The Alberta Golden Bears football team has been in competition since 1910 and completed their 90th year of active competition in 2012. The Golden Bears have won three Vanier Cup national championships, in 1967, 1972 and most recently in 1980. The program has also won 18 Hardy Cup conference titles, second only to the Saskatchewan Huskies who have won 19 of them. The Golden Bears have also had two players win the Hec Crighton Trophy, with Mel Smith winning in 1971 and Bryan Fryer winning the award in 1975.

The Golden Bears have seen mixed results in the last decade as the team has made the playoffs in five of their last ten seasons. In four of those seasons, Alberta has reached the Hardy Cup, but come away with losses each time. Despite playing in the Hardy Cup in 2010, the Golden Bears finished winless in 2011 following the resignation of longtime head coach Jerry Friesen. UBC defaulted two wins to Alberta that year, but the following season was once again winless as the Golden Bears finished at the bottom of the standings.
