The 1892 college football season had no clear-cut champion, with the Official NCAA Division I Football Records Book listing Yale as having been selected national champions.[2]

On September 28 the first-ever American football game played outdoors at night took place, between Wyoming Seminary and Mansfield State Normal. The lighting situation proved difficult and the game ended at halftime in a scoreless tie.[3]
