Template:1923 college football records The 1923 Army Cadets football team represented the United States Military Academy in the 1923 college football season. In their first season under head coach John McEwan, the Cadets compiled a 6–2–1 record, shut out five of their nine opponents, and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 237 to 56.[1] In the annual Army–Navy Game, the Cadets and Midshipmen played to a scoreless tie at the Polo Grounds in New York City.[2][3]

Two Army players were recognized on the All-America team. Center Edgar Garbisch was selected as a first-team player by Tom Thorp and Percy Haughton and a second-team player by Athletic World magazine, Norman E. Brown and Davis Walsh. Garbisch was later inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Guard August Farwick received second-team honors from Norman E. Brown and Tom Thorp.
