The 2001 Georgetown Hoyas football team was an American football team that represented Georgetown University during the 2001 NCAA Division I-AA football season. In their first season in the Patriot League, the Hoyas finished last.
This was Georgetown's first year as a football associate member of the Patriot League; the university announced it would switch its football affiliation from the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference to the Patriot League in January 2000, but competed as a Division I-AA independent that season, and did not officially join its new league until 2001.
Despite playing a league schedule, Georgetown was able to arrange matchups with only six of its seven league-mates, missing Colgate. Half of the league consisted of teams the Hoyas had not faced in decades, or at all. Georgetown had scheduled Bucknell on its independent schedule in 2000, and had faced fellow Jesuit colleges Fordham and Holy Cross as non-league opponents almost every year since 1996. But before 2001, Georgetown had last faced Towson in 1970, Lafayette in 1937 and Lehigh in 1925. The matchup between Georgetown and Colgate in 2002 would be the first one ever.
