The 1895 Army Cadets football team represented the United States Military Academy in the 1895 college football season; in their second and final season under head coach Harmon S. Graves, the Cadets compiled a 5–2 record, shut out five of their seven opponents, and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 141 to 32.[1] The Army–Navy Game was not played in 1895,[2] on November 2, 1895, Army lost to Yale by a 28 to 8 score in what one press account called the greatest and most exciting game of football ever played on the West Point grounds."[3]

No Army Cadets were honored on the 1895 College Football All-America Team.
