The 1926 Yale Bulldogs football team represented Yale University in the 1926 college football season. The Bulldogs finished with a 4–4 record under ninth-year head coach Tad Jones.[1]

Neither the Associated Press nor Collier's Weekly selected any Yale players for their 1926 College Football All-America Teams.[2][3] However, Yale guard Herbert Sturhahn was named a first-team All-American for 1926 by the All-American Board composed of three coaches, Knute Rockne, Glenn Scobey Warner and Yale's Tad Jones.[4] Sturhahn was also later inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
