The Saskatchewan Huskies football team represents the University of Saskatchewan in CIS football that competes in the Canada West Universities Athletic Association conference of Canadian Interuniversity Sport. The program has won the Vanier Cup national championship three times, in 1990, 1996 and 1998, all with current head coach Brian Towriss. The Saskatchewan Huskies became only the second CIS team to advance to three consecutive Vanier Cup games, after the Saint Mary's Huskies, but lost all three games from 2004-2006. The team has won the most Hardy Trophy titles in Canada West, having won a total of 19 times.

The 2006 Saskatchewan Huskies became only the third team to play in a Vanier Cup that their school was hosting, when the University of Saskatchewan hosted the 42nd Vanier Cup. The Toronto Varsity Blues were the first when they won two Vanier Cups in 1965 and 1993. Saskatchewan also became the first western school to host the national championship game.
