The 1894 Nebraska Bugeaters football team represented University of Nebraska in the 1894 college football season. The team was coached by Frank Crawford and played their home games at the "M" Street Park in Lincoln, Nebraska.


Nebraska's football team began its history as the "Old Gold Knights", and was also sometimes known as the "Tree Planters", "Nebraskans", "The Rattlesnake Boys", "Red Stockings", "Antelopes" or "Goldenrods" in their early years.

Before the season

For the first time in program history, Nebraska started the season with a returning head coach. Also for the first time, a pre-season exhibition game was scheduled against Lincoln High School. As the program grew, so did the roster, having increased from 17 in the first season, to 24 this year.

After the season

This was Nebraska's first ever conference championship, but the picture changed somewhat after the close of the season, as two-year Head Coach Frank Crawford left the post to become the head football coach for the University of Texas. Crawford's two-year record at Nebraska stood at 9-4-1 (.679), and the program's overall record was 15-8-2 (.640).
