The 1896 Michigan Agricultural Aggies football team represented Michigan Agricultural College (MAC) in the 1896 college football season. The Aggies compiled a 1–2–1 record,[1] although teams representing MAC had played two games against nearby Alma College a decade earlier in 1886, the 1896 season was the first in which MAC fielded a varsity football team for a full season of play.

The team opened the season with a 10-0 victory over Lansing High School on September 26, 1896; in the first intercollegiate game of the season, the Aggies lost to Kalamazoo College by a 21 to 0 score on October 17, 1896. The Aggies then played Alma College to a scoreless tie on October 25, 1896, before closing its season with an 18-16 loss to Alma on November 11, 1896, the 1896 Aggies had no coach.[2]
