The 1937 Arkansas Razorbacks football team represented the University of Arkansas in the Southwest Conference (SWC) during the 1937 college football season. In their ninth year under head coach Fred Thomsen, the Razorbacks compiled a 6–2–2 record (3–2–1 against SWC opponents), finished in third place in the SWC, and outscored their opponents by a combined total of 186 to 89.[1][2]

For the first time since 1919, a span of 18 years, Arkansas did not play LSU in Shreveport, Louisiana. Arkansas went 7–10 against the Tigers, losing the last seven contests. This would become a rivalry known as The Battle for the Golden Boot. The two adjacent states would not meet again until 1953.
