The 2006 Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders football team represented Middle Tennessee State University in the 2006 NCAA Division I FBS football season. Middle Tennessee entered the 2006 season coming off a losing 4-7 record (3-4 SBC) in 2005, which saw the dismissal of head coach Andy McCollum. The team's new head coach was Rick Stockstill. The Blue Raiders played their home games at Johnny "Red" Floyd Stadium and compete in the Sun Belt Conference.

The 2006 season saw a new coaching staff turn the Blue Raiders around from the losing record of the previous year, adding 3 wins to the total of the previous season. Also, that season saw the Blue Raiders play in their first bowl game, the Motor City Bowl, in the division I-A/FBS era.
