1904 National Champions

In 1904, Minnesota went 13-0 and outscored its opponents by an unthinkable total of 725-12 and shut out 12 of its 13 foes. The 725 points remain the second most ever scored by a major college football team (FBS) in a season, just behind Harvard's total of 765 set in 1886. Minnesota's 146-0 win over Grinell was the most lopsided margin in college football for 13 years. The Gophers established themselves as one of the dominant program in the nation during this period, owning a 35-game unbeaten streak from 1903-05.

The Gophers were awarded the 1904 national title by Billingsley while Michigan and Pennsylvania were given national titles by other organizations retroactively. All national titles prior to the beginning of the Associated Press wire poll in 1936 were decided retroactively by math formulas or historical resource groups.
