From 1960-63, Navy posted a 30-12 record, went 4-0 against Army, was ranked as high as No. 2 in the country and played in both the Orange and Sugar Bowls.
Navy produced two Heisman Trophy winners during that time with Bellino winning the award in 1960 and Staubach in 1963.
The uniforms they wore featured a traditional navy blue contrasted with brilliant gold accents.
