Navy finished the 2013 campaign with a 9-4 record, won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for the ninth time in the last 11 years, qualified for a bowl game for the 10th time in the last 11 years, won a bowl game for just the eighth time in school history and defeated Army for a series-record 12th consecutive year.
The 2013 team is just the fifth in Navy's 132-year history of playing football to win at least nine games in a season, beat Army and win a bowl game. The 1957, 1978, 2004 and 2009 teams also achieved the feat.
Navy has won at least nine games five times in the last 10 years. Before the current streak, Navy had won nine or more games just five times in the previous 77 seasons.
