The 1890 Navy Midshipmen football team represented the United States Naval Academy during the 1890 college football season. The team compiled a 5–1–1 record and outscored its opponents 204 to 49.[1][2] The game featured the inaugural meeting in the Army–Navy Game, which ended in a 24–0 victory for Navy. After the victory, Navy cadets in Annapolis "fired twenty-four great guns, and then paraded the streets with horns."[3] Charles Emrich was the Navy team captain in 1890.[1]
