The 1913 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team represented the University of Nebraska in the 1913 college football season. The team was coached by third-year head coach Ewald O. Stiehm and played its home games at Nebraska Field in Lincoln, Nebraska.[1] They competed as members of the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MVIAA). The 1913 season was part of Nebraska's 34-game unbeaten streak that ran from 1912 to 1916. This was the first season that Nebraska conducted a spring football practice session.[2][3]
