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 would later become known as the Military Classic of the South.

The 1960s saw some of the Bulldogs' most successful seasons of football, with the program making its only bowl appearance in 1960 and winning its first Southern Conference championship in 1961.
