1960 Idaho Vandals football team represented the University of Idaho in the 1960 NCAA University Division football season. Led by seventh-year head coach Skip Stahley, the Vandals were an independent in the NCAA's University Division and had a 1–9 record. Two home games were played on campus at Neale Stadium in Moscow, with one in Boise at Bronco Stadium at Boise Junior College.
The Vandals suffered a sixth straight loss in the
Battle of the Palouse with neighbor Washington State, falling 7–18 at Neale Stadium in mid-November. In the rivalry game with Montana in Missoula, the Vandals lost the Little Brown Stein for the first time in a decade.
Since the disbanding of the
Pacific Coast Conference in the spring of 1959, Idaho had just one win per season as an independent. Stahley took on the dual role of athletic director in July.
Idaho played ten games, with five scheduled at night, and their only win came at
Hawaii. The game was scheduled for Friday night, but due to travel delays, it was played on Sunday afternoon.  The Vandals stayed on  Oahu until Thursday, then flew to California for their next game, against Pacific in Stockton on Saturday night.
