Before the season

Nebraska's new home playing venue, Nebraska Field, was opened this year on the grounds of the campus, to use in place of Antelope Field at the 'M' Street Park. Coach Cole entered his 3rd year at the helm of the program.

After the season

The season was shorter than in recent years past, having only eight games on the schedule, and was somewhat disappointing with only three wins recorded at the end of the year. Coach Cole's overall record after three years slipped to 18-7-3 (.696), dropping the overall program record to 111-44-8 (.706). Nebraska's Missouri Valley league 0-1-1 record for the season also dropped their overall league record to 3-2-1 (.583).
