The 1919 Detroit Tigers football team represented the University of Detroit in the 1919 college football season. Detroit shut out five of its nine opponents, outscored all opponents by a combined total of 257 to 30, and finished with an 8–1 record. James F. Duffy, who had led the team to an 8–1 record in 1917, rejoined the team as head coach after having served in the military during World War I. The team's sole loss was by a 7 to 3 score against Tufts.[1]

Several players from the 1919 University of Detroit football team later played in National Football League, including end Walt Clago, halfbacks Eddie Moegle and Tip O'Neill, and tackle Tillie Voss.
