The Midshipmen are going back to the White House for the ninth time in the last 11 years after winning the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy, given each year to the winner of the football competition with the nation's three Service Academies and named in honor of the President.

Navy went 9-4 in 2013 and made it to a bowl game for the 10th time in the last 11 years. Plus, the Mids won a bowl games for the eighth time ever and beat arch-rival Army for a series-record 12th straight year.

This was just the fifth time in Navy history that the Midshipmen won at least nine games, beat Army and captured a bowl game. 

The other teams to do that came in 1957, 1978, 2004 and 2009.
