The 2011 UMass Minutemen football team represented the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the 2011 NCAA Division I FCS football season as a member of the Colonial Athletic Association. The team was coached by Kevin Morris and played its home games at Warren McGuirk Alumni Stadium in Hadley, Massachusetts, with the exception of the second annual Colonial Clash, which was played at Gillette Stadium.

The 2011 season was the team's last as a member of the CAA, as they began their transition to NCAA Division I FBS play. Because of this, they were ineligible for post season play.

They finished the season 5–6, with a 3-5 record against members of the CAA. They did not occupy a spot in the CAA standings due to their transition to the FBS.

2 days after the final game of the season, head coach Kevin Morris was fired.
