The 1919 Army Cadets football team represented the United States Military Academy in the 1919 college football season. In their fifth non-consecutive season under head coach Charles Dudley Daly (Daly was Army's coach from 1913 to 1916), the Cadets compiled a 6–3 record, shut out five of their nine opponents, and outscored all opponents 140 to 38.[1]

In the annual Army–Navy Game at the Polo Grounds in New York City, the Cadets lost to the Midshipmen 6–0. Army defeated Villanova by a lopsided 62 to 0 score, but lost to Notre Dame 12–9.[2]

End Earl "Red" Blaik was selected by Walter Camp as a third-team player on the All-America team.[3]
