The 1893 Tennessee Volunteers football team represented the University of Tennessee in the 1893 season. The 1893 season was Tennessee's third season as a varsity squad. The 1893 varsity team was to be the last until 1896 because the university "wanted to put emphasis on academics." The Vols went 2–5, losing the first five games.
