The 1903 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team was the representative of the University of Nebraska in the 1903 college football season. The team was coached by Walter C. "Bummy" Booth and played their home games at Antelope Field in Lincoln, Nebraska.


Before the season

Coming off an undefeated season which also featured a full schedule of shutout victories, Nebraska was intent on showing that the previous year was not a fluke. The roster grew to 26 players, up significantly from 19 in 1902.

After the season

Nebraska wrapped up a second consecutive unbeaten season, its third overall, and had indeed become a feared power in college football. One newspaper writer of the time wrote "Nebraska occupies a unique position in western football. Too strong to find fearful competitors, the Cornhuskers can almost weep with Alexander the Great because they have no more teams to conquer."

At this point, Nebraska had a 24-game winning streak dating back into 1901 (including exhibition games). Coach Booth's record at Nebraska improved to 31-3-1 (.900), which also raised the program's overall record to 72-28-5 (.710). However, by being an independent program, Nebraska was unable to claim a conference title and was again snubbed for consideration for any kind of regional title.
