The 1927 Yale Bulldogs football team represented Yale University in the 1927 college football season. They finished with a 7–1 record.[1] Running back Bruce Caldwell was suspended after the 5–1 start. Although most selectors have named either Illinois or Georgia as the 1927 national champion, Yale was retroactively named as the national champion by one selector, the College Football Researchers Association.[2]
