The 1915 Georgia Bulldogs football team represented the Georgia Bulldogs of the University of Georgia during the 1915 college football season. The Bulldogs completed the season with a 5–2–2 record.[1] Tennessee-Chattanooga joined the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) in 1914, so the 1915 game was a conference game. Dur to the loss to Auburn, Georgia finished 3–1–2 in the SIAA.

The only blemish on in-state rival Georgia Tech's record was a scoreless tie with Georgia. John G. Henderson headed a group of three men, one behind the other with his hands upon the shoulders of the one in front, to counter Heisman's jump shift offense.[2]
