The University of Nebraska men's lacrosse team is a club team participating in the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA), in the Great Rivers Lacrosse Conference. It was established in 2001.
The Nebraska club lacrosse team was created around 2001 with Randy Howard as head coach. It has seen a great expansion since its inception.
When the MCLA was formed, Nebraska was originally a Division 2 team, due to lack of campus interest. It moved up to MCLA Division 1 in 2008, now competing in GRLC Division 1, with its conference opponents being University of Iowa, University of Kansas, University of Missouri, and University of Wisconsin.
In 2009, Nebraska qualified for post-season play for the first time in program history, finishing the year at 9–4 overall, and 3–1 in the conference for a spot in the conference tournament in St. Louis. However, due to eligibility issues at the end of the season, Nebraska was disqualified from the tournament.
In 2015, under Rob Mazanec's second season at the helm, Nebraska finished with a 9-4 regular season record, and a 4-1 conference record. This was good enough to qualify for the GRLC Tournament for the second time in program history. The Huskers fell 8-5 to Miami (Ohio) in the first round.
