The 1916 Cornell Big Red football team was an American football team that represented Cornell University during the 1916 college football season. In their fifth season under head coach Albert Sharpe, the Big Red compiled a 6–2 record and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 165 to 73.[1][2] No Cornell players received honors on Walter Camp's 1916 College Football All-America Team.
