The 1895 Minnesota Golden Gophers football team represented the University of Minnesota in the 1895 college football season. It was the only season under head coach Pudge Heffelfinger.

On January 11, 1895, the Presidents of several schools met in a preliminary meeting and formed a group which would become the Intercollegiate Conference of Faculty Representatives, known today as the Big Ten Conference.[1]:14

As a result of this emerging conference, this season would be Minnesota's last season as an Independent. Minnesota won its first ever match with Chicago with a last minute touchdown to win a very close, physical game by a score of 10-6.[2]:26 Financially, the team rebounded from some lean years. They "secured a large subscription from the business men of the city, the attendance at all of the games was good, and at the close of the season there was a large surplus in the treasury."[2]:26
