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.
