The 1926 Utah Utes football team represented the University of Utah during the 1926 college football season. In Coach Armstrong's second season as head coach, Utah completed their first perfect season in school history. As a reward for winning all their games, Utah sailed to Hawaii to play a quasi-bowl game against Hawaii. Knute Rockne served as a referee for the game, which Utah won 17–7.[1]
