The 1914 Harvard Crimson football team represented Harvard University in the 1914 college football season. The Crimson finished with an undefeated 7–0–2 record under seventh-year head coach Percy Haughton. Harvard outscored its opponents by a combined score of 187–28, but tied Penn State and Brown.[1][2]
