The 1961 The Citadel Bulldogs football team represented The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina in the 1961 NCAA football season. The Bulldogs were led by fifth year head coach Eddie Teague and played their home games at Johnson Hagood Stadium. They played as members of the Southern Conference, as they have since 1936.
