The 1913 Yale Bulldogs football team represented Yale University in the 1913 college football season. The Bulldogs finished with a 5–2–3 record under second-year head coach Howard Jones.[1] Jones had previously coached Yale to a national championship in 1909, returned in 1914, then left Yale and had a long and successful coaching career at Iowa and USC; Jones has been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Yale tackle Bud Talbott was a consensus pick for the 1913 College Football All-America Team, and four other Yale players (end Benjamin F. Avery and linemen Hank Ketcham, John S. Pendleton and William Marting) received first-team All-America honors from at least one selector.
