The annual Army–Navy Game was played on November 25 at Franklin Field in Philadelphia. For the second consecutive year, the game was a low-scoring affair; Navy won 3–0 on a field goal by Jack Dalton.[3]

Williams;[6] and guard George Howe received first-team honors from The New York Globe.[7] Brown and Dalton were both later inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
