) The 1893 Stanford football team represented Stanford University in the 1893 college football season. Led by C. D. "Pop" Bliss, Stanford was undefeated, with one tie against rival California.[1]

Season summary[edit]

The previous season, Stanford was coached by Walter Camp, who had agreed to coach the team on the condition that he complete coaching Yale's football season first.[2] For the 1893 season, Camp returned to the East Coast and Stanford hired C. D. "Pop" Bliss, who had played halfback for Camp's team at Yale and had just graduated.[2][3] Led by Bliss, Stanford dominated its opponents, outscoring them 284–17 with seven shutouts and only one blemish: a tie with rival California.[2]

This was Bliss's only season at Stanford; Camp returned to Stanford the next season and Bliss moved on to coach Haverford College.[2]
