Before the season[edit]

Previous season[edit]

A fancy, three-sided trophy with metal footballs and logos on its top
The 2013 Navy team won the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy for the ninth time in eleven years

The Navy Midshipmen began the 2013 season with a victory over Indiana and a blowout of Delaware, before they fell to Western Kentucky. The following week, Navy defeated rival Air Force in one of three games for the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. The win was followed by consecutive losses to Duke and Toledo, the latter of which Navy lost to in double-overtime on a missed extra point.[2][3] Recovering, Navy defeated Pittsburgh, before falling to rival Notre Dame in a game where the lead switched between the teams eight times.[2][4] The squad finished the regular season with four consecutive wins, including a 34-7 defeat of Army in the Army-Navy Game. Navy ended their season with a victory over Middle Tennessee in the Armed Forces Bowl. The 2013 season was ninth Commander-in-Chief's Trophy win in eleven years, the tenth bowl game in the same period of time, and the twelfth consecutive victory over Army.[2][5]
