The 1899 Georgia Bulldogs football team competed as a member of the SIAA for the 1899 college football season and completed the season with a disappointing 2–3–1 record. However, a season highlight was the third-straight victory over Georgia Tech. 1899 also saw the first meeting between the Georgia Bulldogs and Tennessee (a loss for Georgia). This was the team's first and only season under the guidance of head coach Gordon Saussy.

The 1890s saw the football program at Georgia get a good start. Through the eight seasons that the Bulldogs played in the 1890s, Georgia had a cumulative record of 23–14–2, a winning percentage of .615.
