The 1934 Howard Bison football team was an American football team that represented Howard University as a member of the Colored Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) during the 1934 college football season. The team was led by Charles Fremont West who returned for his second season as head coach after helming the team in 1928.[1] The Bison finished the season with an overall record of 4–2–2 and a conference mark of 3–1–2.

In December, after the season, the Negro Intercollegiate Athletic Association ruled halfback Paul Perkins was ineligible and that Howard had to forfeit its victories over Saint Paul's and Hampton and its ties with Virginia State and Morgan.[2]
