The 1922 Army Cadets football team represented the United States Military Academy in the 1922 college football season. In their eighth season under head coach Charles Dudley Daly, the Cadets compiled a 8–0–2 record, shut out seven of their ten opponents, and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 228 to 27 – an average of 22.8 points scored and 2.7 points allowed.[1] In the annual Army–Navy Game, the Cadets defeated the Midshipmen 17–14.[2]

Two Army players were recognized as first-team players on the All-America team: guard Fritz Breidster and center Edgar Garbisch. Garbisch was later inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
