The 1933 Idaho Vandals football team represented the University of Idaho in the 1933 college football season. The Vandals were led by fifth-year head coach Leo Calland, and were members of the Pacific Coast Conference. Home games were played on campus in Moscow at MacLean Field, with none in Boise this year.

Idaho compiled a 4–4 overall record and lost all but one of its five games in the PCC.

In the Battle of the Palouse with neighbor Washington State, the Vandals suffered a sixth straight loss, falling 6–14 on homecoming in Moscow on November 11. Idaho's most recent win in the series was eight years earlier in 1925 and the next was 21 years away in 1954.
