1936 Idaho Vandals football team

The 1936 Idaho Vandals football team represented the University of Idaho in the 1936 college football season. The Vandals were led by second-year head coach Ted Bank, and were members of the Pacific Coast Conference. Home games were played on campus in Moscow at MacLean Field, with none in Boise.

Idaho compiled a 3–7 overall record and lost all four games in the PCC.

In the Battle of the Palouse with neighbor Washington State, the Vandals suffered a ninth straight loss, falling 0–14 at homecoming in Moscow on October 10.[1] Idaho's most recent win in the series was eleven years earlier in 1925 and the next was eighteen years away in 1954.

Future coaches among the Vandal players included sophomores Tony Knap, Lyle Smith, and Steve Belko.

This was the final season for varsity football at MacLean Field and its final game on November 21 was a Vandal win;[2] grading began on the new stadium site to the west in late summer, and it opened the following season as Neale Stadium.
