On Thanksgiving Day, the Hawkeyes carried a 6-1 record into a game against Nebraska to determine the Western Interstate conference champion. However, a mixture of rain, sleet, and snow prevented any scoring, and the game ended in a scoreless tie. The weather did not allow for any markings to be made on the field and the crowd was able to make its way onto the field during play. It ended up preventing Iowa from scoring a touchdown. Iowa had the ball on the 1 yard line and the crowd assisted the Nebraska defense at standing behind them at the goal line. The Hawkeyes were unable to score. Little attempt was made to keep the crowd off the field, except when Nebraska had the ball. Athletic officials from both schools, therefore, agreed to replay the conference title game two days later on Saturday.
