The 1919 Oregon Webfoots football team represented the University of Oregon in the 1919 college football season. It was the Webfoots' 27th overall and fourth season as a member of the Pacific Coast Conference (PCC). Home games were played at Kincaid Field and Hayward Field in Eugene, and at Multnomah Field in Portland.

Under second-year head coach Charles A. Huntington, Oregon was 5–1 in the regular season and 2–1 in the PCC; the second loss was by a point to undefeated Harvard in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.[1][2][3][4]

The inaugural game at Hayward Field was the Civil War against Oregon Agricultural on November 15.[5][6] It hosted varsity football through 1966,[5] and continues as an elite track and field venue.
