The 1900 Arizona football team was an American football team that represented the University of Arizona as an independent during the 1900 college football season. The team did not play any intercollegiate games, compiled a 3–1 record, shut out three of four opponents, and outscored all opponents, 131 to 6. The team's victories came in games against the Tucson Indian School (two games) and a Tucson town team. The loss came against the Phoenix Indian School.[1]

Ogro Kenneth Dunham,[2] a student in the school's Class of 1903, was the team's instructor when it reported for practice. However, he resigned as instructor to become a player. He was replaced by Professor William W. Skinner who became the coach. The team captain was Courtland F. Day, and Quin Anderson was the manager.[3] Prior to the 1900 season, the team's colors were changed from sage green and silver to blue and cardinal.[3]
