The 2014 Navy Midshipmen football team represented the United States Naval Academy in the 2014 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Midshipmen were led by seventh year head coach Ken Niumatalolo and played their home games at Navy–Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The Midshipmen competed as an Independent.[1] This was the final year as an Independent before the school joins the American Athletic Conference. They finished the season 8–5. They were invited to the Poinsettia Bowl where they defeated San Diego State.

Before the season[edit]

Previous season[edit]

The Navy Midshipmen began the 2013 season with a victory over Indiana and a blowout of Delaware, before they fell to Western Kentucky. The following week, Navy defeated rival Air Force in one of three games for the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. The win was followed by consecutive losses to Duke and Toledo, the latter of which Navy lost to in double-overtime on a missed extra point.[2][3] Recovering, Navy defeated Pittsburgh, before falling to rival Notre Dame in a game where the lead switched between the teams eight times.[2][4] The squad finished the regular season with four consecutive wins, including a 34-7 defeat of Army in the Army–Navy Game. Navy ended their season with a victory over Middle Tennessee in the Armed Forces Bowl. The 2013 season was ninth Commander-in-Chief's Trophy win in eleven years, the tenth bowl game in the same period of time, and the twelfth consecutive victory over Army.[2][5]
