The 1930 Army Cadets football team represented the United States Military Academy in the 1930 college football season. In their first season under head coach Ralph Sasse, the Cadets compiled a 9–1–1 record, shut out seven of their eleven opponents, and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 268 to 22, an average of 24.4 points scored and 2.0 points allowed per game.[1] In the annual Army–Navy Game, the Cadets defeated the Midshipmen 6–0. The team's only blemish was a 7–6 loss to undefeated national champion Notre Dame team in Knute Rockne's final year as head coach.[2]

Two Army players were recognized on the All-America team. Tackle Jack Price received first-team honors from the North American Newspaper Association (NANA) and the Los Angeles Times.[3][4] Guard Charles Humber received second-team honors from the International News Service (INS) and third-team honors from the Associated Press (AP).[5][6]
