The 1946 Drexel Dragons football team represented the Drexel Institute of Technology (renamed Drexel University in 1970) as an independent during the 1946 college football season. Ralph Chase was the team's head coach.
On November 9, Drexel was scheduled to play against Dickinson, however Dickinson was unable to play because a bus which had all of the team's equipment was erroneously sent to Pittsburgh. The error was discovered by the Dickinson football manager after the bus had left, and the bus was not flagged down until it had already reached Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. By that time, the bus would be unable to reach Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where the game was to be played, in time. As a crowd of 2,000 fans awaited the game, Drexel attempted to outfit the Dickinson team with their spare equipment, however was unable to do so due to a lack of pads. The game was canceled by mutual agreement.
