The Vermont Catamounts football program were the intercollegiate American football team for the University of Vermont located in Burlington, Vermont. The team competed in the NCAA Division I and were members of the Yankee Conference. The school's first football team was fielded in 1886. The football program was discontinued at the conclusion of the 1974 season.


Vermont fields a team at the club football level, in a conference that also uses the Yankee Conference name.


The first intercollegiate game in the state of Vermont happened on November 6, 1886 between Dartmouth and Vermont in Burlington. Dartmouth won 91 to 0. Vermont reached a level of success after coach "Dud" Drake in the 1907 and 1908 seasons. The 1907 team fought Dartmouth to a scoreless tie, and the 1908 team gave Cornell a scare.
