The 2000 Idaho Vandals football team represented the University of Idaho in the 2000 NCAA Division I-A football season. Led by first-year head coach Tom Cable, the Vandals were 5–6 overall and 3–2 in Big West Conference play.
Idaho played only one of their home games at the Kibbie Dome, an indoor facility on campus in Moscow, Idaho. The other three home games were at Martin Stadium at Washington State University in nearby Pullman, Washington.
In the Battle of the Palouse, Idaho defeated neighboring Washington State for the second straight year; the previous two victories in this series were 35 years earlier and also in consecutive years under different head coaches: 1964 (Dee Andros) and 1965 (Steve Musseau).
Two Vandal seniors were selected in the 2001 NFL Draft, which lasted seven rounds (246 selections).
