The 1969 UC Riverside Highlanders football team represented UC Riverside during the 1969 NCAA College Division football season.
UC Riverside competed in the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA). For the 1969 season the CCAA changed significantly. Three schools left the conference and moved up to the University Division in the new Pacific Coast Athletic Association. Those schools were Fresno State, Cal State Long Beach, and Cal State Los Angeles. They were replaced in 1969 by Cal Poly (Pomona) and UC Riverside and in 1970 by Cal State Fullerton.
UC Riverside was led by fifth-year head coach Pete Kettela. They played home games at Highlander Stadium in Riverside, California. The Highlanders finished the season with a record of three wins and six losses (3–6, 0–1 CCAA). Overall, the team was outscored by its opponents 163–203 for the season.
