The 1906 Georgia Bulldogs football team represented the Georgia Bulldogs of the University of Georgia during the 1906 college football season. The Bulldogs completed the season with a 2–4–1 record. Georgia’s only victories in the 1906 season came against Mercer and Auburn.[1] The season included Georgia's third straight loss to Georgia Tech and the seventh straight loss to Clemson.

This was the Georgia Bulldogs' first season under the guidance of head coach Bull Whitney.
