The 1916 NCAA football season had a very clear cut champion, with the Official NCAA Division I Football Records Book listing Army and Pittsburgh as national champions.[2] Only Pittsburgh claims a national championship for the 1916 season.

The Pacific Coast Conference, a precursor to the modern Pacific-12 Conference, began its first season of play in 1916.

Rose Bowl[edit]

Oregon would defeat Penn 14-0 in the 1917 Rose Bowl.
