The 1987 UC Santa Barbara Gauchos football team represented University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) during the 1987 NCAA Division III football season.

The Gauchos competed as an NCAA Division III independent in 1987. This was the second year for "official" NCAA football since the program disbanded after the 1971 season. From 1983 to 1985, a student-run club team existed, but games played by that team are not considered in NCAA records. The team was led by second-year head coach Mike Warren, and played home games at Campus Stadium in Santa Barbara, California. They finished the season with a record of eight wins and two losses (8–2) and outscored their opponents 237–107 for the season.
