The 1923 Pacific Tigers football team represented the College of the Pacific (COP)[note 1] during the 1923 college football season.

COP competed in the California Coast Conference (CCC) from 1922 to 1923. The 1923 team was led by third-year head coach Erwin Righter, and played home games at a field on campus in Stockton, California. The team finished undefeated, with seven wins and no losses (7–0, 4–0 CCC). Overall, the Tigers dominated their opponents, outscoring them 171–12 for the season, including five shutouts in the seven games.

At the end of the season, the champion of the CCC North Division (Pacific) was to meet the champion of the CCC South Division (Fresno State[note 2]) for the conference championship. However, the two teams could not agree on a site and the game was never played.[1]
