The 1904 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team was the representative of the University of Nebraska in the 1904 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

The Cornhuskers were rolling, coming off of two dominating undefeated seasons, the first of which consisted entirely of shutout victories with no points scored against Nebraska. The nation was beginning to take serious notice of the program in Lincoln. The team was also continuing to grow, now having a roster of 30 players.

After the season

After the record-setting 1902 and 1903 seasons, 1904 was relatively disappointing in its 7-3 finish. Nebraska's record game-winning streak (counting exhibition games) was capped at 27 this year. Coach Booth's overall career record at Nebraska fell to 38-6-1 (.856), while the program's overall record fell very slightly to 79-31-5 (.709).
