The 1912 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team was the representative of the University of Nebraska in the 1912 college football season. The team was coached by Ewald O. Stiehm and played their home games at Nebraska Field in Lincoln, Nebraska.


Before the season

Coach Stiehm returned for his second year at Nebraska following a not-entirely satisfying 5-1-2 first season, though it had resulted in a shared conference championship for 1911. The roster was smaller than recent past years, down to just 15 players.

After the season

Suffering only the one loss to Minnesota, which was seemingly an annual event of frustration, Nebraska finished 7-1-0 (.875) and perfect in-conference with the victories over Kansas and Missouri. As a result, the Cornhuskers were awarded the sole conference championship, which was coach Stiehm's second, Nebraska's second in the Missouri Valley Conference, and the program's seventh conference title all-time. Coach Stiehm's career record improved to 12-2-2 (.813), and the program's overall record improved to 130-47-10 (.722), while the Cornhuskers improved their MVIAA conference record to 9-2-2 (.769).
