the
Sooners' only touchdown. That
came early in the game. With the
ball on Texas' forty-yard line, Ham-
mert circled left end and dashed

Bowles kicked goal.
touchdown. He again kicked goal.
Robertson also scored the last
touchdown of the game when he
circled around the Sooners' right
end for eight yards and a touch-
down. His kick was blocked.
The Texas team was one of the
best football machines seen on the
Sooner grid this season. A game be-
tween them and Nebraska would be
a sight well worth seeing. Hartley,
the star Nebraska full, would have
his hands full keeping pace with
Robertson and Llewellan could
never hope to hit a line like Patton
or run back a punt like the Texas
quarter. Ward, the big Texas tackle,
who could not miss a pass, would
not find a peer on the Nebraska
Tatton a Star.
Patton was one of the greatest
football players and field generals
seen in action this year. He hits the
line like a thunderbolt and skirts
an end like a scared deer. He was
the unnoticed star of the Texas
team. Robertson, too, would make
a valuable man for any football
team. His passing and kicking were

NEW YORK, Nov. 20.—The
Princeton Tigers, who displayed
throughout the current football
season all the unstable character-
istics of a stick of dynamite, as a
result are now firmly planted on
the pinnacle of the "Big Three"
From a strictly football stand-
point there Is really no reason why
they should be there, and the fact
that they are has given the football
world no little food for thought. It
seems that Bill Roper has succeed-

tho end of it
Chicago is still wondering what
happened in the last few minutes
of play and fair Harvard and glori-
ous Yale will stage the next "Big
Three" game to fight for the en-
vious title of runner-up.
Even though the Bulldogs came
out on the small end of the score
Saturday, they uncorked a brand
of football which should .stand as
an everlasting credit to the wear
ers of the blue. Yale had every-
thing but a score and outplayed
Princeton. It cannot be said that
they lost to a better team, but were
beaten by a combination of circum-
stances which cannot be controlled
by anything but destiny.
Although Harvard was undoubt-
edly weakened by the absence of
Captain Buell, the Crimson put the
strongest available team on the
field and lost to a better eleven.
The powerful Washington and
Jefferson team suffered its first de-
feat in two years at the hands of
Pittsburgh. It was a big surprise
to see the great W. and J. team
take a trimming, but when all is
said and done, they lost to a better
team and were treated a brand of
football that they could not dupli-
