The 1910 Colorado Silver and Gold football team was an American football team that represented the University of Colorado as a member of the Rocky Mountain Conference (RMC) during the 1910 college football season. In its tenth year under head coach Fred Folsom, the team compiled a 6–0 record (3–0 against RMC opponents), shut out five of six opponents, won the conference championship, and outscored opponents by a total of 121 to 3.[1][2]

Colorado sustained a 21-game win streak that began on November 26, 1908, and ended on October 12, 1912. It remains the longest such streak in program history.[3]

The 1910 season was the first for the newly-named Rocky Mountain Conference, which had previously been the Colorado Faculty Athletic Conference, but was renamed with the addition of two schools (Utah and Wyoming) from outside Colorado.
