The 1907 LSU Tigers football team represented the LSU Tigers of Louisiana State University during the 1907 college football season. The season was the first year under coach Edgar Wingard. It was also the first year at LSU for star player, Doc Fenton. Fenton, who was from Scranton, Pennsylvania, had been heavily recruited by Wingard to play at LSU. The Tigers opened the season in grand fashion, at State Field, by beating Louisiana Tech 28–0. A highlight of that game was a 90-yard touchdown run by Doc Fenton. This spectacular win was followed by losses on the road at Texas and Texas A&M. After these losses, LSU went on to win 4 straight games, including its first ever victory over Arkansas. That 4 game winning streak was broken by a loss to Alabama. In the contest against Alabama, LSU led for most of the game because of two safeties. Alabama scored late in the game from an 85-yard punt return to win the game 6–4. LSU's next game resulted in a win over Baylor. Their last game of the season was in an appearance at the Bacardi Bowl. This was LSU's first bowl game, and the first time any U.S. football team played in a foreign country. This game, played in Cuba against the University of Havana resulted in a 56–0 victory for LSU.
