The team ended with a 2 - 2 - 1 record and a 1 - 2 record in the MIAC. The season scores were:

The game with NDAC was canceled.

The Scout reported that spring football is carried on each year at Concordia. It is the purpose of the coach to teach the fundamentals of the game. At the sessions in the gym, the graduating lettermen assist the coach in demonstrations. The outside work consists of work on the fundamentals. Spring football serves as a coaching school to graduating players. Prospective football coaches are given squads to develop under the direction of Coach Watkins.
