The 1907 Army Cadets football team represented the United States Military Academy in the 1907 college football season; in their second season (first full season) under head coach Henry Smither, the Cadets compiled a 6–2–1 record, shut out six of their nine opponents, and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 125 to 24.[1] The team's only two losses were to Cornell and to Navy in the annual Army–Navy Game.[2]

Two Army players were honored by either Walter Camp (WC) or Caspar Whitney (CW) on the All-America team. They are guard William Erwin (WC-1, CW-1) and tackle Henry Weeks (WC-3, CW-2).[3][4][5]
