The Gansz Trophy is awarded to the winner of the United States Naval Academy and Southern Methodist University rivalry[citation needed] football game.[1] It was created in 2009 through a collaboration between the two athletic departments.[2] The trophy is named for Frank Gansz who played linebacker at the Naval Academy from 1957 through 1959. Gansz later served as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs and on the coaching staffs at Navy and SMU.
