The 1924 Idaho Vandals football team represented the University of Idaho in the 1924 college football season,[1] and were led by third-year head coach Robert "Matty" Mathews. It was Idaho's third year in the Pacific Coast Conference and they were 5–2–1 overall; their 4–2 record in conference led the PCC in wins.

Home games were played on campus in Moscow at MacLean Field, with one in Boise at Public School Field.[2] Conference champion Stanford was played at Multnomah Field in Portland, Oregon.

Idaho defeated neighbor Washington State again in the Battle of the Palouse,[3][4] the second of three consecutive wins over the Cougars in the rivalry.

The four PCC wins were the most ever for Idaho; their next best total was two, achieved six times, last in 1938.
