The 1894 Maryland Aggies football team represented the Maryland Agricultural College (now the University of Maryland) in the 1894 college football season. Maryland participated as a member of the Maryland Intercollegiate Football Association, which was formed as a result of a disagreement the previous season over whether Maryland or St. John's College deserved the state championship.[1] The Aggies finished the season with a 4–3 record.[2]

The following year, the football program was temporarily disbanded until the 1896 season.
