The 1915 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team was the representative of the University of Nebraska in the 1915 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 was already established as the winningest football coach in Nebraska history when he returned for his fifth year, having led the Cornhuskers to conference titles in every year of his tenure to date, and riding a record five straight conference titles overall. Nebraska was justifiably feared by every program in the nation, and this year the legendary Notre Dame football program would finally join in the fight with Nebraska on the field. With ten returning starters, the Cornhuskers appeared to be unstoppable.

After the season

Coach Stiehm concluded yet another conference championship season, going 5-0 for conference titles, handing the Cornhuskers an amazing streak of six straight Missouri Valley titles, an accomplishment never matched by any other conference foe, nor ever again repeated by Nebraska. Coach Stiehm departed the program during the offseason, but in his time with Nebraska he secured a career record of 35-2-3 (.913), the best career record of all Nebraska head coaches before and since. The program's overall record improved for the sixth straight year, to 153-47-11 (.751), while their conference record also improved again, to 19-2-2 (.870).
