The 1921 Army Cadets football team represented the United States Military Academy in the 1921 college football season; in their seventh season under head coach Charles Dudley Daly, the Cadets compiled a 6–4 record, shut out five of their ten opponents, and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 217 to 65.[1] In the annual Army–Navy Game, the Cadets lost to the Midshipmen 7–0. The Cadets also lost to Yale and Notre Dame.[2]

Three Army players were recognized on the All-America team: halfback Walter French was selected as a third-team All-American by Walter Camp, guard Fritz Breidster was selected as a third-team All-American by Jack Veiock, sports editor of the International News Service, and a center named Larsen was selected as a second-team All-American by Walter Camp and Football World.[3][4][5]
