The 1929 Navy Midshipmen football team represented the United States Naval Academy during the 1929 college football season. In their fourth season under head coach Bill Ingram, the Midshipmen compiled a 6–2–2 record, shut out four opponents, and outscored all opponents by a combined score of 233 to 59.[1][2]

The annual Army–Navy Game was not played in 1929 due to disagreement over player eligibility standards.
