The 1926 Utah Utes football team represented the University of Utah during the 1926 college football season; in Coach Armstrong's second season as head coach, Utah completed their first perfect season in school history. As a reward for winning all their games, Utah sailed to Hawaii to play a quasi-bowl game against Hawaii. Knute Rockne served as a referee for the game, which Utah won 17–7.[1]
