The 1920 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team was the representative of the University of Nebraska in the 1920 college football season. The team was coached by Henry Schulte and played their home games at Nebraska Field in Lincoln, Nebraska.


Before the season

Looking for stability after a rough couple of years prior, Nebraska had some vacancies to fill with the departure of several seniors to graduation over the summer. The season was easier than the unusually demanding slate of 1919, but contests with powerhouses Notre Dame and Penn State, and against high-profile Rutgers in New York, loomed ahead.

After the season

Coach Schulte departed soon after the conclusion of the season, leaving the Cornhuskers looking for their fourth head coach in just six years. Schulte's career record with Nebraska ended at 8-6-3 (.559), the third lowest in program history up to that point, for coaches on at least a full year or more. Nebraska's overall record fell to 174-60-15 (.729). Nebraska subsequently rejoined the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association for the upcoming 1921 season, ending two years of playing as an independent.
