The Nebraska Cornhuskers represent the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in rifle and compete in the Great America Rifle Conference. Rifle, although technically classified as a men's sport by the NCAA, is fully coeducational, with men's, women's, and coed teams competing against one another. Nebraska chooses to field an all-female team. Rifle got its start as an official sport of the university during the 1998–1999 season under coach Karen Anthony.

The team practices and has meets at the 10-point indoor firing range located in the Military and Naval Sciences Building (ROTC). The coach is Stacy Underwood who started in the 2012-2013 season. The team has had invitations to the NCAA tournament and has won two individual national titles.
