The University of Utah Utes football team was started in 1892 and played three games that year. Although Utah did not field a team in 1893, it resumed played in 1894—once again playing three games. A different person acted as coach each year on a volunteer basis. However, the coach of the 1892 season is unknown.[1] The first known head coach was Robert Harkness who coached the 1894 season. He was followed by Walter Shoup in 1895, C.B. Ferris in 1896, Mr. Cummings in 1897, Benjamin Wilson in 1898, and Charles Gatehouse in 1899.[1] Utah's cumulative record for the decade was 9–13 (.409).

The 1892 season was the first season in history for the Utah Utes football team. They played three games that year in which the team was 1–2. However, only one game counts in official NCAA records so their official record is 0–1. Utah lost to Utah Agricultural College (now Utah State University) 12–0 in the first game of what is now known as the Battle of the Brothers.[2]
