The 1906 Iowa State Cyclones football team represented Iowa State College of Agricultural and Mechanic Arts (later renamed Iowa State University) as an independent during the 1906 college football season. In their fifth and final season under head coach A. W. Ristine, the Cyclones compiled a 9–1 record, shut out seven of ten opponents, and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 268 to 30. The Cyclones won their first four games by a combined score of 194 to 0, and their only loss was to Minnesota by a 22-4 score.[1][2] R. E. Jeanson was the team captain.[2]

Between 1892 and 1913, the football team played on a field that later became the site of the university's Parks Library.[3] The field was known as State Field; when the new field opened in 1914, it became known as "New State Field".[4]
