The 2010 VMI Keydets football team represented the Virginia Military Institute during the 2010 NCAA Division I FCS football season. It was VMI's 120th football season, which dates back to 1891.[1] In his 3rd year at VMI, the Keydets were led by head coach Sparky Woods, who became the VMI's 30th all-time football coach in 2008.[2] VMI plays its home games at Alumni Memorial Field, as they have since 1962.

After defeating Division-II Lock Haven 48–6, VMI was beat by William & Mary (45–0) and Virginia (48–6), and the following week defeated conference foe Presbyterian College 24–13 in the Big South Conference opener. They were defeated heavily by Stony Brook and Liberty in the next two weeks. The Keydets next defeated Charleston Southern 34–16, but ended the year on a 4-game losing streak, falling to Army, Coastal Carolina, Old Dominion, and Gardner-Webb. They finished the year 3–8 overall and 2–4 in the Big South.[3] The program has not had a winning season since 1981.[1]
