The 1934 Idaho Vandals football team represented the University of Idaho in the 1934 college football season. The Vandals were led by sixth-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 3–5 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 seventh straight loss, falling 0–19 in Pullman on November 10. Idaho's most recent win in the series was nine years earlier in 1925 and the next was twenty years away in 1954.
Calland resigned after the season in mid-December; he compiled a .412 record in six seasons on the Palouse, but his overmatched Vandals were just .167 in conference play, defeating only Montana. He returned to southern California and coached at San Diego State College; his successor at Idaho was Ted Bank, the backs coach at Tulane of New Orleans, 10–1 in 1934 and Sugar Bowl champions.
