1906 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team

The 1906 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team was the representative of the University of Nebraska in the 1906 college football season. The team was coached by Amos Foster and played their home games at Antelope Field in Lincoln, Nebraska.


Before the season

New coach Foster arrived to replace previous coach Walter C. Booth, after compiling an 11-4 record in two years coaching for the University of Cincinnati.

New rules going into effect this year significantly changed the way the game was played, including an increase in the distance required to get a first down to ten yards, and also that an incomplete pass would be considered a turnover. Nebraska's existing schemes were not built around these new rules, and bringing in a new coach also unsettled affairs somewhat going into the season.

After the season

Coach Foster only made it through this one year before moving on. His previous coaching job was again offered to him, but he instead passed that post up and went to coach for Miami University in Ohio, where he compiled a 13-1 record in his two years there.

Foster's one-year Nebraska record of 6-4-0 (.600) caused a slight drop in Nebraska's overall program record, which fell to 93-37-5 (.707).
