The 1925 Wisconsin Badgers football team was an American football team that represented the University of Wisconsin in the 1925 Big Ten Conference football season. The team compiled a 6–1–1 record (3–1–1 against conference opponents), finished in third place in the Big Ten Conference, and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 131 to 50. George Little was in his first year as Wisconsin's head coach.[1][2] Little had been the head coach at Michigan in 1924; the Badgers suffered their only defeat of the 1925 season to Little's former team.

Steve Polaski was the team captain.[3] Halfback Doyle Harmon was selected by Walter Eckersall as a first-team player on the 1925 All-Big Ten Conference football team.[4]

The team played its home games at Camp Randall Stadium. The capacity was more than doubled for the 1925 season from 14,000 to 29,783.[5] During the 1925 season, the average attendance at home games was 15,118.[6]
