The 1922 Georgia Bulldogs football team represented the Georgia Bulldogs of the University of Georgia during the 1922 college football season. The team had an 5–4–1 record and was the first Georgia team to compete in the newly formed Southern Conference, which was formed when a group of teams left the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) after the end of the 1921 season. This was Georgia's third and final season under the guidance of head coach Herman Stegeman, though he remained athletic director.

Tackle Joe Bennett and fullback John Fletcher appear on Billy Evans's All-America, "National Honor Roll". One writer states, "Prior to the 1960s, Bennett is likely Georgia's most outstanding tackle." Guard and captain Hugh Whelchel was All-Southern along with Bennett and Fletcher.
