The 1901 Carlisle Indians football team was an American football that represented the Carlisle Indian Industrial School as an independent during the 1901 college football season. In its third season under head coach Pop Warner, Carlisle compiled a 5–7–1 record and was outscored by a total of 168 to 134.

Two Carlisle players received honors from Walter Camp on the 1901 All-America team: Martin Wheelock as a second-team tackle and Jimmy Johnson as a third-team quarterback.[1] Johnson was posthumously inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1969.[2]

Carlisle was one of three Native American schools in 1901 to field football teams that competed in college football. The other two were Haskell (6–2) in Kansas and Chilocco (2–5) in the Oklahoma Territory.
