The Citadel Bulldogs football teams represented The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina, United States. The program was established in 1905. Their primary rivals are Furman University and Virginia Military Institute (VMI). The games against VMI were dubbed the Military Classic of the South in 1976. The trophy for the game, the Silver Shako, was also introduced in 1976.

In the 1920s, the Bulldogs opened their new Johnson Hagood Stadium one block south of campus.
