In their first and only season under head coach Joseph Beacham, the Cadets compiled a 6–1–1 record, shut out five of their eight opponents (including a scoreless tie with Georgetown), and outscored all opponents by a combined total of 88 to 11 – an average of 11.0 points scored and 1.4 points allowed.[1] The Cadets' only loss came against the Navy Midshipmen by a 3 to 0 score in the annual Army–Navy Game.[2]
