The Florida Gators football team represents the University of Florida in the sport of American football. The university fielded its first official varsity football team in the fall of 1906, and has fielded a team every season since then, with the exception of 1943 during World War II. The University of Florida did not adopt the "Florida Gators" nickname for its sports teams until 1911, and the early Florida football teams were known simply as "Florida" or the "Orange and Blue." The football team played most of their home games at on-campus Fleming Field until 1930, when Florida Field was constructed.

During the early 1900s, the Florida football team competed in the Intercollegiate Athletic Association of the United States (IAAUS), but was not affiliated with an athletic conference. Later, Florida was a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association and the Southern Conference, before joining with a dozen other schools to establish the Southeastern Conference (SEC) in 1932. Since 1992, the Gators have competed in the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS, formerly known as "Division I-A"), and the Eastern Division of the SEC.

The list below list presents the season-by-season win-loss records of the Gators football team from its beginning, including its post-season bowl records.
