Coach Cole may have come into his 4th year with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. His first and second season teams had each contributed to improving Nebraska's overall program winning percentage, but the previous year's 3-3-2 final tally had been a setback.
Nebraska used this final meeting with Peru State as a tuneup practice game, playing backups and determining the starting lineup for the season. The Cornhuskers closed out their series with Peru State with a perfect record of 3-0.
Nebraska's stretch of frustration continued, as once again the Golden Gophers soundly defeated the Cornhuskers in Minneapolis, leaving Nebraska winless in the series since 1902. Minnesota's series lead increased to 8-1-1.
For the first time in the series, Denver traveled to Lincoln to face the Cornhuskers at home, but this game would also be the last meeting between the squads. Coming off the Minnesota loss, the team came together to function as a unit and also successfully implemented some new plays. The Cornhuskers finished out the series with another win and stayed perfect over Denver at 4-0.
Nebraska did not have as easy a time putting away Doane as in other recent meetings of the past few years, but still kept their win streak against Doane alive with the 6-0 win, owning the series 14-2.
For the second week in a row, Nebraska survived a hard fought and low scoring affair, escaping with a repeat 6-0 win. Nebraska secured at least a share of the conference title with the win, and took the lead in the series again, 9-8.
The Cornhuskers put up 24 unanswered points to secure their 4th straight shutout victory to close their abbreviated conference slate. The win secured Nebraska's position as sole conference champions, and moved Nebraska farther ahead in their series with Iowa State to 8-3.
Nebraska absolutely annihilated Haskell in coach Cole's final game, completely exploding for a record setting 119-0 victory, a team scoring and margin of victory record that has stood for one hundred years. The Cornhuskers piled up an astonishing 1,150 yards of offense, while Haskell managed only 67 yards in their 17 total plays in the game. Nebraska improved over Haskell all-time to 5-2.
After the season
Coach Cole went out in style with the record-setting 119-0 blasting delivered to Haskell at Nebraska Field.

Coach Cole's conference record ended at 5-2-1 (.688), winning a share of the 1907 conference title and winning the 1910 title in his final year outright.
