The 1893 Georgia Bulldogs football team completed the season with a 2–2–1 record. 1893 saw the Bulldogs play their first games against Georgia Tech, losing 6–28, Vanderbilt, losing 10–35, and Furman, winning 22–8. The rivalries with Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt continue to the present day, while the last game played against Furman was played in 1950. Today, the game with Georgia Tech is known as Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate.

One of the notable players on the team for the 1893 season was Blanton Winship, a law student at Georgia. Winship played tackle that year only, but went on to become a military lawyer, a veteran of both the Spanish-American war and World War I, the Judge Advocate General of the United States Army and the Governor of Puerto Rico.
