The 1913 Idaho football team represented the University of Idaho in the 1913 college football season. Idaho was led by ninth-year head coach John "Pink" Griffith and played as an independent; they joined the Pacific Coast Conference nine years later in 1922.[1][2] The two home games were played in Moscow, but off campus; the new MacLean Field opened the following season.

In the season opener in Spokane, Idaho whipped Gonzaga 54−3,[3][4][5] then posted a second-straight win over Washington State in the Battle of the Palouse, 3–0 in Moscow.[6][7][8][9]

Rival Montana was not played this season, and Idaho's three losses were all in Oregon, concluding on New Year's Day against the Multnomah Athletic Club in Portland.[10][11][12] With wins over Gonzaga, Washington State, and Whitman, Idaho was the champion of the Inland Empire.[13]

It was Griffith's penultimate year as head coach; he left for Oklahoma A&M (now Oklahoma State) in Stillwater after the 1914 season.
