The 1936 Florida Gators football team represented the University of Florida during the 1936 college football season. The season was Josh Cody's first as the new head coach of the Florida Gators football team. The highlights of the season included a 32–0 shutout of Stetson, a homecoming game win over the Maryland (7–6), and the Gators' only conference victory, over Sewanee (18–7). But the season was also remembered for the Gators' three 7–0 shutout losses to South Carolina, Kentucky, and Mississippi State. Cody's 1936 Florida Gators finished 4–6 overall and 1–5 in the Southeastern Conference (SEC), placing tenth of thirteen SEC teams in the conference standings—Cody's worst SEC finish in four seasons as the Gators football coach.[2]
