Novo Bojovic (born November 2, 1959) is a Yugoslav-born American former placekicker. Bojovic played college football at Central Michigan before embarking on a career in professional football which lasted nine years.

Bojovic began his career in pro football with the United States Football League's Michigan Panthers in 1983. During Bojovic's rookie season of 1983 he played in his first of two USFL championship games. In the 1983 USFL championship game the Michigan Panthers defeated the Philadelphia Stars 24–22 to become USFL champions. After playing a second season with the Michigan Panthers in 1984 Bojovic along with other teammates joined the roster of the Oakland Invaders for the 1985 USFL season. This came about after the Michigan Panthers merged with Oakland Invaders following the 1984 season. Bojovic's career in the USFL ended with his second appearance in a USFL championship game. That year the Oakland Invaders lost to the Baltimore Stars 28–24 in the USFL's final championship game.

After three seasons in the USFL, Bojovic had a brief career in the National Football League playing with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1985. Bojovic played in just six games with the Cardinals during the 1985 season.

Bojovic next embarked on a successful five-year career in the Arena Football League with the Detroit Drive from 1988 to 1992. During his five years with the Detroit Drive the Drive won four Arena Bowl championships 1988, 1989, 1990 and 1992.
